I have no plans for anything “special” on Labor Day. My spouse is working and we are getting ready for school to start tomorrow!
Just a note about what we did last week before the official start of school:
History (Story of the World I)– We did some pre-reading from library books – mostly about Egpyt.
Math (A Beka 2/Singapore EarlyBird 1B)– Both older children completed a few pages in their workbooks. We breezed through three lessons already in A Beka Arithmetic 2. The math supplement books Child #1 worked on during the summer kept her pretty much up to speed. I plan to speed through the ‘review’ that is built in to the beginning of the math book. (How do year-rounders deal with this, I wonder?)
Spelling (Spell to Write and Read) – I gave Child #1 a spelling diagnostic test. She scored at the same grade level as her final spelling diagnostic at the end of May. Nothing gained, nothing lost. Still pencil-phobic!
Science (Apologia Astronomy) – I read the first page and a half of Chapter 1 aloud to all the kids to get a jump on that first week’s planned work.
