Homeschooling6 Days

This week has been pretty rough. You know Josh is sick when he is sleeping all day and hasn’t completed one day of school. Poor guy. He’s still gets a bit dizzy if he stands too long.

He’s getting bored with being in bed.
Since Joshua’s room leads to the backyard we put a sheet up so he'd have some privacy when people walked in and out of the house.

This is so not like Josh. He’s always doing something. He still managed to get his AWANA done. He went Wednesday only to turn in his Bible summaries.
Annette slept most of the day as well. She got up to heat herself a burger around 9:00 P.M. and that alone tired her out.

Ethan did some school today.
I didn’t realize that he was still not feeling well and had him complete writing, grammar, history, and spelling.
Heroes and Heroines of the Past
I had the four boys: Caleb, Brent, Ethan, and Lance listen while I read aloud from Heroes and Heroines of the Past.

Ethan colored a page while I read. I also had him copy a sentence that went with the coloring page.

Lance didn’t want to color but I did have him copy the sentence. I thought he did very well.
Heroes and Heroines of the Past
Since Ethan and Caleb weren’t feeling well (they ended up napping) I had Brent and Lance do the activity which was to make a teepee. This was actually suppose to be done yesterday but the kids weren’t feeling well.

I even let him use my good sheets. He was really excited to do this. I had told him he didn’t have to since his sibling wouldn't be able to help but he wanted to do it anyway.

Lance was suppose to help Brent. You know, work together and solve problems. Lance said he wanted to make his own because Brent wasn't making it right (or the way he wanted is more like it).

As I read the lesson I would have them find the places on the map and globe. We studied about the Vikings.

Here is a picture of Ethan’s binder. I felt like taking some pictures of it. It's memories.
His spelling notebook, pencils, stickers, and chapstick.
All About Reading
I was tired today as well so we didn’t get a lot of school done including All About Reading.
English Lessons Through Literature
This is last weeks cursive. Ethan is still learning so some words are in print. I am still reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to Ethan as part of English Lessons Through Literature
Today we went over nouns, pronouns, verbs. He has also learned about quotation marks, indirect and direct.

After I schooled Ethan it was Caleb and Brent school. We started with correcting their English work from Rod and Staff.

Look at that face.
 Spelling You See
My sick Caleb completing a dictation from Spelling You See.

Brent completing his Spelling You See dictations too.

I am sharing to pictures that are almost the same because in the top pic I like how Brent his holding his blanket. Yes, that’s all that is left of his baby blanket.

Below we were having so much fun during school that I had to snap a picture of Brent smiling while writing.
I was not feeling well myself and kept goofing while teaching. Brent had to correct me a few times and that made him laugh.
Lance had fun drawing and acting his creation. It as fun to watch him draw as he was animating the story.
Lance completing his Spelling You See.

And that’s a wrap. I’m so ready for bed but thought I’d write this post while my hubby finishes with a few things.


  1. I'm so sorry to read that you have illness all around.

    Looks like you are still getting quite a bit done :)

  2. I really like how the coloring pages have lines to write - like a notebooking page. Love that you got to make your teepees outside! It's been cold and snowy here, so we made an indoor one.

  3. How fun. Indoor teepees are great. Ours ended up blowing down shortly after it was so windy.


Sorry about the word verification. I know it makes commenting no fun but I have been getting so much spam. Thank you for understanding and I hope you will take the time to comment. I love hearing from you all.
