We are going to continue to stay the course with what we have been working on with our states project.  I have now added a little bit of science to the mix.  My oldest is wanting to learn about some I have added some Wild Kratz (via Netflix).

Yesterday, we learned about aardvarks...I was totally into it.  We are going to the library this week (the big one downtown) to find a book on squirels (yup, those rodents in my yard) because my oldest wants to learn more about them.  She also wants another A-Z Mystery book.  My LO just wants books....she is a sponge and wants to READ anything she can get her hands on.

I have a friend who wants to teach my kids about the solar I'm going to let him do that.  He asked me to give him some time to prep and then he will come over afterwork a couple times a week and work with them after dinner.  I of course will have to feed him...but he is super grateful for anything he eats here.

My oldest is wanting to understand how multiplication and division work we are going to explore that some more this week.  My youngest is starting to look at a combination of dots (almost like a dominoe) and write 2 addition and 2 subtraction well as solve them.

Handwritting is going to be something that we are going to focus on some more especially with my youngest.  I don't think she got "much" when we were introducing capital letters because she couldn't see well.  I need to reintroduce them and when we are supposed to use them.

My time of "child led" is starting to look more like mom guided in some areas....I can't quite tell if that is going to good or not, but we will see.

Ecology,physics, us history, and universal 8 in my karate forms.

We are going to frontier culture museum, studying ecology at a creek at our co-op. We also have a tour scheduled at a exotic pet store. We are starting the Captain's Dog. We are also working on my 9 by 6 foot map of the US I am making. We have a very full and fun week planned. Sometime this week we will be starting on studying the Congo.

Still working on our weekly plan but so far my daughter would like to learn about 

[Science] Primary subject: Food - what it's made out of and what goes in it. Secondary subject: The 5 senses which we'll be doing a project on come the end of the week.

[Math] Addition and percentages (she'll be doing the shopping with me this week) plus some work out of her second grade math workbook

[Art] Haikus - What they are, their history, reading haikus we find on the internet, etc.

[Reading] Leisure reading out of Harry Potter and I'll also be finding her some books on food related to what she wants to learn in science.

[Grammar] Daily journal that she does every morning. Helps with her penmanship too. 

[History]  Halloween. DD wants to learn about how Halloween came about. 

Going to try to add in some Geography by purchasing a map of Mexico and working on learning things abotu each state.

Working on adding with 7 and 6, still going over verbs.  Working on Mesopotamia in History and science is still space.  Going to be a very busy week though because we have a ton of extra resources this week.
