This week has been a very relaxed week. We did manage to complete a few of our Weather Unit and Fractions worksheets at the beginning of the week. However, I have used the rest of the week to work on our character building, etiquette and decorum as we were around many relatives. We have been blessed with a very large extended family and therefore we have very loud and busy get togethers which require everyone on their best behavior.
I did manage to get the kids to bake their own cake for the party. They constantly ask me to be able to bake as a group with their own ingredients, which would mean four times the cake mix. Therefore, with the impending large family party I was finally able to allow them this. We used all the cake batter to create cupcakes, a giant cupcake and cake pops. They were all a hit and gave them a sense of confidence and pride in their accomplishments. We have had a great holiday week but next week will be our wrap up week, where we complete our Weather and Fractions Unit. Hopefully.
This has had to be a short overview of the week as we are still visiting family members and I currently do not have the luxury of time or personal space in order to write a more thorough overview.
