Here is what we did this week:
Latin- Completed the chapter on Latin adverbs and worked on memorizing the table blessing in Latin.
Language Arts- Narration and Dictation from WWE book.
Narration from History Reading
We read 'Eats, Shoots, and Leaves' by Lynne Truss and discussed the importance of proper punctuation.
We took the week off from Grammar Island, and All About Spelling.
They had to show me they could draw the lines of lattitude from memory and label them. They are now working on adding Africa in it's proper place.
We are studying about the English colonization of the United States. Our read-aloud for the week is:
Raleigh's Page by Alan Armstrong.
The boys are really enjoying this book. We started reading this over the weekend, so when we started reading about Sir Walter Raleigh in our SOTW book the boys recognized the names of Raleigh's peers, and remembered a lot about Queen Elizabeth.
Farm Boy got mad at me when I read in SOTW about how Raleigh was imprisoned and eventually beheaded. He said, "Mom, you ruined the book for me!" Ooops, I guess I could have waited on that little fact until we finished 'Raleigh's Page'.
We also downloaded and listened to the chapters on Sir Walter Raleigh from The Awakening of Europe by M.B.Synge.
Math Mammoth- J-Straco worked on multi-digit multiplication
Farm Boy worked on measuring and adding fractions
