Wadsworth Family Homeschool
- 24: Decided to start a homeschool for Brinn (almost 11), Tayla (almost 9), and Kade (just turned 7).
- 25: Ordered math curriculum from Math-U-See for $307.40. Ordered history curriculum from Amazon for $39.54
- 26: Last day of public school. Ordered books for our home library from Amazon $56.51
- 27: Purchased a copier for $50, and a whiteboard for $10
- 1: Tressa took the kids to the library. Brinn checked out multiple books about Saturn.
- 2: Eric taught Brinn about parabolas, in context of the spherical aberration problems that plagued the Hubble space telescope.
- 3: Bought school supplies at Target for $36.35. Tressa spent several hours with Mindy planning our Space unit for science study for the next 3 months.
- 4: Eric bought two maps on amazon.com for $10 total.
- 6: Tressa bought math flashcards for $8.57
- 8: Official first day of homeschool. We did math for an hour. Then we went to Mindy's and learned about the phases of the moon and made a moon book with each phase depicted. In the afternoon we read. Bought 7 small totes for holding school supplies = $7.00.
- 9: More than an hour of math. Each kid then read a book about the moon or the sun. They then shared what they learned with everyone else. We also read the introduction to our history book.
- 10: 45 minutes of math. We read a chapter in our history book and discussed it. Everyone did some personal reading. Brinn has reached her 500 minutes for the month already (to earn free passes to 7 Peaks water park). We went to the library.
- 11: Field trip to Discovery Gateway children's museum for Tayla's birthday. About 30 minutes of reading as well.
- 12: Math, history, and then we did our moon phases test. We took oreo's and opened them carefully. Then we scraped off frosting to depict each phase. Once each kid had a full line-up they then had to go through and tell me the name of each phase. Once they passed their test they got to eat it.
- 15: History chapter. Read in the scriptures and then did handwriting.
