We are also covering a Missionary each month for our World Geography Units. This month we are learning about North American and are reading about Cameron Townsend from the Christian Heroes: Then & Now Series by YWAM.

We completed different activities from our learning center to re-enforced some of our lessons this week.  A few of the big hits where these math games:

and  various items from our Continent Boxes. DSCN0582

We had a FULL week.  We worked hard at our follow through on getting checked off each day before calling a close to our school part of the day.  This is one of the areas I want to be more intentional about this year –and this is an area I need to work on and follow through on my part.

DSCN0569At the end of the week we had a store – using tickets they earned from their responsibility charts - and the girls were able to buy some craft items and treats as a reward for completing our first full week of school.

I love what your weeks look like. The Mike Venezia books are favorites around here, and your continent boxes are very interesting to me!
