I doubled up on science today, because I’m planning a couple outings later in the week. The attitudes were good, overall.
N (age 12):
Math: N had an assessment. She used to love assessment days because it meant less paperwork. But, now that she no longer has a long lesson review, she finds the paperwork of an assessment to be rather burdensome. It’s only 20 questions. I told her she would get over it.
Bible: N and C reviewed their memory verses (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Exodus 20:1-17, Psalm 1:1-6, Psalm 23:1-5, and Isaiah 53:1-9) and the books of the Bible. They learned about the hopeful future prophesied by Ezekiel after all the gloom and doom. We talked about how prophecies in the Bible always contain an element of hope. We talked about why that is important.
Spelling: N practiced her words with contractions and possessives.
Geography: N and C filled in the countries they know in Europe. Then, we studied Macedonia. There isn’t much kid-friendly information about Macedonia online. We ended up using National Geographic.
Spanish: N and C watched more of their Spanish lesson on video and completed a vocabulary and comprehension worksheet.
Writing: N and C learned about taking a simple sentence and making it more creative by adding details.
Science: N and C learned about the changing states of matter.
Music: C continued practicing her scales. She continued her new lesson.
C (age 10):
Math: C warmed up with mental math. Her lesson was on classifying triangles (acute, obtuse, right, equilateral, scalene, isosceles).
Spelling: C practiced her spelling words containing “ch” and “wh.”
Bible: Combined class with N.
Geography: Combined class with N.
Writing: Combined class with N.
Science: Combined class with N.
Spanish: Combined class with N.
Music: C continued working on her chord transitions, playing individual notes, and reading music. She continued her drumming lessons.
S (age 7):
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 31. She learned how to add one to a number.
Reading: S continued her unit of All About Reading. She warmed up by reading some flashcards (including the sight words “the” and “a”). S practiced reading words and phrases that will appear in the next story she reads. N read S a chapter of Bunnicula last night.
Grammar: S continued memorizing “The Months.” She reviewed the growing list of pronouns she’s learning. She practiced her address for memorization.
Writing: S copied her name and some of the words she’s learning to read using a custom worksheet from HandwritingPractice.Net
