Homeschool wrapup, 6/23-6/27

Reading: James Herriot's Treasury for Children. We've really enjoyed the stories in this book this week, even though some of them are a little sad.

Language Arts: Finished up Little Bear.

History: Hero Tales. Neither Jamie nor I like the book at all, so we're not reading it anymore when it is scheduled. This week was David Livingstone and Harriet Tubman, both of whom he found interesting, but the ones scheduled in two weeks are John Wesley and someone else and I just....don't think so. I don't think that will hold his attention at all.

Math: Continuing in Horizons 1. Subtraction maybe getting a little easier this week. Next week while we're off school, we are going to work on subtraction flash cards and workbooks, hopefully that will help.

Science: This week we learned how telephones and televisions work, as well as something else I'm completely forgetting.
