Yay! We made it through Week 12! Next week, we are taking a one-week break:)
A: finished through lesson 93 in Math, and focused on Equivalent Fractions and Common Factors/Greatest Common Factor. She finished through Day 49 in Spelling. Note to self: she is ready to bounce back into doing 2 lists per day when we start back. Grammar covered contractions that involve both noun and verb (I'll = I [pronoun] and will [verb]). She has been practicing typing, although we stopped that by Wednesday, in favor of NaNoWriMo.
Z: finished through lesson 88, which began Mixed Numbers and has been working on Perimeter. She finished through day 42 in Spelling (-ove and -ow words). She began typing lessons. For Grammar, she learned about verbs, including states of being (yeah, that's a tough one...)
Both: We did History Pockets, Pocket #3 with George Washington crossing the Delaware, and the Declaration of Independence. The girls began writing a novel for NaNoWriMo. They also began a new Daddy-given assignment: Encyclopedia. Each day, they read 3 pages from an encyclopedia, and then write 1 sentence for every entry. Some days they have a lot of writing to do, and some days very little.
Sidenote: our science project from a few weeks ago involved growing mold on bread. We *still* do not have mold on our bread. I've tried re-watering the thing. A tried wrapping it in a blanket and sticking it in the sun. We have some really mold resistant bread!
Friday is co-op.
