Mid-Year Changes

At the beginning of the school year, *B* was using LLATL Yellow for Language Arts. I didn't feel that she was "getting it" so we dropped it and started PLL. Lately she's been dredding PLL and begging to start LLATL again. Language Arts is now one of her favorite subjects!
For math she had been using BJU Math 3. It just hasn't been enough. I bought the extra workbooks, but it's just not sinking in. The *plan* has always been to start Saxon 5/4 in 4th grade. I figured we'd just go ahead and switch to Saxon 3 now. (I don't know why I didn't just start with Saxon K. DUH!!) She is completing Math Mammoth Multiplication 1 and Intro to Fractions, then we'll start with the 2nd workbook of Saxon 3. 

History:
Read 1/2 of Chapter 19: The War of 1812, from A Child's Story of America.

Latin:
*B* & *C* - Latin's Not So Tough 1: X, Y, Z

Language Arts:
*B* - LLATL Yellow Lesson 9 focussed on writing a friendly letter.
*C* - nothing this week, since we've stopped PLL I don't know what to do!
*T* - Plaid Phonics K, Letter Mm, reviewed Ss & Tt

Math:
*B* - Math Mammoth Multiplication 1 (Many Times the Same Group, Multiplication and Addition, Multiplication as an Array) and Intro to Fractions (Dividing into Two Parts - Halves)
*C* - Horizons Math 2, Tests 4, 5, & 6.
*T* - worked on Number Recognition

That's about it. It'll be a few weeks before I'm feeling better, so we're just doing what we can!

  1. Looks like a productive week, especially considering the morning sickness. Mid-year changes seem pretty common around here too. It's been long enough to get a feel for whether it's really working or not.
