Week 17 Highlights

MFW Blog Roll

December 7-11, 2009

MEMORY: They worked on Commandments 7 & 8. You shall not commit adultery, and You shall not steal.

Read pages 16-37 about Zeus and Hera.

Read about Gods and Goddesses, Temples Worship and Festivals, Oracles and Mystery Cults, and Death and the Underworld.

BIBLE:*B* started reading Acts and *C* is still working on John.

SCIENCE: Lesson 15 was about Monotremes and Marsupials. We read a few sections of books we own about the Platypus, Koala, Kangaroo, Echidna (Spiny Anteater), and Opossum.

LATIN: *B* and *C* completed lesson 7.

FRENCH: Started our vocabulary with bonjour, bon nuit and je t'adore.


*T* completed lessons 27, 28 & 29.

*C* did exercises 52-55.

*B* and I worked through pages 28-30 of 3A HIG and corresponding text/workbook pages. She also did Mental Math 1-6.


*T* did Explode the Code B pages 15-28, /s/.

*C* and *B* will start Primary Language Lessons after the holidays. I really do love LLATL, but it's really hard to get done. There are 5 days worth of work for a lesson and (like MFW) I just feel so behind when we don't get it all done. PLL is set up as lessons so if we only get 2 or 3 done I won't feel behind.
(I didn't link this one to Amazon because it had one of those ridiculously high prices.)


  1. Are your children enjoying D'Aulaires Myths? My daughter is doing ancients this year and I keep looking at but can't decide whether to buy or not.

    Sounds like a fun and interesting week. Thanks for sharing.

  2. They are enjoying the myths. They keep begging me to read more but I won't. :)

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful week :)

    Thank you for sharing and I think your Christmas tree is lovely!

    Merry Christmas!

sweet to the taste and health to the body.
