Day 127

I love a stormy, rainy day. It makes me feel cozy and like I want to knit all day long while binge-watching Netflix. We had a pretty relaxing school day, and I let the kids play in puddles between rainstorms. I’m not the type of mom who likes muddy children, but it’s good for them. Or so I’ve heard. At any rate, it kept them from getting too cabin feverish.

N (age 12):

Math: N and I went over her assessment to address any concepts that were still giving her a hard time.

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 Jonah’s disobedience and his subsequent punishment.

Reading: N read a chapter of her library book and a chapter of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I read a chapter of Gathering Blue to N and C last night.

Spelling: N practiced her words with contractions and possessives.

Spanish: N and C watched more of their Spanish lesson on video and completed a vocabulary and comprehension worksheet.

Writing: N and C learned how to write creative descriptions of abstract works of art.

Science: N and C learned about the way liquids behave (evaporation, condensation, surface tension, cohesion, and adhesion). We experimented with surface tension by making a sewing needle float in a cup of water.

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 finding lines of symmetry. Being the artistic type, she did well with this lesson.

Spelling: C practiced her spelling words containing “ch” and “wh.”

Bible: 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.S had an assessment today and did very well.

Reading: S continued her unit of All About Reading. She warmed up by reading some flashcards (including the sight words “the” and “a”). S read a short story. 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.

Writing: S copied her name and some of the words she’s learning to read using a custom worksheet from HandwritingPractice.Net

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.
