Monday: We had a little lighter lesson day. We went to the library and learned about spiders and made a spider web craft. Kent and Katy worked on corrections from Friday and I helped them make sure they understood any concepts they seemed to be having trouble with. Everyone helped take turns entertaining Clark. Kent had a piano lesson. Kent and Katy completed English and studied dictation. Everyone enjoyed reading and looking at the books we checked out of the library. For storytime we began reading A Pioneer Thanksgiving.
Tuesday: We read science and history altogether and then started on other work. Kent and Katy worked on English, Math and studied dictation. Kaomi worked on reading a story from Mimi about Miff at the Vet and math. Katy had her piano lesson. We read more from A Pioneer Thanksgiving and all worked together to make the cranberry sauce recipe from the book after Felicity and Clark were down for their naps.
Wednesday: We worked in the classrooms at church and went shopping for a few things for our shoeboxes. Kent and Katy completed English. We packed shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
Thursday: We worked on history, English and math. Kaomi worked on reading as well. We worked on weaving a "nutting" basket with yarn and pipe cleaners. Like you might have used if you were a pioneer child hunting for nuts in the fall.
Friday: We worked on finishing up school, before Thanksgiving week activities. We finished reading A Pioneer Thanksgiving. I realized at the end of the day that we didn't complete science, but maybe we will do that on Monday.
