Thursday, Week 6
The boys attended their enrichment program yesterday. Fall ball is over, so it wasn't as hectic when they got home. Tonight is the open house for their program, so it'll be interesting to see more of what they've been doing.

We started a new unit about money today. N completed 2 pages in his workbook adding pennies and nickels. C completed 2 worksheets doing the same, but with higher sums. We watched a video tour of how coins are made at the US Mint website. We dumped out a jar of coins and went over the differences between each coin. We practiced counting by 5's and 10's. We made stacks of coins to equal one dollar. We talked about 1/2 dollar and dollar coins (I didn't have any, but we looked at pictures of them.)

C completed a page in his spelling workbook, a page in his religion workbook, and 2 pages in his word journal. N completed a copywork page on the letter K.

I read the book Cactus Hotel. N read the 7th BOB book (and did a really fantastic job with it! I think it's finally sinking in. We read in a different spot today, and decided that we need to read in that spot every day.) C read independently 8 chapters in a Magic Treehouse book during quiet hour. (I am so glad he can read independently now as I did not like reading those books out loud at all, but the boys enjoy them.) He is eager to tell me about the chapters, so I know his comprehension is good.

The weather is beautiful and they've been playing outdoors during breaks.

About Us
I'm a homeschooling mom with 3 wonderful kids! My boys are 6 & 7 and working at a 1st and 2nd/3rd grade level. We use Catholic Heritage Curriculum loosely, with lots of our own ideas added in. My boys attend an enrichment program one day per week during the traditional school year, which gives me extra time with my toddler daughter, and the chance to run some errands without my active boys.

This blog was a running list of what we do each school-day, but I tend to post here sporadically now. We usually school on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to take DH's days off into account.
