Weekly Report 4

Another solid week! We're almost halfway through this term, and I'm feeling pretty good about this schedule. My husband's days off are the hardest to stay on track, but somehow we manage to work it out. I can't say enough for what one-on-one attention and instruction does for children. This is one of the major benefits of homeschooling. It is so easy to make strong areas stronger and attack any area where they are weak.

Well, here's an overview of what we did this week:

Quran/Islamic Studies
Amir has completed his recitation of Surah 103. Yasina is still working on it.

We continued our study of Prophet Noah. We'll spent next week acting out favorite parts of the narrative.

Amir is holding steady with copywork. Yasina is showing some improvement with the Kumon workbook.

This week's words were bad, ask, stand, and hand.

Amir is working on short u. Yasina is working with blends fr, br, and tr.

We've been playing the Verb game all week. In the verb game, the children pick a verb and act it out. We love action words.

We've been counting to 100 strictly from memory. They had a much harder time than I expected with this. We played What's missing, where the children have to tell me what number is missing from a 0-10 number line. In MUS, we're stilling learning to make 10 with addition.

We're studying the polar regions. We watched a couple great videos and did a fun peguin craft.

Greetings from Russia! This week we talked about the climate, terrain, the Kremlin, and St. Basil's Cathedral.

Fine Arts
It was nice studying you Mr. Parks and Ms. Waters. Next week, we begin learning about Louis Armstrong and Romare Bearden.
