These blog posts are helpful because they remind me that my kids are learning things even when it didn’t feel like it so much during the week.
History – Late 19th century, Gilded Age, Unions. I forgot to give him comprehension questions this week, but we had a nice discussion that made it clear that he has been reading and understanding the significance of the events.
Literature – Out of the Dust.
Bible – BibleMesh. He’s learning about the early years of the church and the book of Acts. Good stuff.
Science – Oceans, currents, reefs.
Grammar – nouns, plural nouns
Writing – Wrote a book review on Artemis Fowl
Math – Assessment this week.
Music – Band (going to see The Lion King at the PAC next week), playing electric guitar in Sunday morning church, leading youth band.
Social Science – Reading her Psychology books. She wasn’t thrilled with the sections about research and the scientific method, but is happier with the section on cognition.
Literature – Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass
Japanese – More Rosetta Stone
Math – Lots and lots of functions, parabolas
Music – Practicing piano for her recital.
Dance – Taught a tap class this week!! Otherwise, continuing to take tap and assist in ballet. She’s planning to start choreographing her senior piece next week.
This does make me feel a little better. They are learning things. Deep sigh.
