Week 30 Oh Frabjous Day

The poem this week is Charge of the Light Brigade

 The Story of Ferdinand, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Islands of the Blessed, A Grassland HabitatMister Dog, Winnie the Pooh, The Saggy Baggy Elephant,

SOTW2, Life of Fred Fractions, IEW Poetry, Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction, Perplexors C, ClassiQuest Biology, Miquon Orange, Phonics Pathways, Explode the Code 2, Elemental Science Biology

CC's daily work right now consists of a lesson of math, a perplexor, a review of poetry learned so far, copy from either the book or memory at least 8 lines of the poem being memorized, a page of grammar, a chapter of SOTW2 and a written summary of the chapter.  After her daily work she is free to make weapons of mass destruction, program, read, research, or play.  She has a weekly science class with her friend using Classiquest Biology.

LB's daily work right now is 2 pages of Miquon, 2 pages of ETC, and a lesson from Phonics Pathways.  She and daddy do science a couple of times a week using Elemental Science Biology.

CC told me this week that sometimes she feels like she's teaching herself.  We were sitting at the table; she was doing her work, and I was working.  I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, but it is what is working for us.

LB has been practicing her poem to perform at school next week, but she's also been picking up pieces of poems that CC has been working on.  We've a good mix of Jabberwocky, The Duke of Plaza Torro, The Spider and the Fly, Trees, Shoes, and The Charge of the Light Brigade being recited around here all day, every day. Callooh! Callay! "Canons to the right of them" said the spider to the fly, but only God can make a tree.

At their enrichment school this week, LB made paper and CC cooked marshmallows in a solar oven. 

We're taking the day off Friday.  The girls are eating pancakes and watching episodes of Planet Earth.  CC's science lab partner is out of town for a long weekend.  I'm still working today, so we aren't in full holiday mode.

BB posted a lot of pictures on his blog from his trip to the Japanese countryside.
