Alec and Ian worked in their Draw Write Now books. Alec learned about Opossums and Ian learned about the Arctic Circle.
Evan and I read a small little book together called Mary Had A Great Big Dog and then we played a sight word game together. I spread all the sight words our on the rug and using a timer in a "beat the clock" kind of game he had to find the words as I called them out. He was doing rather horribly and I was getting discouraged when he reminded me he had a whole pile of sight words upstairs in his room that he's already learned. I wasn't so sure he'd remember those words since we hadn't used them in ages. He ran up to get them, read every single word to me without hesitating and then proceeded to add those to our playing mat and played (really well) for at least 20 minutes.
Evan worked on two pages in his math book about triangles and each of the older boys picked a book to read instead of doing math today. Alec read Z is for Moose and Ian read Build Dogs Build. We then listened to another chapter and a half in Harry Potter (and since the boys really didn't want me to stop half way through the chapter even though it was time to go, Alec finished reading the book to us in the car on the way to the library).
We met up with some friends and settled in to enjoy our movie. We picked up the next Percy Jackson book on CD and started listening to it in the car on the way home. I loved how much school work we managed to squeeze in on a fun summer day!
