Math (BJU): learned how to figure the area of a room
Science (Exploring Creation with Astronomy): started a new unit on the moon. JK cut out the various phases of the moon and pasted them into her notebook. This was not even an assignment. I love it when she does stuff on her own.
Language Arts (LLATL, Spelling Power, Italic Handwriting): worked on the poetry unit. She looked up two poems about animals then copied and illustrated them. We started Spelling Power. Today I just did the testing to determine which level she should start. Tomorrow will begin the daily tests. I remember doing this with JL and JM. We had a lot of fun because I always made up silly sentences for the spelling words.
We started our usual custom of playing a game while we eat lunch. Today it was Phase Ten. Since that is such a long game, we just played until someone reached phase four–me! That was very unusual. I don’t normally win that game!
That was it for today. Tonight I need to enter my lesson plans into Homeschool Tracker. I’m thinking about upgrading to the Plus software but haven’t made up my mind yet. The free one certainly is doing a good job but I like some of the features on the upgrade.
