Wednesday. It was a typical short day. Attitudes were right on, scheduling was still off.
N (age 11):

Spelling: N practiced her lesson on compound words.
Reading: N is still working on finishing up Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as soon as possible so she can get her free Pizza Hut Book It pizza and watch the movie. I read a chapter of Number the Stars to N and C last night.
Bible: N and C reviewed all their memory verses (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Exodus 20:1-17, Psalm 1:1-6, and Psalm 23:1-4) and recited the books of the Bible. They learned about the return of the Ark of the Covenant to Bethlehem and what that signified.

Math: S counted to 100 by 1s, 5s, and 10s using her hundred number chart. She counted backwards from 30. She recited the days of the week and the months of the year. She learned how to write the number 20. Her lesson was on identifying ordinal position to sixth. She had a hard time grasping the concept when we started identifying to fourth position, but she seems to be getting a firmer hold on it.
Grammar: S reviewed “The Caterpillar,” “Work,” and “Hearts are Like Doors.” She continued her memory work of the “Days of the Week” poem. We reviewed the days of the week and talked about how they are proper nouns.
Reading: S continued her unit in All About Reading. S continued going through her list of reading words, phrases, and sentences today. We’re continuing to work on our hand motions to help her distinguish between “p,” “b,” and “d.” I read a chapter of Ramona Forever to S and H.
Writing: S copied words and the days of the week using a custom worksheet from HandwritingPractice.Net.
