Homeschool Week 6
The kids really enjoyed reading books of Anansi the Spider from Africa. I however, don't much care for his stories. We read quite a few anyways.
Stinky has enjoyed Charlotte's Web more than Bubba, but he's only 5 so I expect that. He sat through it really well. And by doing that he will be able to understand more at a younger age when we read.
We took this week off from our Social Studies/Science class because we are ahead of my schedule. That made this week a tad easier.
Below are the books that we read this week. The only book that I couldn't get onto the list was The Ancient World of Great African Kingdoms by Sean Sheeham. We did not read this book, but looked at the pictures to get more of a feel for what Africa looked like and how the people lived and dressed.
All in all, our weeks are going by smoothly and we are enjoying most of it! I am loving our schedule this year and glad that I went with my own lessons and schedule. Thank you Lord Jesus for allowing us this freedom!
