Our Week in Review - January 30 thru February 4



Another week of homeschooling is behind us. Some days, I feel like we've been very productive and accomplished much. Other days, I wonder where all of the time is flying quickly off to. Can you relate?




This week, we finished the Drive Thru History: American History series. My son was sad to see it come to an end as he loves learning with host Dave Stotts. He appreciates Dave's historical accuracy, Christian relevance, and downright silliness. A great combination for a fun learning experience. We also watched two episodes on Greece from the Drive Through History: Ancient History series in conjunction with a special unit we are doing on Greece utilizing Home School in the Woods. (Special note: A review of Home School in the Woods will be posted February 21st.)




For math, we continued our venture in Times Alive which helps reinforce multiplication facts in a fun way. Because my son has dyscalculia, he has had difficulty retaining math facts. Times Alive has helped. (Special note: A review of Times Alive will be posted on February 8th.)




In science, we have continued our study of animal science/biology. Yesterday, we watched the Imax film Born Wild and learned how human beings have been good stewards of animals who were in danger. Today, we are going to Oakes Museum of Natural History for a Curator Club 2 class on Raptors. We always enjoy our visits to the museums and learn many new things from Miss Beth and Miss Helena.




In drama, we will be returning to Messiah College tonight to watch their production of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. One of the books from the Chronicles of Narnia series by C. S. Lewis, this is one of our favorite series.
