Weekly Wrap-Up February 28-March 4, 2011

Testing, MacBeth, Swimming 

This week we didn't follow our normal routine.  Instead it was full of :  

STAR writing test for E-R and I-E

Online post testing for everyone

Finishing up costumes for MacBeth

Learning cues and working on director's notes for MacBeth

Celebrating a 13th birthday


Room Cleaning

Memory Work

Shakespeare is taking a lot of our time that we would usually use for school time.   One week until our performance.   I'll be sure to include pics next week.   

E-R and I-E both started their own blogs this past week. 

I-E's is all about animals--feel free to check it out.

E-R decided her blog's theme will be food--here it is.

These are two girls that normally hate to write.   Now every morning they wake up early to have time to write on their blogs.   So far, I've let them do what ever, but eventually I will be sneaking in some writing instruction.  

 N started his pre-engineering internship at the Navy Base.   This week he got his security badge, meet all of the people that he will be involved with through the program, and learned the scientific theory of engineering.   He enjoyed  meeting everyone, but I really think I am more excited about this then he is!  

Be sure to check out what other homeschooler's are up to this week.  




  1. It sounds like you had a great week! We just celebrated an 8th birthday here and are about to celebrate a 14th birthday too. Happy Birthday to your 13 year old!

  2. If something is going to take up a lot of your school time, Shakespeare is worth it and a blog is a great way to sneak in composition!

  3. I love the idea of creating a blog to inspire reluctant writers!

  4. Thanks for the follow. Hope you have another great week.
