It's all about the Sequence....

Friday, April 30, 2010


We are drawing near to the end of school...this is the first normal week we have had in awhile.  We have finished our history for the year (Biblioplan's Ancient History). Next year we will move onto the Middle Ages. We are close to finding a stopping point for both boys in spelling.  Math and writing will be the subjects that we will work on probably until almost June.  Zach needs to finish his pre-algebra, and both boys need to finish their writing program or at least get a little closer to finishing them.


We are currently reading The Phantom Tollbooth.  This book is so entertaining.  The boys are learning so much about word choice and play on words.  As we are reading the book we are also discussing the characters, plot, setting, conflicts, and eventually the theme of the book.  I am using Teaching the Classics that I got from the curriculum fair last week to walk us through the book.  This is such a great read aloud...one that is
not to be missed!

We recently got a new game in the mail...Sequence.  I had never played this game until Tim and I were introduced to it by some dear friends.  We really enjoyed playing it with them so I decided to order it.  It came this week.  The boys and I immediately sat down to play it.  They really enjoyed it even though I beat them twice! LOL

I had forgotten about Phantom Tollbooth. I'll have to add it to my read-alouds for next year.
