Weekly Wrap-Up: Icy = Inside

In Our Homeschool This Week…
We have had a lot of indoor activities. I have been suffering from having extra fluid in my ears for several days now and it has given me vertigo and nausea. So we haven’t done much movement activities. In addition we received snow/ice, mostly ice which made it not much fun to go play in. (The girls did go out anyway!)

 We caught up a little on our Human Body Science Unit by covering the stomach and intestines.

We worked on some art projects for Kidsfest/4-H. Alyssa choose to do a chalk smudging of the cross and Audrey is doing a water color painting of a sunset.

Working on the painting.

Other Homeschool Happenings…
My oldest is struggling with reading, spelling and math. She is showing some dyslexic tendencies. I am researching different ways to help her overcome these challenges. Do yo have a child with dyslexia? If so, what are some things you use? I would appreciate any resources available!
What’s Cooking?????
Not much here! I started 6 wks of juicing/smoothies fast. So many of my meals are looking like this…

Spinach, pineapple, orange and mango

I do still have to cook for the rest of my family but my Hubby has taken on most of that responsibility this week because I haven’t been feeling to well. 

This weeks recipe of the week was Pork Chops and Rice which I fixed for lunch last week. 
I hope you all had a joyful and blessed week! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Do you have Meniere’s Sydrome(Disease)? My eldest(15) was just diagnosed with it on Wednesday. On the dylexia note, my youngest(8) has dylexia and the one thing that has been very helpful is Lexercise.com. You can have your daughter take a free diagnostic test then if it indacties dylexia there is online tutoring through Lexercise. My daughter has been using it for a year now and i am seeing much improvment.

  2. Hope you are feeling better soon! My 11 year old son is dyslexic/dysgraphic. Instead of written book reports, he does presentations on Power Point, with great animations and narration. 🙂 I have found that spelling programs really don’t work for him. He learns words along with images. Dyslexics tend to memorize words whole instead of being able to figure out phonics rules, etc. So, I have made flashcards with words and images that he can learn. Of course, having a dictionary nearby or a working spell check on the computer always helps. 🙂 Hope you find something that works. It is a struggle for these poor kids. They are so smart but just learn a bit differently than the rest of us.

    Your children’s chalk smudging is absolutely beautiful! Wow! 🙂 And the human body study looks great.

    Hope you have a great weekend. Many blessings, Lisa

  3. Homeschooling when mom’s not feeling well is hard. I have migranes so one or two days a month i am ouut. For these days I have assembled folders with work for my kids 8 and 9 to do.

  4. Hi! I’m a new follower. I came here through Homeschool Mother’s Journal. I really hope you get to feeling better. That really stinks. 🙁 The art projects are beautiful. They did a great job. I hope this week goes better for you.
