Weekly Wrap Up- October 16

MFW Blog Roll

We have had another rainy week here. Thankfully, we were home much more this week- always a good thing in my book!

Here is what we accomplished this week and some pictures of our week.

Last Saturday, we had soccer games in the rain- not really my idea of a good time, but the kids had lots of fun, and Charles was a great goalie! (Not that I'm bragging.)

In school work this week:

Bible: We talked about the Tower of Babel and Abram (Genesis 11-12).

Language Arts: We read chapters 6-7 of Prince Caspian and discussed.

Poetry: We read "Oh Susanna" by Stephen Foster.

Music: We discussed Brahms and listened to several of his pieces.

Math: Kathryne is still plugging along in long division- not her favorite math. Charles is mutiplying by multiple digits, and he is enjoying math. Ashlyne is skip counting by tens.

Picture Study: We are studying Monet. We watched the movie "Linnea in Monet's Garden" and studied one of Monet's garden paintings.

History: We listened to Story of the World Volume two- chapters 3-4. (I learned things I didn't know about the beginnings of Islam- very interesting.)

Science: We continued read Backyard: One Small Square and took and nature walk and drew in our nature notebooks.

Charles's notebook:

My notebook:

Rachel's notebook (She wrote the word "cat" herself.):

Latin: We are learning and practicing verb endings and conjugating.

We also had lots of fun this week. I like being at home. Here's my crazy boy.:

And here was Rachel reading to her tiger after she finished school work today.:

Tomorrow we're off to more soccer games. I hope the sun is shining.

  1. Leah I just read your comment. The Homeschool Highlights is not a MFW thing only.

    I was trying to make that clearer today! Sorry. I love seeing what you're up to!

    Please feel free to contribute. On the MFW Blogroll is MFW only.

    Sorry for the confusion :)

  2. We checked out the book Linnea in Monet's Garden. I didn't know there was a movie. I'll have to see if our library might have it. We've been studying Monet, too. Thanks for mentioning it.

  3. It looks like a great week to me! It must be somewhat warm where you are if the kids could play in the rain. It's averaged rain and 45 degrees here this week.

  4. I love the soccer uniform! Sounds like a fun week for you. I will have to Netflix that movie- it looks like fun.

  5. Uggg, soccer in the rain. That seems to be how everyone is playing it lately haha! Not my idea of fun either.

    You guys look like you had a very productive week :) I'm also amazed what I have learned while schooling the kids(especially History wise). We are loving Story of The World here also!

  6. Our soccer game was cancelled this weekend. And I wasn't sad at all. LOL

    It sounds like a great week!


Thanks for stopping by. I love comments or questions, so be sure to tell me what you think.
