- Wind in the Willows - Readaloud with narration
- Abraham Lincoln - W read a page to me
- Five Children & It - Readaloud, no narration
- Teaching Textbooks Quiz - W took another math quiz. It had 25 questions which included fractions, area, perimeter, rounding to the thousands, subtraction with borrowing, 4-digit addition, and types of triangles. He missed only one.
- Copywork - W asked to do this. He copied the first half of a poem into his notebook and used cursive. He was so proud of how nice he writes, that he even signed it when he was done, lol.
- An Island Story - 2 stories on King Edward. We're in the Middle Ages - right around year 1200.
- Spelling Skills - This week he's doing words with the Long E sound (e.g. reason, between, scream, squeeze). Today's exercise was to proofread a paragraph, circling spelling mistakes and adding missing punctuation and missing words. He found all the mistakes. I was so pleased to see that he can recognize misspelled words and know the correct spelling - except for 1 where he knew it was misspelled, but wasn't sure of the right spelling. This kind of exercise is so difficult when you have issues with reading.
In other news, J is doing great in high school. She loves it so much. It's tough. Her schedule is grueling. She's still dancing at her studio and doing a work study there on Saturdays. With all of that, she gets her homework, studying, and projects done without issue. She's pulling top grades - she even has a 90 average in French. It's been so wonderful for her. Homeschooling allowed and nurtured so much of J's independence, self-sufficiency, self-esteem, and the confidence that she can accomplish and achieve anything. Her amazing high school gives her the platform to use these skills. It's working out better than I could have imagined.
