Week 17: Squeezing in a bit more...

Jessie's 8th Grade
  • Jessie continued to work with coordinate systems and linear equations this week in algebra. Her quiz initially didn't go very well, but she was able to find and correct her mistakes with no problem.
  • In CW, she focused on writing analogy paragraphs.  She completed her written paper on the Oregon trail for grammar as well as some her unit and test on verbs.  She has finished reading Pride and Prejudice, which we will discuss over break; but is well behind in her reading of The Count of Monte Cristo.  She did fairly well on lesson 15 in vocabulary.  We may need to take 2 weeks for review after break just to firm up all the word roots from the last 5 lessons before moving on.
  • She completed lesson 11 in Latin Alive except for the quiz and worked on imperfect and future passive indicative verbs in chapter 12.  Her Greek lesson was a review week.

Violet's 6th Grade
  • Violet spent the week working on review lessons in her textbook and workbook as she is nearly finished with the 6A books in math.
  • In grammar, she did some pronoun reviews.  She used "Twas the Night Before Christmas" for our CW model, successfully completed her spelling unit, finished reading Rascal and wrote a book report on it Friday.
  • She also completed a review lesson in LfC C and did some more simple sentence translations for Greek.

Benny's 3rd Grade
  • Benny completed his Miquon Yellow book and worked on multiplying and dividing by 9 in Singapore.
  • In R&S, he did some work with verb tense and number as well as choosing the correct verb for sentences starting with the word there.  He did well on his 5th spelling test and completed some Christmas song copywork.  We finished reading The Book of Three together, and he is about 2/3 through The Cricket in Time Square

The girls read 5 more chapters on the Civil War from Guerber as well as Ulysses S. Grant by O'Shei and William Sherman:  Union General by Remstein and wrote summaries of the contents.

Bennya and I read U. S. Grant:  Horseman and Fighter by Reeder and A Picture Book of Robert E. Lee by Adler.

No science this week in favor of Christmas cookie baking


Henry and I just did the basics this week: reading Christmas books, reviewing letters, and counting (which is now one of his new favorite activities).
