'Cause First Lego League is on our minds!
Need an ultimate unit or STEM study? FLL could be what you are looking for!
School this week.Flower is over her frustration with fractions, thanks to a Kumon book. Took a week's break from MME to get the concepts down. Cub is crusing in Saxon Alg 1/2 . Perplexors and Complete a Sketch continue to be the icing on every one's math cake. Feeche is diligently plodding through pre calc and physics. Thank-you, Lord, for Sarah! (patient math tutor extraordinaire!).
Xian Studies IV- reading through Genesis together. Love the enthusiasm and the discussions! .
D'Aulaires Greek Myths on CD. Not that we haven't loved the book version into near dog-eared oblivion. I'm saving Amer Hx for Spring semester- we have too much this fall to do it justice.
State and World Geography, along with map work for Ancient Men -- Flower is in Map Heaven.
Writing With Skill- skipped to lesson 27 with the class (1/2 of whom were in the class last spring). We are sort of hitting a groove again. Love the program- so rich and sequential. It continues to test my wimpy grammar muscles.
The Divine Comedy. Total nerd lit love. Feeche and I are basking in Dante's brilliance.
*4*Memory work. We are doing bits here and there, but the main focus this year is poetry. Horatius at the Bridge for the youngers and POL for Feeche. Flower and Cub are at stanza 7 and freaked this week when they realized there were 70 stanzas in total. Once I scrapped them off the porch ceiling, they went right from Horatius to memorizing FLL Core Values.
50#'s of tomatoes on our counter have been turned into ruby red gastronomical delight!
Reading The Single Shard as part of Ana's World Geo class at Tutoring Center.
One of my fellow Hive bibliophiles sent me Howatches's The Rich are Different (thanks, Diane!) and I still have recommends from sweet Shari. I haven't read much since school started except Made By Hand. Not nearly as compelling as Crunchy Con even though we are die-hard DIYer's.
