Our Week Ahead ~ 25 March 2013

We are about to start wk 7 of our history schedule and the first term seems to have slipped past so fast!

I only pull out a terms worth of work to place in our working folder, which this term is 10 weeks worth of our schedule, booknotes - if any - maps, colouring pages and any related sheets

If we don't feel like choosing from these sheets, we just ignore them  ☺

Family Read Aloud:
The House of Love ~ Elizabeth Cheney (continue with)
Aurelia Wilde is cruelly selfish and downright miserable-a victim of her mother's desperate attempts to place her delicate "prized possession" on an unreachable pedestal. But her glory is only surface deep. Aurelia's complaining spirit is a stark contrast to that of her servant-girl, Doris, who knows that in spite of life's troubles, she will one day "dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Her many talents and cheerful disposition cause her to be loved and appreciated, even by the notable residents of Waverly Manor. How jealousy swells within Aurelia's vengeful mother! She'll get even yet.

History & Geography
