Weekly Review, Week 21, 2011-2012

Tues: MI History.  Wed: AWANA.  Fri: Co-op.  Sat: Kings Kids musical practice

A:
In math, she finished the first 10 practice story problems from Singapore's Challenging Word Problems 3.  She began the Challenging section of story problems and did not like it.  In Horizons Math 5 book 2, she did Lesson 126 Estimation of Decimals, Lesson 127 Addition of Decimals...and then we skipped a few lessons and jumped to Test 13 (she scored very high), and finished the week with Lesson 131 Multiplying Decimals.  She got a few wrong on her test with Ratios - she is really struggling with *reading* the problem, lol.  If she would just stop, read, and think about it first, she'd get them all right.  In AWANA, she finished all of Discovery 6 (she needs to get through 7 and 8 before she is done for the year, and each discovery has 7 sections - so 14 left before she is done! yay!)  In Spelling, she did Days 74-80.  She worked on Encyclopedia J-K.  She practiced piano and codecademy.  In codecademy, she got through the first Lesson (broken into 8 exercises, and those exercises have about 4 lessons).  She got stuck several times, often finding her own way out or experimenting with it.  She had to help me through a few lessons.

Z:
In Math, I'm making her use 2 math programs.  I know, I'm mean.  I want her to see those numbers in different ways, so she can understand different ways of presentation.  She did the first 3 exercises in Singapore Primary Math 3a, which was place value.  In Horizons 3 book 2, she is mastering division problems with remainders (ex: 34 / 7) and getting very good at them!  She also caught on to reducing fractions this week.  Those are 2 big topics and I'm pretty happy with that.  She did lessons 116-119.  In Spelling, she did days 62-67.  She did Encyclopedia H.  She practiced piano and codecademy.  In codecademy, she is in the middle of if/else statement lessons.

Both:  They attended the Michigan History class (12 week class that meets weekly), and completed their homework.  They read chapters 27 & 28 in Exploring American History (CLP).  They'll have co-op on Friday.
