Learning Notes Week of August 6

Anthony with book and basil.

Monday August 6

Everyone did math and copywork. Anthony read from Child’s History. Ben also read a Bob book and did Explode the Code. Bella did some work in her timeline book. Lucy read part of a Bob book with me.

Took Anthony to the doctor in the afternoon, so no read alouds. He was very thrilled to get the walking boot off after six long weeks.

Friday August 10

Bella to the orthodontist first thing.

While I was gone Dom helped Anthony with math and copywork. Sophie tried to work on her math but couldn’t come up with a solution to any of the problems. I consoled her and told her that just working on them counted, even if she was still stuck. She also did her copywork.

When we got home Bella did a math problem and her copywork. Then I let her off because her mouth was giving her considerable pain.

Ben and I did a page of math, and some Explode the Code and he did a bit of copywork too.

Ben and Bella stayed home while the rest of us went grocery shopping. We also stopped by the library to pick up some on-hold books.
