CURRENT EVENTS: We read about Alex Jaeger, an 11 year old who began college January 14th.


*T* began Singapore Primary Math 1A. He did workbook exercises 1-4 and Extra Practice exercises 1-2.

*C* did exercises 56-62 and reviews 6&7 to FINISH Singapore 2A.

*B* started learning about bar models in 3A this week. We worked through the HIG pages 34-38 and all corresponding text and workbook pages. She also did Extra Practice exercise 1C #'s 1-5. I'm so proud of her! She's doing so well since I've been using the HIG activities.


*T* finished "n" and "j" in Get Set for the Code.

*C* did lessons 1-3 in Primary Language Lessons.

*B* did lessons 1-8. I'm hoping that she'll have it finished by August or September so that we can start Intermediate Language Lessons.
