Diligence does not rely on talent, but employs commitment, industry, and perseverance to transform vision into reality.
And our favorite diligence quote so far—Diligence is the mother of Good Luck! Benjamin Franklin.As a family we took this quiz:
After taking the quiz, we decided procrastination is really something we all struggle with. Procrastination is something we are all working on. Self motivation was also discussed and is something we are working on individually.
And I did see that diligence translate into our school work. And I worked hard on overcoming procrastination when it came to putting away laundry!
I-E and E-R reviewed the chapter on nouns this week before taking the chapter test. In Mega words they covered closed and silent-e syllables. For literature, they read through I Am David, so we can start analyzing this coming week. For writing, we started Essay Voyage. And in math, review of rates was on the schedule.
E-R and I-E applied and were accepted to produce, direct, and preform a preshow scene. Although not a huge deal, it has caused me to really think about our goals and adjust our schedules.
Merry’s excellent post at Hope for Homeschool about prioritizing for passions has given me a lot to think about. I-E has expressed a desire to pursue a career in the movies—specially screenwriting. I know next to nothing about preparing for anything like this. So for now, I have lots to think about and no quick answers.
But for now, I’ve decided to forego history this month. Instead, our afternoons will be filled with Shakespeare.
