Math: lessons 150 - 152, and test 15. This week, we ended integers and practiced Budgeting. Budgeting usually took us both 2 tries, because we'd forget a number and have to start over. Once, we didn't tithe and that threw off our numbers (that's what happens when a Christian publisher teaches budgeting, lol!)
Handwriting: FINISHED! Hooray! She has GORGEOUS cursive Handwriting Without Tears style writing, but she does not like to use it:) She's a "printer".
History: she finished Samantha 1904 on Monday and began reading Addy.
Photography: she had to take photos of a person doing something interesting. She brought her camera to library storytime and photographed Georgie making a gingerbread house.
|A's photography project. I love how G is looking at the frosting on her finger, sort of studious and surprised. Can you guess what happened next?|
|Gingerbread house making is very serious.|
Math: Metric system (said in a spooky, haunted voice). She did fine. She caught on faster than I thought and wondered why I had such a problem with it.
History, Science, Major Life Accomplishment: she is working through the grown-up version, English translation of The Odyssey. Her choice, not mine. Yup. You go, girl!
Grammar: we started back on Grammar, and did 2 review lessons: identified subject, verb, and prepositional phrases.
CC Week 7: covered India, Hinduism, Buddhism, Latin noun endings 3rd declension (singular & plural), more prepositions, skip counting 13s, and timeline from Jesus through India's Gupta Dynasty (we looove saying "Gupta". Gupta, gupta, gupta...). We had a friend over on Wednesday and worked through the Week 7 material. The big kids all did fantastic. Little Georgie did terrible. She cried, screamed, whined, and basically drowned out everything the big kids were trying to do.
There are a few things in life that I think to myself "surely, it isn't *that* bad, right? Maybe I'm just remembering it much worse than it really was". And then, I try again and think, "yup, that was the worst thing I have ever experienced". School and clothing shopping with a 3yo are those two things in my life.
Piano: had piano lessons this week.
Monday: library storytime.
Tuesday: A was a Mom's Helper. Went shopping for cookie and cake stuff.
Wednesday: friend joined us for CC at my house. AWANA. Z officially finished her book, hooray!
Thursday: Soloist practice (kids are in a musical this Sunday). Shopping for clothing for the musical. Shopping for snacks for the musical. Baking cakes and cookies for co-op committments. Then, we met friends at the library for (more) gingerbread house making.
Friday: full day of co-op, then playdate at friend's house
Saturday: all day dress rehearsal
