Art: It's one of those things I have to gear myself up for. I'm going to focus on art this month.
- This week penciled self portrait
- Week 2 still life in cray pas
- Week 3 landscape in water colors.
- Week 4 work with acrylic paint outside.
- Week 5 we'll do a painting using acrylic paint (I'm not brave enough to let them have at the oils)
History: We're ready to move on from King Arthur.
Math: all but Ishmael have fallen a bit behind. I need to work in some one-on-one time with each kid.
Science:...isn't going so well. I'm going to have to buy a curriculum in January. We will focus on nature studies in the mean time.
Language Arts: going extremely well. All the kids are thriving.
Geography: was set aside for a time. We want to pick it back up this week, we shall see.
Latin: going very well for most. Joshua struggles with the grammar forms and spelling. I'm thinking 4th grade is a bit early for him. He does well with the vocabulary though so for now he'll just plug along. I plan to revisit this book with him again when Jeremiah does it.
Spanish: Jeremiah has a few cd's and workbooks. He's having fun with it. He can carry a light conversation and tell you that we keep the forks in the kitchen. lol
Reading/Literature: The boys are reading through Kenny and the Dragon together. It's a very fun book. They both read 2 chapters and then I read it aloud for Jeremiah.
Jeremiah is working through the Little Bear collection.
Kelsea and I are reading Jane Eyre together.
