Detail Thursday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

How has your week been so far? We’ve had cooler temperatures this week, and we are enjoying fall. Our school year has been a lot of fun with our hands-on cooking adventures and country studies. Today, we used a recipe that had metric measurements, so we used some math skills to convert to American measurements. I had flash-backs to memorizing metric measures in my school days. I will do a wrap up post this week-end of our meals. We have enjoyed everything so far. Our country this week is Spain, and we even worked on our Spanish speaking skills. I love bringing different facets of learning into our unit studies.

Zone Focus: Master Bedroom – Today we are going to detail dust our bedrooms. Dust anything you have not dusted this week. Get your ceiling fan, the moldings, baseboards, and mini blinds. This is to help you to be able to do a quick dusting once a week during your Weekly Home Blessing Hour.
