This week in random thoughts:
After way too much time researching, I decided that CC should read The Chronicles of Narnia in publication order and not in chronological order.
- 1950: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
- 1951: Prince Caspian
- 1952: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
- 1953: The Silver Chair
- 1954: The Horse and His Boy
- 1955: The Magician's Nephew
- 1956: The Last Battle
LB spent Monday morning creating comics online while CC spent Monday morning designing an experiment with Keva blocks and ping-pong balls.
I've noticed that at least once a week my girls will play school. I'm trying to figure out what that means.
BB's classes are finally resuming next week. They've been canceled since the earthquake.
I've been listening to SWB's lectures on writing and history. It sounds so much more do able than what I had picked up from reading TWTM.
We've been playing with words this week - try having a conversation without verbs or without pronouns. It is lots of fun.
We're off to the park this afternoon with friends. I've missed park days this winter.
Daily work this week:
For LB daily : 2 pages of Miquon or two pages from BJU math, 3 pages from the Kumon book of numbers 1-70 (dot-to-dots are big this week), 2 pages from ETC2, and a page from McGuffy's Primer
For CC daily: a page of copywork from her memory (still doing poems she knows from IEW linguistic dev.), a lesson from Fred (one day she got "caught up" in the lessons and did 4 chapters), a chapter from SOTW2 (yes, we are going backwards in time), a weapon of mass destruction, reading from the SL ALT7 box, and free reading for at least an hour
They also have a spelling test at the end of the week, and I read to them daily for at least an hour.
135 days complete so far.
