Fun Filled Weekly Workboxes

This week we're still working on Nim's Island & Space with Prof. H, but due to time difference in when videos are being posted we've opted to safe these two fun classes for the end of our week. So for the first three days of the week we'll be having some manner's classes around here, I'll just let you guess why.. I am the only girl around here you know.. even the dog's a boy, and one of the guinea pigs.. So workboxes will reflect a bit of that as well as some history we've been working on. We tend to do history by reading a good quality book out loud and then adding historical figures and events to our timeline. We also add a few pages to our notebook based on the things we're learning, which means the boys will probably have a turn with our fun new toy. We also didn't get to a couple of things last week due to dental appointments, and a few other minor hiccups, so you may see a few repeats..

  • Salt Island of Nim's Island (our lack of getting to this turned out to be a blessing since it's on the activities for this week with Pro. H)
  • Felt Food Grocery Store Math
  • Lots of hands on coins math
  • Space Math Book
  • E-mailing relatives (I know you'll be looking forward to that!)
  • Man On The Moon Day (Neil Armstrong Walked on the Moon on the 20th of this month, so we'll be reading about him and adding it to our timeline, etc.)
  • Abel Tasman read aloud and some mapping to go with it
  • Star Gazing with our indoor gazer
  • Tickets for Ice Age 3 (shh, don't tell!)
  • T.V. craft (you might have to see this one to understand it better.. I'll post about it when we finish it!)
We will of course be plucking away with a few other things this week, but this is our fun stuff that I've planned. I'd also like to play a few word games with Morgan, but we'll see. We may save those for the evening as we're in for some drizzly days ahead this week/month.

What about you, what have you got planned for your Fun Filled Weekly Workboxes this week? Blog about it and come link up here! If you don't have a blog and want to join the fun just leave a comment and tell us all about your workboxes.

Well we've been off for most of the summer, but I'm starting to get back into the groove w/ the workboxes.

Sounds like a good week - I need to do something tomorrow for the moon! My oldest boy loves all things space.
