Day 110

Another “Fun Friday” is upon us.  We’re going to spread this one out over today and tomorrow, because I still have a lot of clean-up to do from five sick kids and one sick husband over this last week. Today, we focused on academics; tomorrow, we’ll focus on projects/experiments.

N (age 11):

  • Reading: With all the geography studying focused on the Middle East lately, we’ve found ourselves inadvertently addressing how girls and women are viewed and treated there.  As a result, N chose I am Malala as her next book.  She read the prologue and first chapter today.
  • Geography: N and C filled in their South America and Central America maps, and they filled in all the countries they’ve learned so far on their Middle East maps.
  • Music: N began her new lesson, which is a song in 4/4 time in the key of G Major, with an occasional C sharp thrown in.

C (age 9):

  • Reading: C read another chapter of Moby Dick (abridged).
  • Geography: Combined class with N.
  • Music: C is going to continue last week’s lesson, because she’s still a bit hesitant on it.

S (age 6):

  • Math: S practiced counting to 100 with me. Then, she completed a lesson on showing time to the hour on an analog clock and writing time to the hour digitally.
  • Reading: S and I continued to tell each other words using the short vowel sounds for “a” and “e.”
  • Writing: S said the short vowel sounds for “a” and “e” while writing them on the board repeatedly.

I was an education major in college, but I hated teaching. And then I started homeschooling. Good days, bad days, I love them all! It's a great adventure with my favorite people in the whole world.
