Week 7 Report

Well, I have to say this week went great! Our 7th week, and the first one that I actually finished EVERYTHING I planned. It's so wonderful!

History/Geography: I bought History for Little Pilgrims and I really like it, but we will be done in just a few weeks. I wanted them to have a general overview of history before we began to dig into a particular era.

This is what we did as I'm waiting for my new book from CBD
called The Earth.

Science: There again I'm waiting on a book called Science. So this week we read a section from my Usborne Science Encyclopedia.

Bible: We've read 5 stories from our Egermeier Bible Story Book. Mostly about Abram this week. We always color a picture to go with it. I don't want "Bible" to become dull or dreaded so I don't require anything.

Music: We read from Meet the Great Composers about Bach this week. Well, I read while the CD was on repeat. My plan is 1Composer a month. We'll see what happens.

B ~ grade 2

English: She started English for the Thoughtful Child this week. We were using First Language Lessons and she was doing fine, but I wanted a less intensive approach.

Reading: This week she started reading one section of Christian Liberty Nature Reader and then she copies the sentence of her choice.

Spelling: I've been having her take a "pretest" and if she gets the majority of them right she doesn't have to do her lesson. This week she only got one wrong. So, NO LESSON THIS WEEK.

Math: She worked through subtraction within 10 in Singapore PM 1A. Honestly, she did a lot better than I thought she would. She's just not very mathematically inclined.

C ~ grade 1

Reading: C read Green Eggs and Ham for the first time on Monday. He's also working through OPG. He's doing well.

Phonics: C just loves Explode the Code.

Math: He finished Earlybird 2B and started PM 1A on Friday. He is my math whiz. It won't be long before he surpasses his sister.

T ~ K4
I don't have too much actually "set" for him to do. He's at the table with Preschool workbooks though (his choice) the whole time we're working.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful week! :)

  2. Great week! Love your blog. I laughed out loud when I saw your post about the filled out magazine inserts! My Son grabs any application he can find, his favorite are the magazine inserts...he fills them out all the time. So funny.

    Have a terrific weekend.

  3. Congratulations on your first weekly report! It looks wonderful!
