Day 2 Thursday part 1

Day 2 of our week, morning
We got up late again! Opened the curtins only to see a dreary overcast day,

eat some cearel for breakfast, and while the kids did room clean up I downloaded some things, and joted down some ideas for the up coming Lenten season. Then it was time for chores.
We finally got started with our school work at about 10 a.m.
we started we handwriting, I will put a different bible verse on the board and they will copy it, they also do 1 letter a day, so today was O they will fill their page with O words, in cursive. Then personal Bible reading and study, they each do this on their own schedule, that they make on their own. They just need to spend about 15 minutes reading the Bible and thinking about they read. Pio does a Bible in a year, Maria reads a chapter a day and she started in Genisis, and Clare reads a chapter a day and alternates between old and new testaments, while we listened to Fr. Corapi. Then while the kids got out their literary guide books and had 20 minutes of reading, I cleaned the cat litter.

after we did our reading, we got started with math, the girls use a combination of math workbooks and texts books, all range from 4th to 6th grade and they are books that were giving to me, so we just go back and forth with which ever book explains it better, and then I just tear out the wokbook pages that go along with that lesson. Pio is in Saxon math 8/7 prealgebra. we then worked in our science notebook. for that we read from any number of books on whatever we are learning about right now it is the sun. (we will continue with the sun until we feel we learned enough, no real time schedule for science just a order) then the kids will right down a certine number of facts, today it was 2 and draw a picture to go along with it. and teh notebook is just a spiral 70 page notebook. then lunch and free time.
