Homeschool Mothers Journal Weekly Review

 The Homeschool Mother's Journal

In my life this week...
Finally finished the taxes.  Now catching up on household chores.

In our homeschool this week...
We've done several science experiments relating to our study of elements and the periodic table.

Places we're going and people we're seeing...
  Monday:  Homeschool Day at the History Museum
  Wednesday: Writing program at the library and Lent service at church
   Friday:  Library  

My favorite thing this week was...
The spring temperatures we had early in the week.  This morning we woke up to snow. Snow is not my favorite thing.

I also liked having the week off from making the trip to daughters piano lesson.

Finding a multivolume set of various genres of children's literature at a rummage sale. Some of volumes feature mysteries, poems and various types of stories. I can't wait to read some of these.

In the same vein, I also learned I was selected review a product which consists of old (vintage) books as part of the TOS Homeschool crew. These are great books and I am so very excited to read these.  I just have to wait for the weekend so my DH can help me with some of the technical aspects of setting it up.  Watch for my review of this material the beginning of May.

What's working/not working for us...
It seems like it is taking a long time to finish our current science unit.  I am ready to move on to something new.

Homeschool questions/thoughts I have...
I have so many things I would like to share with my children I am not sure when to fit everything in.  

I want to encourage them to find topics they are interested in and then refrain from making them into school topics. 

A photo, video, link, or quote to share...
