Reading: Ian finished up New Year Dragon Dilemma and started reading The Castle Crime. Alec read Operation Orca, Secret Admirer, Adventures According to Humphrey and he started reading House of Robots. Evan read a few more chapters in Dragon Masters book 1 and read Koalas. We finished up The Lost Hero and In Too Deep.
Spelling: The older boys have been playing a lot of Hangman on the Kindle and all three boys worked on two more pages in their spelling workbooks.
Math: Ian made another bank deposit; adding up his money and writing out his bank slip. He also brought his money to the store to buy himself a few things figuring out how best to spend his money and making sure he did not go over his budget. All three boys worked on several more pages in their math workbooks this week.
Geography: We spent a day visiting Block Island and had fun checking out the old pictures displayed in many of the shops.
Science/ Engineering: The boys tried designing their own floats using pool noodles, twine, zip ties, bubble wrap and anything else they could find around the house that they thought might work. It was so much fun!
Ian also started putting together his second EEME kit. He's having such a great time with these kits and I just love that he is able to easily follow along on the videos and do everything on his own.
Family time/Socialization: We spent lots of time with family this week. My mother, sister and nephews came to visit on Friday. On Saturday we helped my husbands grandfather clean up his yard and take down some old trellises and sheds. We went to the movies to see The Secret Life of Pets and ran into more family members there unexpectedly! On Sunday my father and grandmother came to visit. We had friends over to play as part of a going away party on Tuesday.
Art: We had some fun with wood burning this week and Alec started taking a stained glass class with a neighbor who offered to teach him.
