HomeSchool Check in - our week 2

Another wonderful week as homeschoolers!!! Here's the rundown

Bella - flying through CLE math 202 and LA 202. not sure if i should just have her take the test in these and move onto 203 light units. I mean this is ALL review and if its new she gets it right away.....
       geography and citizenship is moving right along. She loves learning about the statue of liberty and the flag and everything that goes with it. I cant wait till we go to the statue this spring/summer, since last year it was closed when we went.
     Her cursive is so natural and she is just "getting it"
        gymnastics her first competition is going to be March 3. She is excited and nervous all in one. i mean the girl JUST started taking rec classes 6 months ago and just blew through them and is now going to compete level 2.

Lorenzo - We are up to lesson 12 in CLE math 102. I slowed down now that we are doing place value so he really has a good grip on math. He is natural in it, but I want to make sure everything is set in his brain. besides he is 5, whats the point of rushing!
       in OPGTR he is up to lesson 47. I spent Thursday and Friday making sentences as review from all the blends he has been learning. We will move on to the next lesson on Monday. Again I am not rushing through this, I think its important for us to move at his pace

 AAS we are up to step  8. Super easy for him as its just the short vowel spelling. We start blends soon and that will be "newer"

We started to work on our Elemental Science this week. All about plants. Bella LOVE LOVE LOVE making the lap book. We are working through it fast as she is interested and engaged in the lap book. This is a great science for k-3, its light yet concrete. Also if you have a crafty child like mine, its prefect. I look forward to more of these science lap books when this one is complete!

In Art the kids made Winter Tree Water Resist pictures. They loved the final outcome of these!
