Decorating the Christmas Tree

Alex - 10 months

10 months

You got two more teeth.

You say, "Bye Bye" and wave.

You're always on the go.

You sleep very little ... sometimes skipping naps altogether.

You're such a happy guy and we love you!

Week in Review - Week 13

We started our third term of school this week.   Overall, we had a pretty good week around here.

Rachel working on Math.  We made a discovery this week that if we remove the days worksheet from the workbook, she can finish so much faster and more accurately.  I think she just gets too overwhelmed with all of the workbook pages staring her down.

Caleb and Joe were supposed to finish Old Yeller this week, but the book seemed to have disappeared.  We searched everywhere for it, but came up empty handed.  Ironically, I know this is a book that we've owned multiple copies of, but we can't even find one!  I'm sure I'll find it today, now that the week is over.  They both just read on their own this week.   Rachel read Flat Stanley.  Jada read her chapter in I can Read It and multiple picture books.

We've been reading Caddie Woodlawn as our read-aloud.  We studied the beginning of the industrial revolution in history.  In Geography, we learned about the thermosphere and ionosphere.

We began studying the human body this week.  We traced our bodies and will add each body system as we study it.  We also did an experiment showing the permeability of a cell membrane. (the picture above).

Adding skeletons to our bodies.

We traveled to a nearby cheese factory and watched them make cheese.  We also got to taste a wide variety of cheese and, of course, buy our favorites.
