- Jessie worked on various measurement problems this week involving converting between English and metric units. Most of the information was review except for the introduction of the formulas to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
- In language arts, she worked with various types of adjective clauses for R&S and completed lesson 16 in CE.
- For CW, we finished editing last week's draft from unit 3 while beginning work on unit 4. She analyzed the rhetoric styles in the Gettysburg address and completed some research on Benjamin Franklin to use to write an encomium paragraph on Friday.
- We finally got back up to speed with Omnibus beginning Sayers' The Song of Roland for primary and finishing Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream for secondary.
- In Latin, she breezed through her 5th Latin unit reading and began working on chapter 22 with new vocabulary and a review of Roman numerals.
- For logic, she struggled a bit remembering all of the fallacy names for her unit test, so I had her make cards for each fallacy in Art of Argument that we have covered so far to use for review purposes.
- Violet has been working on converting between metric units (km to m) and English units (lbs to oz).
- She completed lesson 21 in SWO G and moved on from adjectives to adverbs in R&S with a brief lesson on rhyme and rhythm in poetry.
- Benny completed his first IP section in Singapore 2B and began a new unit on the multiplication tables for 4, 5 and 10. His Miquon assignments have involved greater than, less than, equal, or not equal to statements.
- He finished lesson 34 in SWO B, learned the cursive letters Pp through Ss, and copied his new memory verse for copywork.
- Yes, that's actually school work on the right. We reviewed verbs in grammar and as part of the review acted out several action verbs.
Benny and I read from SOTW 3 to cover the black hole of Calcutta, Cook, and Catherine the Great. For Daniel Boone, we read Brandt's Daniel Boone: Frontier Adventures. He also completed maps for Cook and Catherine.
Jessie completed chapter 17 in Life Science and began chapter 18 covering endothermic animals and birds.
Violet finished up her Machines and Motion book.
Benny finished learning about sharks and also learned about lampreys and hagfish. He hasn't completed his clay animals yet because I've been letting him play with the neighbor who had a few days off from school for several doctor visits to determine if he had fractured his wrist from soccer practice.
ART / GEOGRAPHY
Violet drew a covered wagon and Indian canoe this week from a Daniel Boone book, but both disappeared before I took pictures. All completed their regular geography games.
