This was not such a great week. Car troubles, a broken faucet in the kitchen sink, a broken drain pipe in the bathroom sink, hurt bodies, snotty noses, sore throats, upset tummies, blown out tennis shoes, and heat index temperatures over 100 degrees. Gee, I’m glad the week is over.
This was one of those weeks when I was happy to have some flexibility with our schedule. E, B, and I decided it would benefit us if we switched to economics instead of algebra (for this week only). Algebra is challenging enough without stuffy heads. We only took notes instead of writing essays and watched extra educational tv in place of reading. And, of course, added some extra health lessons as we’ve sought natural remedies, disinfected our germ areas, and changed up our diet while fighting our summer colds.
The highlights of the week were again from our pirate unit study. This week we learned about ships and sailing, and added a bit more to our lapbook board.
