Jessie completed a few days of review at the beginning of the week and worked her way through the entire IP section on volume by Friday.
Violet continues to work with operations involving decimals. This week she focused on multiplying and dividing a decimal by a whole number.
Benny completed his IP unit on division, worked through a short unit on fractions in the textbook and workbook, and began the unit on time on Friday. In Miquon, he has made it into section H which covers fractions.
Jessie is working with prepositional phrases in R&S 6. She completed lesson 5 in CE1 and began lesson 6. The picture on the left shows her sample personification created for CW Poetry for Beginners. She also began reading The Prince and the Pauper by Twain for literature.
Violet is also working on prepositional phrases in R&S 4. She rewrote "The Ant and the Dove" for CW Aesop as well as 5 days of selected passages from Harry Potter for cursive copywork. For dictation, I've started having her repeat the original sentence out loud to me before writing (which is not a popular decision). We're still using Prince Caspian for our selections. She completed lesson 28 in SWO F and finished reading All Things Bright and Beautiful by Herriot for literature.
Benny completed his regular phonics work in Phonics Pathways and ETC4. He continues to do very well with his SWO A lessons and is still plugging away one line a day on Dr. Seuss's ABC for copywork. Additional library books that he read aloud this week included Danny and the Dinosaur, Sammy the Seal, and Albert the Albatross all by Hoff. For literature, we completed Mountain Top Mystery by Warner.
Jessie completed lesson 26 in LfC C and lesson 23 in EG1 while Violet completed lesson 27 in LfC A.
In chemistry this week, Jessie took the quiz on the biochemistry unit on Monday. Then she worked on various topics on the application of chemistry including perfume, rubber, plastics, and fireworks.
She also drew a picture of her own fireworks display.
This week in earth science, we caught up on labs from last week and covered the topics of soil and the Grand Canyon.
Henry has kept himself busy this week and has gotten lots of exercise. He's been egging various siblings into chasing him by swiping some of their things and going outside to play on the nicer days.
