Week 14

This week Chloe started a new English workbook.  I did start her below her grade level when we first started using this series, but she is doing great in the catch up department.

Some Bible time:

Noah continues to grow.

Vocabulary was also on the books this week as well.

Looks like we had a slack week, but yeah, nah, we still got on with the work.

Anyway, this week I'll be linking up with:

I hope you will join us.

Week 13

For the past two weeks on my facebook wall I've been showing people how to make their own Language Arts program without a curriculum.  Yes, without a curriculum.  All you really need is a good reading book.  We tackled one portion at a time.  It's been fun.

At any rate, I've saved you a copy of the download, so you can try it out too.
Just click the page below.

This week in our homeschool......

The girls came to the end of their exercise books
{ well, so close that I felt we needed new ones now }.
It took us a whole 3 months to fill them.

What they look like stacked.
Yep, nice and fluffy.  We fill them up with all sorts of things.

Nature Drawing this week:

Charlotte tried some new stuff:

and kept on working on her 'morning work' { on the right there }.

{ k } is for koala.  :o)

The two older girls are nearing the end of their Climbing to Good English workbooks:

They turned out to be lovely little hidden gems.  I don't think that they are very well known as a curriclulum, and I only stumbled upon them because of my Rod and Staff love.  I really love them for English.  They cover so much and I love their style.

Even Hannah is doing great with it.  I only ask her to do one page a day.   I feel confident that she "could" easily do more, but yeah, I don't push it.  I save that for her Maths.  ha ha ha.

This week I'll be linking up with:

I hope you will join us.

Week 12

This week we took a little Saxon break and went back to our CTC Maths online subscription.  The girls are loving it.  It sort of helped that I said, do two lessons each day and then if you do more I'll give you 20 cents per extra lesson.

Additionally, when we do return to Saxon, Hannah will start 6/5.  Wow.  Amazing.

This week Miss 10 read:

I added a couple of freebies from off the net and a TpT { paid } worksheet pack as well.


And then she painted up some "stables" for her horse.

and moved into this:

Charlotte continued to jump through her little preschool/kindergarten hoops.

So impressed!

Ok, this page might be Grade 1, but it was a trial and let's see.  :o)
Then she aced it!

{ i } is for insect.

This week I'll be linking up with:

I hope you will join us.

Thanks for visiting.

Week 11

I've been meaning to add this one to the freebie list for a while:

It's interactive, as in flip book style.
Just click on any page to download the worksheets.

Great for about grade 1 and 2 - when they're ready to start working on little paragraphs.

In school this week,

Charlotte added a / g / for goat.
