Weeks in Review

I haven't done a wrap up for quite some time.

We celebrated two holidays in February, Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day.  This was the first year that I really made a point to do something for Presidents' Day.  Of course, being us, we read some books.  I wanted to make a craft, but that just didn't work out.  I have only seen preschool crafts, so if someone has a great idea for next year, please share!

We went back to the Carnegie Natural History museum.  This time we went through the polar life exhibit, which was pretty fun.  The kids really loved the giant igloo.  We also looked at animals and plant life.  We've seen everything there now, so next time we're going to get one of the museum-provided kits.  It comes with a scavenger hunt.  That's pretty fun.

Goofy finished his Math-U-See Primer book.  Hooray!  Right now he's working through a subtraction workbook, and then he'll move onto Alpha.  Or maybe he'll switch to Saxon.  I don't know, in all honesty.  I better make a decision about that.

Funny's new favorite school subject is grammar.  She has her own book of Mad Libs, and she's using them to practice parts of speech.  I picked up some Star Wars Mad Lib books for Scrappy to start soon.

Books read:  March On!: The Day My Brother Martin Changed The WorldWhat Presidents Are Made OfRunning Backs (Playmakers)My Senator and Me: A Dog's Eye View of Washington, D.C.Madam PresidentKing Kong: Journey to Skull Island (I Can Read Book 2)The Silver Chair (Chronicles of Narnia)

Check out more wrap ups at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.


  1. It's been way too long since we've been to the museum. I love that place.

  2. Those Mad-Libs are wonderful. I need to dig those out again. Thanks for the reminder. It might spark our grammar studies a little, too.

  3. I am here to supply your comment need. :) Made your chocochip cookies again. The only BAD thing about them is that I have to share. They go waaay too fast, and I have to admit, I eat more of them than anyone. (Don't tell them I sneak when they aren't looking!)

    We are in the throes of moving. I am doing things all the time, and my list of to-do's only grows!

  4. LOVE Mad LIbs!

    Thanks for stopping by. It looks like you had a good week. I actually have a bunch of stuf printed out for Presidents Day taht we wil hopefully do sometime this week! Sad I know, but at least when we DO do it, we will still be learning!

    Oh and health musuem is just that... it has all sorts of learning and interactive stuff just about the body and your health. IT is awesome!


I am very needy. I need your comments.
