Week #2

We had such a great eventful school week!!!

For preschool we finished up our Letter A activities on Monday and started Letter Ee. We worked on number 2, the oval shape, reviewed all the colors and had an Elephant theme!!

For 6th grade we did our Saxon 7/6 lessons 6-10, Language Arts Unit 2 finished (almost) she is also writing a 2 page fictional story. We started Geography this week. We are using A Child's Geography Vol 1. She got through SOTW Chapter #2 and science lesson #1 finished.

Here she is doing an apple color matching puzzle.

Our theme this week was elephants but we also did some egg stuff since it works so well with the letter E and the Oval shape. This was a counting egg activity.

We are still working on Creation for our Bible lessons. This week we did Day #3.

A letter Ee tracing page.

She loved doing this color by number printable. This was her first time doing one she did great and wants to do more!!


We made a large matchbook astronomy mini book .

This was soo fun. I found a clearanced solar system set at Kmart. We were going to make our own planets but this was a little less work. The visual effect of the planets hanging in order help her to memorize the planets using a Mnemonic sentence.

Preschooler stamped letter E's on an E printout.

Some sweet and cuddly reading time:)

And yet another busy weekend. We had some friends from NC come to visit for the long weekend. So we took them to Baltimores Aquarium.

We also spent labor Day in D.C.

These are about half the pictures i took this week. I just couldn't make my post pages long.


  1. Those planets are a great find!

  2. Can you tell me where you got the hen and egg puzzle? We got chickens this year and our daughter LOVES. LOVES her/our chickens.
