In our homeschool this week…
The biggest focus of our homeschool this week was on both the Presidential Election and the Hymn Festival. The children all went with us to the polls to vote. The Hymn Festival is a competition in which the girls go to and play in front of a judge and they receive a score from unprepared to Superior.
Sweetie: This Week she had a test in ACE Grammar and Math in both of these she did well. We, however, require our children to correct the errors they make on the tests. She is finally starting to get done with her work more quickly. Although she still needs to work faster and concentrate instead of play.

This week we went to the Poll Place, Hymn Festival and to our wonderful PE Co-op.
Definitely my favorite thing was the girls competing and doing well in Hymn Festival. I love to hear them play and to see their progress. It's been wonderful!

So far I think everything is working for us but the girls are taking a long time to finish their work. I really think it may be my fault. But as far as our curriculum it's all working for us!

My main question is why are we taking so long to finish school. I'm thinking its because I am not giving them my first 4 hours of the day and I'm trying to multi-task. I'm also not getting up early enough I think. I'm still pondering this question, all I know for sure is we cannot continue to finish at 4 & 5 pm. That's just silly.
I'm currently writing a Nature Study Curriculum for the kiddos next semester for the K-4. We'll take Nature walk and participate in the Great Bird Count in February. A little more low key for the spring. Additionally, I'm putting together Math Folders to help the kids increase their basic computation speed.
Low calorie foods and this week I made Lemon Thyme Tuna Burgers which were really tasty and the kiddos enjoyed them too!
