July 17-23 Our Homeschool Weekly Report, week 34: Monks

July 17-23
week 34

We had opening night of Quentin's play this week, so it was a crazy busy week.

Despite all of that, we spent time with friends and the boys did a little school work. They...
  • learned about the Canterbury Cathedral. 
  • made baked pears.
  • played with marbles and Odds and Evens.
  • learned about the crusades.
  • learned about leeches.
  • learned about Exeter Cathedral.
  • completed nun and monk math problems.
  • learned about the medieval stone mason.
  • wrote and sketched in their history journals.
  • made a medieval sun dial.
  • made and wrote with their own quill pens.

    1. Lots of great stuff going on in your neck of the woods. I am curious. What is nun and monk math?
      Blessings, Dawn

      1. Just regular math problems in a Monk or Nun type setting...such as "Ivan is putting books on the monastery bookshelf. He started out with 225 books and he has already put 74 books on the shelves. How many more books does he need to put on the shelves?"

    2. Quentin looks great in the play. I hope he enjoyed it! Your "backseat" week looks still full of learning!

    3. Looks like the play was a happy success! The baked pears look yummy! I hope your week has gotten off to a great start!

    4. Those costumes were great!
