Day 143

I woke up this morning to a huge puddle of water on my kitchen floor and a fridge/freezer with an interior temperature of 67 degrees. Needless to say, much of the day has been spent cooking thawed out food and putting it in the chest freezer. I didn’t want to get behind, though, so I had an independent work day for the kids. No new lessons, but plenty of work to do on their own.

N (age 11):

  • Math: N completed worksheets on converting liquid measurements and simplifying fractions.
  • Spelling: C quizzed N on her words containing the vowel digraphs “au” and “aw.”
  • Reading: N read a chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
  • Bible: N and C practiced their memory verses and recited the books of the Bible through Daniel.
  • Science: N and C copied definitions related to volcanology, along with their Latin and Greek derivatives.
  • Music: The usual.

C (age 9):

  • Math: C completed worksheets on addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
  • Spelling: N quizzed C on her words with various ways to spell the long “a” sound.
  • Writing: C continued her short story planning.
  • Reading: C read a chapter of Goddess Girls: Pheme the Gossip.
  • Bible: Combined class with N.
  • Science: Combined class with N.
  • Music: C practiced the chords and notes she knows so far on the ukulele.

S (age 6):

  • Reading: S practiced flashcards of all the letters through “S.” I read her a chapter of My Side of the Mountain.

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.
