Week 20 Hello World

This week I started with a plan.  I'm not sure if it helped or hurt...

Books this Week:
Trumpet of the Swan, Fox in Socks, Of Courage Undaunted, HP5, I Can Read with My Eyes Shut, If You Grew up with George Washington, Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python, Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction, What Happens to a Hamburger, On Noah's Ark, The Digging-est Dog 

This week is a scorecard.

Poems Memorized by both girls!
Stopping by the Woods on A Snowy Evening

Computer programs written by CC: 1!!!!  With a variable and some functions, CC was able to ask for a name and repeat it on the computer with a great big "Hello World!"  She is now on a well-worn path to being a computer programmer.  :)   Python is a terrific language, and it is nice to remember that I am, in fact, a computer programmer, and I can teach my kids something that I am good at.

Read CW Homer and decided that it would be perfect for CC, but decided to do Paragraph Book 1 first  since I have it on the way, and I don't have Harvey's or the diagramming book.

Modern Marvels: The Manhatten Project, History Detectives, Mythbusters, made and mailed Valentine origami frogs for cousins, made tools for a goldsmith out of Model Magic inspired by The Goldent Goblet,
