Day 46

Another clear day, not quite as cold as yesterday.

Morning Reading:

  • a few chapters of Despereaux
  • a section from Christ the King on the Spanish Armada
  • more of The Lady of Shalott
  • I also read several stories to Paddy from an anthology, while Kieron made cookies.

Then there was an extended break of a sort while I found some Mad Libs for Kieron and he played them (Language Arts). Then Paddy wanted to do some. I hung around for a while and then I took a bath.

Review/Study with Kieron:

  • MEP chapter 9 -- Areas and Perimeters, 9.1 and 9.2
  • Latin -- answering questions on yesterday's reading, in Latin. Discussed ablative
  • History -- review questions on the Babylonian Captivity
  • Science -- more review -- we've finished Unit 2.
  • Grammar -- "Why the English Language is So Hard to Learn"
  • Handwriting -- I forgot to mention that yesterday so I'll put it on here today.

Thus concludes Week 11.

This weekend my project will have to be writing out some questions I think he will be able to narrate upon.

Aidan worked with his word box and with number matching.

Object of Interest for the Day (Aidan):

This is the garage door light. Aidan has become fascinated with it. He goes out into the (icy cold) garage to admire it. Brendan took the picture for him.
