Baloo is 5 years 2 months
We had a really feel good homeschooling week. One of those weeks where we went with the flow and it all just seemed to work out. We didn’t get everything done and it was far from perfect, but looking back on it I’m thinking it was just right.
Our schoolroom is in a bit of disrepair this week. We moved some things around in the house (yet again) and the school room just didn’t get completed. It’s our project for this weekend!
Our main focus this week seemed to be sight words. We worked a lot with fun games and sight words!
One of Baloo’s favorites is Sight Word Fishing. I don’t even think he knows he’s learning!
(You can print some sight word fish, along with ABCs, and numbers here!)

I think this program is working out perfectly for us. Baloo is really enjoying learning the verses. He has been very curious about God lately and this is just opening the floodgates!
This week we worked on the letter B and the verse Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God Matthew 5:9. We talked about how to be peacemakers every day and discussed ways that he and Royal could be more peaceful to each other.
We’re easing into a new calendar time/circle time (or triangle time as I like to call it). I am so close to finishing the new calendar! And with it I’ve started Baloo on a daily calendar writing sheet. It includes a spot to write the day, the date, what day of school we’re on, the weather, and includes and interesting fact. I have enough written up for the rest of October available for download here!
We also do 2 daily graphing sheets – weather and shirt color. Baloo loves graphing and enjoys doing these every morning!
(Graphing sheets available here!)
Royal has been really into collecting acorns lately and I thought it was finally time to do something with them! I attempted to get the boys to work together to separate the acorns by size. They fought a little, but did really well all in all!
Baloo made this house all by himself. It took quite a bit of patience and perseverance, not to mention a decent attention span. Can’t say I wasn’t proud when he worked on it for 45ish minutes and completed it all by himself!
That’s it for us this week! We’re linking up to:
