For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Weekly wrap-up

Fridays seem to come by so quickly. The week just flies by and it feels like we have not done much. But, I guess we must have done something.

We have been following a schedule for the past 3 weeks so as to give structure to the boys and that has helped us keep things on going and on track.

One of the changes this week was to put his violin practice first thing after breakfast and before school. This has definitely minimized the complaining about having to quit his play to practice and has added regularity.  Practice have been a bit of a struggle for both of us for the past few weeks but that's for a totally separate post. Today was a good day though, which has a lot to do with having prayed before we started.

Math has been going well. I am very happy to see that Zach has been enjoying Math even though he is not very happy about all the work involved, but he really likes the concepts.

English is going along as well. We finished grade 1 of FLL and have moved on to grade 2.

For reading, Zach has been complaining a bit; he does not really enjoy fiction, so it is a bit of a struggle, but we are making our way through. e only do reading twice a week since he does read a whole lot of other stuff at other times. Narration is going well. I am still to actually add more variety, but that has to do with lack of organization on my part.

Science is on track as well, we learnt about amphibians, reptiles and fishes this week.

 History has been passed over for the past 2 weeks. Zach and I have been feeling pretty tired. No playdate this week either, instead, you won't believe it, but I set up my christmas tree. I know, I know it's early, but I totally love christmas trees. Next week, the baking will start.

We have also began to read Prince Caspian as our read aloud. We had read The lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe a few months ago.

Joho has been busy with playdoh, Super Mind shape puzzles, Math games, worksheets of all sorts.

So, that was our week in a nutshell. Sorry not many pictures this week.

Have a great day,

Yes, the weeks do fly by don't they? I CAN NOT BELIEVE you have your Christmas tree up! I don't know if we'll get one up this year or not. LOL

I love the Narnia books. I used FLL too with my older ones, it went well. Now we're using IEW focusing more on writing but, with my younger too I may go back to it. I like all the poetry they learned. Christmas tree does give the xmasy feeling. I look forward to crafts and baking.
