My nephew joined us this week because I am helping out with him but starting next week he will just be coming two afternoons a week and on our co-op day to do Konos stuff with us.
Here is our math - I LOVE Math U See.
Handwriting - they are learning cursive.
We do the Toe By Toe book.
We also did a free art lesson from Hodgepodge's 50 free art lessons. My nephew is really good at art and he enjoys it.
And this is how I get through my week - and prayer.
Konos time - this week we were studying Marco Polo and Leif Erikson. I'm still trying to get the hang of doing Konos so it is a work in progress. But the kids seemed to have fun and retain some knowledge. We went over continents. We watched some videos about the Vikings. Read a book or two about the Vikings and Marco Polo. I got a new map to put up.
For co-op day we went through the items that Marco Polo found on the Silk Road. We then had the kids pretend to be Vikings and "sail" and have races in the pool.

Answering review questions
Then we let them play!
So that was our first week back. Most of the time I stood in the kitchen looking around thinking - what am I doing and how am I going to get all this done. Then I remembered that I need to relax and the days got a little better.
Next week I plan to have a little bit better grasp on things but we will see.
How was your week?
