In our homeschool this week… It was our first week back after Christmas break so TJ and I eased into things with half our subjects. I'm glad I didn't schedule a full week because it was a very nice, relaxing way to ease into the rest of our school year.
We did our normal morning routine - Bible reading, devotions, math drill, and recitation. She worked through 4 lessons in math with her father and we also did three grammar lessons (she wanted to!), two chapters of Story of the World, and she's working on her Chemistry experiment as I type (density).
We also watched the student portion of IEW and she learned how to do key word outlines and wrote her first draft of The Tortoise and the Hare. She really enjoyed Mr. Pudewa's teaching style.
I’m reading… The Portrait of a Lady and I have a few books on my night stand for fun reading. TJ started On the Banks of Plum Creek this week and also read a few books in the You Wouldn't Want to... series. I'm reading aloud The Wheel on the School.
I'm watching... Lark Rise to Candleford! Season 4 just came from the library. TJ and I are watching Little House on the Prairie - we're part way through season 1 right now.
