Weekly Report...Week 18

Not much happened this week as far as school goes. Magnus was sick from Saturday to Thursday with a fever and cough. Then, Thane woke up with it on Thursday. Thankfully it didn't last long for him. Collin and I have both been fighting it off.

Tapestry of Grace (Both)
This week we learned about Christopher Columbus.

History...We listened to the chapter in SOTW that pertains to Columbus. The boys created some booklets to go into our lapbooking notebooks. Magnus has also read several books about Columbus on his own. I have a basket full of books that relate to what we are learning in history and science and he is always eager to read the treasures.

Literature...Magnus is continuing to read I, Juan de Pareja. He has had nothing but good things to say about it. Hopefully we will be able to discuss it next week.

Language Art (Magnus)
Grammar...did not get done this week
Spelling...waiting for Spelling Power to arrive.

Phonics (Thane)
We played a few games from Happy Phonics, but formal lessons did not happen this week.

Magnus...I printed off a few worksheets from the internet for him to do. Also worked a bit more with place value.

Thane...this kid begs me for worksheets! I gave him a few that included addition up to 20. On a sheet that had 45 problems (which he wanted to do all) he only missed one! We have been skipping some lessons in his book as I feel he knows what 8+2 equals.

Science (Both)
We finished reading One Small Square: the Woods this week. I had the boys draw pictures of a scene from the woods. They had to include at least one mammal, one tree, one amphibian or reptile, one fungus, one bird, and one insect.

Latin (Magnus)
Nope...didn't happen

PACT Classes
Magnus...Unable to attend any because he was sick.

Thane...attended Mrs. P's Kindergarten Class and had a Valentine's Day Party.

Thane and I also went on a field trip with our charter school to see the play Swiss Family Robinson. This was the first play Thane has attended and he LOVED it! It was very entertaining. Unfortunately Magnus was too sick to join us.

Hopefully this weekend will bring much rest for us. See you next week!
