This doesn't really have anything to do with our weekly wrap up, but I have just been amazed this week at how much I am learning as I homeschool my boys. I mean, I graduated from The University of Alabama with honors; I am certified by the state to teach PreK - 6th grade and our 3rd grade history program is teaching me all kinds of things! Do you know who Esteban was and what he did? I didn't! So moving on, again . . .
Math - Everyone is still just trucking along. Little man is working on counting by 5's, skip counting, odd/even numbers, some measurement, and reviewing facts that we have already learned - (+1, +0, -1, +2, and doubles). The older boys are reviewing square roots, addition with carrying, subtraction with borrowing, and some multiplication facts. We introduced the last two this week (3's and 6's). My oldest memorizes these math facts very quickly, but the younger twin struggles a little bit more. He is still kinda caught up on the 8's. I'm looking for some kind of math fact review that they could do online. I just want the basic facts to be like second nature to them. Nothing too intensive, just a good review for about 10 minutes a day. Any suggestions?
Little man found these all over the front lawn and loved them! I believe this came from a mock orange tree, but don't quote me on that.
This was the original kitchen and cook's living quarters.
Taking a peek into the slaves' quarters.
Here we are waiting for our group's turn to tour the inside of the house. Our homeschool group had to divide into three smaller groups to tour the inside of the house. We were group #2.
This is the largest mound on site.
And we got to climb it!
Um, that is NOT one tsp. That is one heaping tsp.
They were supposed to drink the water that came through the paper towel to see what it tasted like.
Apparently not very good. It was super super salty!
Don't forget to head over to Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers to see what everybody else has been up to this week. Also, let me know any great ideas/websites/products for math facts!
