I wasn’t able to Get to quite as much as I had hoped to this past week, since I started the week rather unprepared after our little anniversary Getaway. Nevertheless, we still had a Great week!
In addition to their Modelling Wax letter G’s, the girls also worked on making the letter G using Wooden Pieces and Handwriting Without Tears worksheets.

The girls were busy enough with their Lap Books this past week, so they didn’t do the picture study. However, Rascal really enjoys this each week and so he asked if he could do it anyways!
Saint George and the Dragon by Margaret Hodges
GeoSafari USA Search
Geography Songs (You Never Forget What You Sing)
The boys have been watching everything the girls do very closely, and were starting to feel a little left out, so you may have noticed that they have been participating in some of the activities. I am trying to tie in some of their regular studies as well, so we don’t start getting too of course, so this week they completed the covers to their American History Lap Books. It was a picture of George vs. George, and just perfect for G week!
We also have been enjoying the book George vs. George: The American Revolution As Seen from Both Sides.
