October 20-23, 2014: Our Homeschool Weekly Report, week 7

October 20-23, 2014

week 7
This was a short week because I was out of town until Sunday night, so instead of our week starting on Friday, like usual, it started on Monday. We started our second session at our homeschool co-op.

I held auditions for the play we are doing this year, The Keeper of the Tales, 1001 Arabian Nights. James and Quentin made shrunken apple heads in Crafts From the Past class.


Chemistry: Compound Chemistry

World Geography

Northern India

We learned about the land, the animals, the people and the food of Northern India this week.


The Logic of English

  • Reviewed Phonograms: er, or, ea, sh
  • Worked on dividing words by their syllables
  • Spelling Rule: A E O U Sounds at the End of Syllables


Learn Math Fast

Quentin took a unit test in math and James worked on reducing fractions.

  1. Mmmm....we are definite fans of the food from India!

  2. Speaking of Indian food...Malcolm and I just had a date to an Indian restaurant! I ordered cashew dumplings in a delicious sauce! Yum! I hope your out of town time was for fun. Even though you had a short week you still managed to get a lot done!

  3. Sounds much like my week felt, a whirlwind ride.

  4. There is a logic in English? Not really in comparison to German, Russian or French :) Looks like a great week!

  5. Love Indian food! What is a shrunken apple? We are having an autumn birthday party for the twins this week and one of the invitees has fractured his leg so our lovely autumnal walk is out. I'm looking for autumnal crafts - would shrunken apples be one? (Sorry for my ignorance!)

  6. This is such an educational post! I love how you linked your other posts to this one. You rock science, and I am looking forward to the return of Science Sunday on your blog!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
