Month in Review - February

My brain is really scattered this pregnancy and I can barely remember to hand out school work, let alone blog about it! So I figured I'd at least pop up some pics for February to still be blogging about school. *Yes, I know it's the 12th of March, but shush!*

Brianna decided to make everyone animals with her Bendaroos. This was a penguin for Grandma

In February, Brianna cut an article out of the newspaper everyday to write an opinion piece on it. Olivia loved to help Brianna glue her articles into her notebook

Mystery Class started in February!

Olivia helped make our Valentine's Day cake

Double fisting the markers while working on her Alphabet Book

Our version of a snow day means school turns into Phys. Ed so the driveway can be shovelled!

While out shovelling, Brianna forgot about her glass of water. She was amazed to find an "ice cup" in the bottom of her glass!

Circle stickers for her letter C

Coloring Dora

For some reason she only wanted to write the 1s on this page.

Wooooo for Rosetta Stone! I can't wait to start this in the fall!

World Education Days Results

World Spelling Day:
- Tanya got 407 words correct in 5 rounds (50 quizzes) with a 70.45% accuracy, an 8% improvement from last year.
- Brianna got 279 words correct in 5 rounds with a 65.34% accuracy, also an 8% improvement over last year.

World Math Day:
- Tanya got 747 correct answers in 5 rounds with a 93.42% accuracy!
- Brianna got 768 correct answers in 5 rounds with a 93.1% accuracy, a 6% improvement over last year!
And these are girls that "suck" at math *roll eyes* lol

World Science Day: (was randomly crashing and had to do it over 2 days)
- Tanya got 182 correct answers in 50 games with a 45.38% accuracy an improvement of 5% over last year.
- Brianna got 281 correct answers in 50 games with a 63.29% accuracy, an amazing *20%* improvement over last year!!
Both girls lost a LOT of accuracy points worrying about speed and getting through as many answers as possible rather than slowing down to make sure they correctly answered the questions they already knew.

We can't wait til next year!!
