Day 97


  • Another page of Plutarch -- Romulus
  • 1 chapter of Johny Tremain while exercising
  • George Washington's World
  • Tennyson -- Sea Fairies
  • Tales from Shakespeare -- Winter's Tale
  • Math on Computer (Algebra)
  • Weekly Jobs
  • We discussed Romulus, and he narrated GWW and AWT


  • Reading (Henry and Mudge go to the Sea, other incidental reading)
  • MCP Math A -- I was going to have him do a page of addition but instead he did a whole bunch of pages through the book -- I'm not really sure if there's much in there he doesn't know.
  • Computer Addition -- a fishing game -- he made it through all three levels with only a bit of help from Kieron.
  • Island Story -- chapter 2, Coming of the Romans -- he was a bit distracted.
  • Bible Story -- Tower of Babel -- read and discussed.
  • Paddle to the Sea -- 3 chapters since we were at an exciting part
  • 2 more Aesop's Fables


  • all this weekend and today he has been working on the SWR flash cards I made for him and has actually mastered several of them. He really enjoys doing these.
  • He worked on the orange Miquon Math book
  • He had a "reading lesson" where I wrote out a story and we read it.
  • Aidan and Paddy both worked on typing in all the words from the VTech phonics board and I printed out their accomplishment.

Today we went to the library and got "Babe". I was telling Paddy about it after we read about Moses the Kitten and how he was brought up by pigs. So Kieron said our little library had it and he had never watched it, so they are watching it now since it is rainy and slushy outside.

Also, I did a lot of reading aloud to Paddy this weekend:

  • Toads and Diamonds by Charles Perrault
  • The Swan Maiden by Howard Pyle
  • Snow White and Rose Red by the Grimm Brothers
  • Adventures of Pinocchio (an excerpt)
  • A Bird Came Downt he Walk (by Emily Dickinson)
  • Bingo has an Enemy (a short poem)
  • The Blind Men and the Elephant (the version in rhyme)
  • The Thief of Cathay
  • A child's book of Old Testaments stories
  • Nursery rhymes
  • Sylvester and the Magic Pebbles
  • Let's Talk About.... Disobeying (I've read this to him several times).
