Life got busy last week. But here’s my weekly report.
Math – he completed 3 lessons in Life of Fred. I can’t tell if he’s liking it or not yet
Writing – he completed Assignment 3 in the IEW Ancient History writing.
Kingfisher – he read the 2 pages and wrote a short essay on cuneiform and one on ziggurats, along with a picture. His writing is pretty good. (I ordered TRISMS this week, we’ll see if that works better)
Vocabulary A – he finished lesson 2 and did very well this time. (He wasn’t really trying with lesson 1)
Grammar – he looked over the list of prepositions and wrote some sentences using them, this week we begin the Easy Grammar Plus workbook
Literature – he says he read Gilgamesh. We’ll go over that again this week
Free reading – he read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and enjoyed it. I explained to his dad that I would like to see him read more just to get the habit of reading and understand that you can start a book with words you don’t understand (either because it’s sci-fi, fantasy, or older) and lots of characters you don’t know and if you stick with it you will start to understand the words (either check a dictionary or use context) and know the characters. His dad asked if I meant the classics. I said “I’ll take care of the classics” I just want him to get some reading under his belt. So this weekend, his dad bought him a book. Pretty cool.
That’s in for now.
