Back to our Routine!

Too bad it is already Thursday, lol. Carrie finally seems mostly back to normal though and I am SOO glad. We did a full morning of school and the kids did fantastic. Beth and Matt learned about cubes, cylinders, cones, and spheres in math. We drew them, made them out of playdough, and found examples around the house. In reading Beth reached Day 5 of her McRuffy workbook and took a little quiz/review. She got all the answers right - on to week #2! I can also tell that her handwriting is really improving.

Beth and Matt both started their journals today. They each chose a few pictures that they took yesterday at the zoo, and then dictated a little about the animals in the picture. It was cute to see what they remembered and liked about each animal.

Here they are working...Carrie's okay, she just wants more cheerios.
