A week of fun, learning and relaxing snow days with a lot of reading again! We had two snow days this week on Prince Edward Island. Celeste and I take snow days when the schools are closed, since her siblings are home from their senior high school classes.
Celeste completed math lessons, spelling, reading, and writing this week. We finished reading Where The Red Fern Grows, and I don't remember crying so much while reading a book in a long time! Reading aloud was a little difficult at the end. It was a beautiful story, but Celeste is happy we are finished this book. We will watch the movie version from 1974, when the library copy arrives.
We learned more about rhymes during the writing assignment for this month's Arrow. Celeste put a little book about different types of rhymes.
We continued our study of middle ages with the Crusades and then Robin Hood. Map work, vocabulary, and extra reading rounded up this study.
We missed our weekly volunteer time at the public library because of the snow storm.
Lots of fun this week with friends, we went swimming on Monday afternoon at the local indoor pool.
Yesterday, we went to the movie theatre with another homeschool family to see Strange Magic. Celeste loved all the music and songs. It's based on Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream. Check the link list for the trailer!
Celeste and I worked on a little quilting project together. A homemade birthday gift for her friend. I will post about it in a new blog post, but it was fun and Minecraft inspired!
