Weekly Wrap-Up: Third Grade #16


This week we finished Unit 17 ~ Daniel Boone Heads West started Unit 18 ~ Robert Fulton and the First Steamboat in our Heart of Dakota book, Bigger Hearts for His Glory.

History

We have been reading about Daniel Boone and how he and his family and friends moved west to settle Kentucky.  He loved the wilderness and had many close calls with the Indians.

Independent: Toliver's Secret
Science: One Small Square: Woods

Writing

We started Student Writing Intensive (SWI) A from the Institute for Excellence in Writing last week.  Funny Bunny finished the first lesson today...so far so good! 

Lesson One includes watching part of the first dvd where Andrew Pudewa teaches the lesson.  He is teaching a live class of children and it is very interactive and fun to watch.  (Funny Bunny liked it so much that she wanted to watch it again the next day)  Topics include Key Word Outlines and Summarizing from Notes and she completed both on stories about the Desert Tarantula and Pillbug. 

Next week the same topics will be continued on three new stories about Starfish, Oysters, and Pearls.

Good with some errors {but I'm not making a fuss over them}

So how was your week?  Thanks for joining Our Homeschool Reviews and for more Weekly Wrap-Up, this week I am linked up with Kris over at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
