Week 28 Plans

So this week is our 28th week in school. We are loving school on our schedule we have this year. I can't tell you how much difference the workbox system has made in our year! Sue is wonderful and the system really has helped our family greatly! Tuesday off to the Dentist, all 3 kids have apt. Hoping for no cavities once again!! Gymnastics Tuesday too. Other than walking every day for 45 mins this is what our week looks like!

Together:

Memory Verse: S - Submit yourselves, then to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

Mineral & Rock Unit Study: Here is our new chart to help learn how to categorize the differences.


Read Aloud is still Soft Rain, we are loving this book!! I am also adding in a history pocket activity this week from Evan Moor to relate to the Indians! Thinking this will be a nice addition.

Draw Write Now book 6.

Writing Prompts for this week are as follows:
Would you rather be a rainbow or rain drop?
Imagine you could walk to the end of a rainbow, what would you see on your journey?
The Easter bunny decided he would not deliver eggs this year. Write a letter to him to help change his mind.
World Health Day is April 7 - Write about 3 things you can do to keep yourself health.
