Journal Entries: Pick a random word from the dictionary (Reliable)- Liam writes out definition and a picture-( Nay) Luke copies the word and draws a picture. A great change from journal prompts! Great way to incorporate grammar, vocab, spelling and copywork! I’m planning to do this a lot more often!!!

We ended the week learning to sign the song “You are my sunshine” and completed reading all our library books! Next week we will continue with world geography mapping, hummingbirds and a bit more on California 🙂


One thought on “A week in photos-

  1. Awww! That Luke– What a sweetie! (Of course I had to comment on this blog post). I’m glad he’s over the “I ruined his life” phase. Sounds like you guys had a great week. I love the journal write idea. We’ll definitely have to try that one!
