Religion - Of course we started with our most important subject. We continued practicing the first verse of "Joseph Smith's First Prayer" and reviewed scriptures we learned last year and the year before. We read some stories from Joseph Smith's childhood and talked about the faith that Joseph and Lucy Smith had even before the First Vision.
Math - Racer worked on rounding to the nearest ten and he got all his problems correct. Way to go! There were only two he had questions on. Chicklette was reviewing adding ones, tens, twos and twenties and greater than/less than. She is also getting better at writing out numbers in words.
Physics - Racer finished his math work early so he played with Triominos while Chicklette continued her practice page. She still needs some redirection and work on concentration. Once she was finished we looked in our Gadgets and Gizmos book to see what we would do for our hovercraft project. We couldn't find any plastic bowls that we could cut up so we are going to try using foam cups instead. After I go to the Dollar Store, we will try plastic bowls. We learned that hovercrafts float over a cushion of air to reduce drag and friction.
Latin - All we had to do today was listen to the CD of our Prima Latina program. We reviewed our five vocabulary words with their definitions.
Finally it was lunchtime. It felt like a long time since breakfast. Everyone ate and had a little bit more than an hour to unwind. When we were done, it was back to handwriting for Chicklette and Writing with Ease for both Chicklette and Racer. Chicklette practiced the letter z for her cursive. While Racer and I did dictation with two sentences from Hansel and Gretel, I made chocolate custard. Then Chicklette and I did a narration exercise with a vignette from Little House in the Big Woods.
And that ended our school day.
