Weekly Homeschool Wrap up

I do have to say that our Week went awesome! EJ and Bubba both loved every bit of it. They both did well with all of their lessons. Bubba's "lessons" are a little more laid back seeing as he is quite young still. he comes and goes throughout the day pulling out one of his puzzles, worksheets, etc. I just have them readily available when he wants to do it. EJ is more scheduled. we usually do about 2 hours of work throughout the day. these 2 hours are sliced up between helping Bubba, Taking care of the baby, cooking, etc. Our Schedule goes in a certain order though.
  • Opening (morning prayer,Pledge of Allegiance, and Calendar Time)
  • Religion
  • Phonics (book work)
  • Math (book work)
  • Art
  • Phonics (Meet the sight words DVD's,Flashcards, and easy readers)
  • Geography
  • Math (remaining book work if there is any)
  • Handwriting
  • Piano
We always start our Day off with the Lord. My children know that he is the most important thing in our lives and that everything needs to be started by praising him.

Our Phonics is all Review right now as she already knew the beginning work for K Phonics. We are just going over it again to make sure she remembers.

Math starts with writing out numbers 1-12. Then we move on to worksheets. EJ actually loves worksheets. she loves the feeling she gets when she completes them and sees how wonderful her work is.

Then we have art where we either have an art project of some sort to work on or we do color pages or something fun.

Then we use Meet the Sight words. We will watch the DVD (if EJ still needs practice) then go over the flashcards and read a few easy readers.

Next is Geography. Each day changes to something else. Next week we will be learning about china. I am sure EJ will enjoy it tons!

Next we will finish up any math sheets we didn't get finished before. Since Emery is doing 1st grade Math I don't want her to get frustrated. If I see her starting to get frustrated we will stop and resume it later on in the day when she can start fresh.

Handwriting is also review right now. She can write all of her letters but I want to make sure she does them correctly. If she learns them incorrectly she will most likely have trouble when it comes time for cursive writing.

lastly is Piano. This is EJ's favorite time of the day. She loves the piano and has wonderful posture!

On Fridays we throw in Science at some point in the day. This week we did Sink or float. Daddy joined in and they all had a blast!
