Wrapping Up Week 6 (2016-17)
This week was another odd one, but again I’m thankful for the flexibility homeschooling provides for our family. We attended a memorial service for a family friend, spent a few hours at the Natural History Museum to see the new exhibit on Pterosaurs, celebrated Nathaniel turning 1, and had an overnight at Grandma’s, so I planned a pretty basic week without any extras.
The boys went through their math, Bible, spelling, and grammar almost completely on their own. Elijah finished up Read, Write, & Type and is ready to join Ian on Wordy Qwerty. We read one more biography for the month, Louis Zamperini: Survivor and Champion from the “Heroes for Young Readers” series. And we listened to the audiobook of Exploring Creation with Astronomy, 2nd Edition as we drove all over town.
Of course, once Elijah saw what he was doing, he wanted to do it as well, and he loved it so much he begs to do coding every day. He logged 188 minutes this week, and would have done more if I’d let him. I’m amazed at how much he’s learned and the drawings he’s created with code. For now, I’m learning alongside him so I can help, but I know it won’t be long before he’s zooming ahead of me and will have to figure things out on his own.
