Weekly Wrap Up: Board Game Afternoon!
For the past couple of weeks we've been battling the flu in our house. It took us out, and although we schooled on and off for the past week and half; this is the first full week we have been back to the complete swing of things. :) We're just finishing up British Columbia in Geography this week, using the WOW Canada Book. They have been creating post cards about BC, which I will post once the kids are finished doing them.
We finished up the section on The Fur Traders in Canada. It took longer then I would have liked because we had been sick. They worked on their history timelines and we read out loud from the Discovering Canada Series: Fur Traders, doing some of the activities in the book as well.
Book Club Book: The Silver Chair
We finished off our read a loud for book club. As always I am completely amazed by CS Lewis' works. The Biblical imagery in his books is incredible and the kids have been able to identify it quickly. Not only can they identify it, but they grasp it and talk about it frequently. We used the companion book: ROAR to help guide us through our chapter readings.
We ended our week with a board game afternoon with another home school family. We spent the afternoon playing board games and eating lots of snacks! lol It was a great time and I would like to do that more often. We shared a meal together afterward as well! It was a wonderful way to end the week. :)
