We strayed from the path a bit. I decided to read D'Aulaire's Benjamin Franklin instead of Exploring American History (which can be a bit dry sometimes.) The kids loved it!
I also love the D'Aulaire books!
They really enjoyed all of the sayings at the bottom of the pages.
In Science, we finished up Lesson 1 in Zoology I. They are loving it! They did the first two notebook pages and then decided that they'd rather do their narrations and drawings in Composition books. I guess they feel that they have too many binders.
(Like that could ever happen.)
I made the covers (PDF Download, if interested) 7" x 9" and printed them on sticker paper.
(Technically they're 8.5 x 11 labels.)
We're trying something a little different for Language Arts.
*B* and *C* are doing Primary Language Lessons. I am going to try to keep them together as long as possible. As soon as one of them needs to slow down, they will separate.
In addition to PLL is daily copywork. *C* copied the Matthew 7:15 Mon-Thu and on Friday wrote it from dictation. *B* copied a poem/prayer that had 4 stanzas. She copied 2 per day Mon & Tue. On Wed & Thu she copied Mt 7:15 and from dictation on Friday.
They both begged me to start using regular wide ruled paper. So midweek (I hate starting anything midweek!) we switched our copywork to regular notebook paper.
*B* on left and *C* on right
(Sorry it's blurry.)
