While Moose had his break/exams week this week, Peanut continued on with her lessons.
She and Moose have informed me that next school year, they want to be able to have break week at the same time. Fair enough. I really like the staggered beginnings because I feel like it gives me a nice ease-in to things, but I know it has been sometimes distracting for the non-break week student.
Anyways, we made it through yet another week of back to back to back snowstorms, cabin fever, and the beginning of Lent.
We made progress in Phonetic Zoo and I decided to drop using high frequency words as Peanut has been improving considerably with her spelling.
She had a math test and moved on to the next chapter in Math Mammoth.
We read more about Abigail Adams, and compared John Adams to Benjamin Franklin.
We also discussed whether or not Robert Louis Stevenson uses drinking (of alcohol) as a way of signaling about the character of the characters in the book Kidnapped.
She’s reading more and more books, her favorite authors are Mary Pope Osborne and Caryll Houselander.
She made two needle-felt cats and gave one to her friend. She continues to learn valuable drawing skills from her friend.
We’re in the final stretch for Moose and soon we’ll be wrapping up term 2 for Peanut. Books for the next school year are starting to arrive, they’re being shelved until this year is done. But both kids are getting excited, seeing what is waiting for them in the future.
