Weekly Wrap-Up/Homeschool Mother’s Journal 11/22/13

This week we started a few different things. Since Thanksgiving is next week, we have been working on a large Thanksgiving Day Lapbook. It’s a mix of a few different lapbooks that I pieced together, The Pilgrims Project PackThanksgiving Day Speedy Lapbook, & Thanksgiving lapbook. This thing took 3 file folders!




We also watched Squanto and the First Thanksgiving, Told by Graham Greene with Music by Paul McCandless & did some activities from my list of resources.

Another thing we started this week is Write From Medieval History Level 1. This fits perfectly with our Middle Ages theme this year & the kids love the stories! Watch for my review on this in the next few weeks. It is manuscript for M6 & L8 so to have J12 involved I have her write it in cursive.

You can see our volcano project that we did earlier this week here.

The beginning of this week was very exciting for all of us. My baby sis had her 1st baby! A baby girl! We got to visit her Tuesday at the hospital & then went to her place to help get it ready before she came home. She is so tiny!

Next week we will be doing some more activities from my list of resources, especially since M6 was on a roll & did this whole weeks worth in 2 days! We will also be getting the house more organized for Thanksgiving & of course we can’t forget to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    I like the lapbooks. My son was commenting and remembering how we used to do lapbooks.
