Weekly Review, Week 23, 2011-2012

Insane week.  Would not want to repeat it.
Monday: uneventful.  Tuesday:  called in for jury duty, helluva day, massive headache, MI History right afterwords.  Glad it's over.  Wednesday: AWANA - A finished her book woohoo! Thursday: make-up dr appt day for the appt I had to cancel on Tuesday.  Friday: Co-op.  In between times, we finished dh's 2nd novel, got the cover art made, and the novel published.  Phew!  I'm really happy with the results!

This week didn't leave me much time for planning or teaching.  Luckily, dh makes an amazing homeschool dad, and kept the earth revolving.  Here's what we accomplished:

A:
Finished 10 sections, completing her AWANA book for the year, and for the rest of her life.  Grade 6 is the last year that our church runs the official program, although students can choose to go further with self-study.  She really didn't want to do the AWANA program, so we said she didn't have to go beyond 6th gr.  Guess I'll need to come up with another Bible program for her next year.  I'm very proud of her for working so hard, even though it wasn't something she wanted to do.

In Math,  she did lesson 137 Percent as Fraction, 138 Fraction as Percent, 139 Finding Percent of a Number, and 140 Problem Solving with Percent.  She also did Challenging Word Problems, although she's taken to it independently, and I should check in and see how she is solving them.

In Spelling, she completed days 83-85 (I think).  In History, she read ch 31 Capt Sutter, and part of 32 Abraham Lincoln (very long chapter).  She also completed Week 4 of MI History.  She continued J-K encyclopedia and Codecademy, although some days she skipped because she's ahead of me and needs help.

Z:
She passed 4 sections in AWANA and has 14 sections left total for the end of the year. 

In Math, she completed lessons 124, 125, 126, and 127.  I did not give her any Singapore to work on.  She learned the steps for long division with problems such as 54/3 (goes in evenly without a remainder, but she needs to divide the first number, subtract, bring down, etc.)  She also practiced more reducing fractions.  Those two topics are just "hand holding" topics that take awhile to get, but she's off to a great start!

In Spelling, she did days 72 & 73.  She read ch 31 Capt Sutter, and the beginnings of ch 32 Abraham Lincoln for History.  She also did Week 4 of MI History.  She continued H encyclopedia, and is working through "Heart", complete with gross pictures.  She did Codecademy. 

Our weekend was fantastic though -
The older girls had a 5 hour practice for the church musical.  The little one spent a few hours with Grandpa and Grandma.  I went to lunch with dh.  Fun was had by all.
