This week definitely was more "normal," whatever that really means. Lots of math, reading, science, etc. was done. This is the first week I really pushed their AWANA verses and they really responded by reciting many of them at the meeting on Wednesday. We spend a lot of time talking about what they actually mean, rather than just memorizing them. That's important for us.
I spent a lot of time at home this week, but managed to entertain a few days and still get things accomplished. This was a pretty balanced week for us. Let me tell you, I'm normally quite unbalanced!
Some books read: Football (Blastoff! Readers: My First Sports), Fly Guy Meets Fly Girl (3 times, by a former reluctant reader; I think it's her "gateway book."), Anglerfish (Underwater World), The Saturdays (Melendy Quartet) -- We really loved The Saturdays. It's about 4 kids who pool their allowances in order to each spend one day doing the one thing they really want to do. I definitely recommend it!
Some foods cooked (by the Flour Children, with my help): garlic bread, cream cheese icing, chicken & veggies with pasta
Some academics covered: telling time, doubles plus one addition, PA geography, the letter C, parts of speech, multi-digit addition, the difference between true seals and sea lions, rugby vs. football
