Homeschool Week 32

This is our week 32 of school that equals 160 days so far!! The last few weeks have just been so crazy around our home. The Spring weather has made it wonderful and hard to stay indoors! However we have done great.  Remember all our basics are complete. This week and for the next several you will see lots of Scholastic books we are using. Several months back I bought 30-40 ebooks from there Dollar Days Sale waiting for review time to hit... So that time is upon us!!
Here is what our week is going to look like...

Together:

New Read A Loud: The Wright Brothers at Kitty Hawk by Donald J. Sobol. This is inspired by our vacation in 2 weeks to the Outer Banks.

Memory Bible Verse: Love the Lord your God with all your heart. Matthew 22:37-38

Scholastic Word Study Learning - Good. This is something I bought on the Dollar Days. It takes common, over used words and goes threw other choices to help expand vocabulary!
