Week 20 Highlights

Photobucket

February 1-6, 2010

More about Joseph this week. Genesis 43-46 and corresponding pages from Journey Through the Bible.

First we read, "After the Heroic Age," from Young Folks' History of Greece by Charlotte Yonge. In theory it was a good idea, but quite honestly it was a little hard to follow. Maybe I was tired or something. So we explored Ancient Greeks on the BBC website and that reviewed a lot of what was just read. Then, from Famous Men of Greece, we read "Lycurgus" (Sparta) and "Draco & Solon" (Athens). To help summarize the two city-states we read from Story of the World v1, chapter 22. We also looked at corresponding pages from Usborne's Greeks.

Nothing this week. We are getting ready to start a unit on birds.

The Iliad for Boys and Girls by Alfred Church. We listened to chapters 1-6.
Cautionary Tales for Children by Hilaire Belloc . We read the intro and the first chapter.
Photobucket
We reviewed the first story of Minimus chapter 1.
Photobucket
Greek Alphabet Code Cracker by Dr. Christopher Perrin. We completed Unit 1 which is basically an overview or introduction to the alphabeta.

*T* began Go For the Code this week. He worked on the letter c.

*T* learned about number bonds this week. He got it a lot easier than I thought he would.
1A: exercises 7-10

*C* was supposed to learn mental addition strategies, but he said, "Mommy I already do that when I add numbers." So I guess it was more of a review. :)
2B: Unit 7, exercises 4-7

*B* did word problems using bar models.
3A: Unit 2, exercises 9 & 10

  1. For the hopelessly inept technophobe, how does one download to an MP3 player and create a zip file? I like the idea of audio story telling, but I am at a loss as how to do this. Any insight? Wow! You have your hands full with the kids. You seem like you get a lot done. Congratulations.

  2. I have no idea. I don't own an MP3 player. I downloaded it to my computer and burned it to a CD so that we could listen to it in the car on errand day.

    Thank You!! :)

  3. Thanks for including all the links. What version of PLL are you using and how do you like it?

  4. I'm using the Hillside Edition. I really like how it's put together. First of all, it's spiral bound so it lays flat without fighting with it. Secondly, most of the pictures are in color and that's nice.

    It's working out very well for us.
