It’s been a few weeks since our last weekly wrap-up. We had a light school week followed by a week off for Thanksgiving and we’re back to the books again this week. We have two more weeks of school before two weeks off for Christmas. I’m looking forward to the break!
Our week in pictures…
- Snow day! We had our first snow last week and TJ got dressed to go play as soon as she saw it. The snow only stayed about a day before the rain washed it away.
- Bible and memory work – TJ has been reading a few verses every morning and choosing a portion of Scripture to memorize every term. Right now she is re-memorizing Psalm 23.
- Vikings – this week we studied Vikings – TJ read some books, worked on notebooking, added things to her timeline, and did some map work.
- Pointillism cookies – It’s Georges Seurat’s birthday this month so we did a pointillism project – painting on cookies. TJ decided that she would use her My Little Pony figures for inspiration.
