I feel like we got very little done this week. I tried to continue through packing, but we are getting down to the wire so I've had to suspend all school until we get to the new house. I'll have my kids finish reading our literature/history selection, but that's it.
The kids completed their outlines and worked on their rough drafts for a new assignment: medicine in colonial times. They worked on the first two paragraphs. We'll finish the third after we move.
Mika worked on Life of Fred. She ran into difficulty with Least Common Multiples so I had to help her out with it. Sam worked on a lesson about the standard equation of a line. He learned the formula for the standard equation of a line. He also learned how to convert an equation from y-intercept to standard and vice versa.
The only history they completed this week was reading The Journal of Jasper Jonathan Pierce. I'll have them continue reading this book next week because I want them to finish it before we have to return it to the library before the move.
Didn't happen. I was hoping to finish our chapter on titration but we just didn't get to it. All we need to do is the experiment, review, and test so maybe we'll find a day to fit it in next week if packing goes well this weekend.
They both worked on their Rosetta Stone a little bit, but not every day like usual. Sam is stuck on a screen. Korean gets so much harder when you have as many different syllables in a sentence as Korean has. Mika's doing fine with Spanish.
We completed a project using chalk pastels. It was messy! Mika wasn't too thrilled with the mess factor but managed to do it anyway.
Here they are working on their projects.
This is Mika's cityscape. I love her road along the bottom.
Sam had fun with different window shapes.
Later, I helped Josh do his own picture. After putting in a few basic building shapes, he picked chalk colors and colored them. Then he told me what color he wanted his windows and how many he wanted for each building.
Of course, I completed one too.
And finally, there's real life which includes a lot of packing and disassembling.
