Week 2 in Review
I revised my Week in Review form. (see gif on left). I almost think it would work better as a planner.... maybe, if I have a space in some area, I can write down a plan instead of a happening?
Liam went back to college; we drove him there on Sunday.
Olympics over; labs on Monday for Aidan, and a GI app't (checked out fine).
Homeschooling doesn't take enough hours in the day. How to extend without getting into busywork?
Kieron -- computer comics; Aidan -- pretending wooden beads are "blood draw tubes".
Presidential campaign; swearing ;-).
Sean getting more efficient with homework; Aidan improving at sounding out words (very slowly!)
Summer ending, trying to get into a fall routine.
St Augustine's feast day; discussed Creed.
Kieron and Clare went on hike; Aidan to Post Office with parents.
Habits Worked On:
control of screen time!
Core Knowledge and Skills:
Direct objects in Latin; pronunciation in Greek; decimals in math.
Phonics for little ones: still on CVCs.
Life Skills and Work:
Cutting (Aidan) -- shaping cookies.
Study Teach a Child to Read
Plan writing for Year 7 child, start having little ones practice handwriting.
Whew, that was difficult! Retrieval is not my strong point!
