We had a four day week. Friday, Lupe took the boys camping while Annette and I had some cherished girl time (I'll write a bit about that tomorrow).
Here are some pictures from last week.
I’m not exactly sure what this is, haha, but I thought it was cute.
And as you all may know he’s into perfecting his birds.
I really like this page Ethan did with the ant, lamprey, and bird..
Again, I thought this was cute and I know what it is!
How cute, for dinner he put a Wendy’s chili.
Love the drawing of the couch.
He put pretend words in the book.
Lance is using the 60 Day Plan Do-It-Yourself.
I like how he draws little stick figure people doing things in the picture.
When checking his journal pages at the end of the day I noticed he didn’t put the title and page number so he had to go back and do that.
Lance put that he doesn’t eat breakfast. He loves pot pie, enjoys chocolate milk and donuts, and his favorite pizza is cheese. Wow, his favorite meals are all junk foods. What about the beef soup, sweet potato chips, and oatmeal that mom makes.
He loves watching Curious George.
1. I can die.
2. I don’t know how to fly.
3. I don’t have a license.
4. How do you become a pilot?
His inspirational quote I rewrote under his. His writing on Wednesday was a bit sloppy. I don't know if it's a lazy thing or he really has trouble. I don't want to stress him out about it right now while he's using Dyslexia Games.
I do encourage him to always do the best to his ability and for Jesus. If I comment on it being sloppy when he did do his best he has a melt down. Of course I didn't realize it was his best but I'm learning. So now I always praise him and suggest how he could work on (for example) the letter r or n.
Some days he does really good with writing (still not up to par with other kids his age but good or what I call Lance good).
The date page above has marker bleeding through from the other side. He likes to use the markers more than colored pencils. The only problem is he goes over the same spot as if he’s use crayons or color pencils which bleeds through.
The page below is from (aff) Teach Your Child to Read, Write, and Spell: 100 Easy Bible Verses.
And as you can see, Lance loves to add things to his pictures. I think it keeps him interested in his page.
Brent is almost done with his journal. Maybe another week or so. I’m trying to decide which journal to use next!
Copywork from a book called Battles.
I love this page because it shows he took his time. Something we’ve been working on.
I colored these two pages. CHRISTmas colors, I love this time of year.
With the Spelling Time page Caleb is using words from (aff) Mastering the Top 150 Misspelled Words. He is also writing the same word twice. Once in cursive and again in print.
He loves (aff) How Did You Do It Truett, or I guess I should say he’s really enjoying this book. This is a required book for my older kiddos.
Awe, he added some leaves.
And that was our Thinking Tree week. I look forward to sharing a Thinking Tree year in 2016. I plan to go into more detail with how we are using them and what books the kids will use.
Right now the boys are still using Dyslexia Games so I continue to keep the rest of their schooling low key.
If you live right, chances are your children will too. But teach them everything. What you don't teach them someone else will-and you might not like those lessons.-The Delany Sisters
