Since I have schoolwork written out by the month, whenever we get to the last week I have to be a bit creative trying to fit in things that slipped through the cracks. So this week we're having a daily reading from It Couldn't Just Happen; a daily folk song (You-tube is helpful); and a bit of extra push to finish off math units and sections of the history books. No special reason that we HAVE to do that--it just feels better when you start a new month fresh.
Crayons' schedule for today:
Singing and science reading with Ponytails
Having a look at a jar of beans we're sprouting (new science challenge)
Bible, spelling and math with me (we are still doing spelling every day; next month's language focus may be a bit different)
Finishing a chapter of Life of Robert Louis Stevenson
History reading from George Washington's World: "A King but not a Ruler"
Stories from Bulfinch's Age of Fable: "Dryope," "Venus and Adonis"
