real life homeschool day

This Week

This week we did

  • Circle Time 3 days
  • make good progress in math (Jaeger passed his lesson he’s been in for 2-3 weeks; Hans passed 3 lessons- MUS lessons typically average a week each)
  • phonics 3 days (I have a goal of 3 days a week)
  • Elementary Lessons (Young Peacemaker, Covenantal Catechism, Story of the Middle Ages, and Explore His Earth)
  • ignore the garden
  • nature walk and picnic with friends
  • work on Latin 4 days, and Hans completed LFC A!

This week we did not

  • do anything other than piano practice on our nature study day
  • do Circle Time on 2 days
  • have Friday wrap-up meetings
  • make it to the grocery store

Being productive is not the same thing as getting everything on the list checked off.

    Thanks for the reminder about being productive. It looks like you had a good week. I am going to add the book about William the Conqueror to my reading list for my son.
