Weekly Recap 5/27/12

OPTGR – Bean completed through Lesson 128.

The books Bean read to me or DH:

Biscuit Visits the Big City                                Biscuit Finds a Friend
Biscuit Wins a Prize                                           Biscuit’s Day at the Farm
Biscuit Wants to Play                                       Biscuit and the Lost Teddy Bear
Mittens, Where Is Max?                                   Snowball Soup
Biscuit Goes to School                                      Biscuit and the Little Pup

Read Aloud – Babe, the Gallant Pig

ETC – We finally finished ETC5! Yay! We’ve completed the first two lessons of ETC5 ½. I’m not making Bean do any of the writing since this is a review to help solidify the rules (versus improving penmanship).

Handwriting – This week was a mix of pages from the D’Nealian 1 book, a Start Write worksheet in cursive,  and the final letter for her Daisy pen pal (also typed up on SW).

Math – Bean completed through Lesson 52. Recent lessons have been dealing with tens – counting by, and adding.

Spanish – We started Leccion 6 this week. There really wasn’t anything new introduced in Leccion 5, so there was no reason to spend two weeks reviewing it.  In 6, body parts are introduced, the kids learn a counting song (“10 Little Indians”), and a few more letters from the alphabet are added. Bean cannot roll her R’s to save her life. I’m hoping that’s something that will come with time. She can’t blame it on a missing tooth since she wasn’t able to roll them before it fell out. DH doesn’t roll his R’s either, though I don’t know if that’s because he can’t or just doesn’t.

Logic – We’re still plugging through Hands-On Thinking Skills. Bean isn’t as interested in it as she was at the beginning.  It’s fairly repetitive, and I don’t think it’s challenging her. There are a few problems she’s had to think about, but for the most part, she’s kind of bored with it.

The flip side is that Bug absolutely adores the attribute blocks. She loves taking them out placing them on the outline of the shape on the lid, and then putting them back in the correct spot in the box.
