Week 18 - The Mid-point at Last!
In algebra this week, he completed his homework for the week and also had a test to complete. We continued working with fractions and decimals in Russian Math at home.
For Language Arts, he continued with vocab and grammar. Memory work in grammar includes prepositions, some linking verbs, and helping verbs. He completed written work for his outside class regarding the book After the Dancing Days. She sent a grade card for his first semester's work and he was happy with that (I wish she graded harder....)
He completed two lessons in Latin, and I forgot to give him his quiz today! He completed another chapter in Greek and some grammar work in Spanish, in addition to his outside class. Memory work in these subjects includes, of course, his vocabulary (as well as alphabet in Greek) and some declensions in Latin and Greek.
He finished up reading some Asian stories from last week:
He completed the chapter on electricity in the Tiner chemistry book, since we're currently reading about Benjamin Franklin and he also began a book about Franklin and his electrical experiments.
He started reading through a middle school chemistry text entitled Changes in Matter (Mary Atwater, et al - Macmillan/McGraw Hill) and constructing an activity log for the projects and experiments included in it. He did the first chapter this week.
We read chapter 6 and half of chapter 7 in Friendly Chemistry, played some of the games that go along with the chapters, and he completed an orbital notation exercise.
Art class was cancelled due to a snow storm but piano work continued. He's going to participate in a themed recital in March regarding Hollywood Hits from musicals, movies, etc. so he's starting to get prepared for that. He participated in a review in his group guitar class.
Co-op was able to start this week, so he was involved in a new PE class as well as his soccer activities. We didn't go to his clinic on Tuesday night due to the snow storm that was in progress at the time....
I'm happy to officially be starting our second half next week!
