This was our line up for this week, and we've managed to achieve a good chunk of it:
Daisy has 1 more lesson to complete in her AAS book, and Bobs has 3 in his.
They are aiming to have those done tomorrow as mastered, and completed, lesson books generate take out pizza for tea.
(which ds calls Grandma because RnS has a very old fashioned flavour.)
Complete a lesson each day (4 each this week).
Both children like these grammar texts.
Writing With Skill
I think Bobs is doing very well with this writing curriculum, which he's dubbed Writing that Kills (Sorry Susan ☺)
I wonder if perhaps some of the secret to the success for him is that we are purposely keeping the lesson times shorter, no more than 40 mins, and that seems to ensure that the writing he generates is "fresher". We just stop if it looks like the lesson is going to become an epic one, he stops at a place that is comfortable for him to pick it up again, the next day.
for the next 4 weeks: When the Roll is Called up Yonder
for the next 4 weeks: Antonin Dvorak
Unit 9 (1841-1904)
We're hoping, Daisy & I, to camp down around some Russian Fairy Tales and Chinese Tales, I said Japanese somewhere else on the web ... those come later.
SOTW4 chapts 13 & 14
Builders of NZ pgs 128-131
(with our time focus being 1889-1896 and zeroing in on Russia and New Zealand)
Mary Slessor SL5 (start)
Helen Keller R/A 3/4 (Daisy to complete)
The Terrible Wave R4 (Daisy - next reader .. might read this with her)
The Big Wave R5 (Bobs)
Bobs is enjoying reading all the sequels to Wolves of Willoughby Chase (which is now a discontinued SL Core F title. Thank goodness Susan Bauer includes lessons on it in Writing With Skill or I may have just ignored that book.)
It's nice to see him reading something other than non-fiction for free reading!!
Daisy's audio is The Wizard in Oz (again)
Her free reader (nearly finished) is Elsie at Roselands, then she'll start Roller Skates (another discontinued SL title).
