Memory Work is going wonderfully! We've memorized the first four poems in Linguistic Development, worked through the first chapter in Lyrical Life Science Human Body, learned the definitions of the first nine words in Vocabulary Cartoons, reviewed our seven times tables, and retained Moses 1:39.
Literature is going well. E practiced annotating with The Ransom of Red Chief. Together for fun, we annotated Marginalia by Billy Collins. And for free-reading, E read Inkheart. E-R and I-E are finishing The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E Frankweiler over the weekend. E-R's free-read Titan's Curse, and I-E's was the sixth book in The Series of Unfortuntant Events.
Rod and Staff covered more information on sentences---clauses, fragments, and prepositional phrases within the subject. Easy peasey so far!
Math reviewed dividing by double digit numbers for E-R and I-E. E is almost finished with his pre-algebra. Algebra is waiting for him next week!
In History we studied the government of the Roman Republic. We added info to our timelines, outlined sections of our book, and rewrote those sections.
Art this week was about balance. First we measured our own faces and where our features fell on our faces. Then we practiced drawing those same dimensions. Next, we experimented with different dimensions. It was quite enjoyable.
