Religion - Racer read the religion page to Chicklette and Turtle and helped Chicklette color in her map. It's always nice when he willingly helps her.
Math - Math got done today and that's all I can say about it because they were so quick at it.
Latin - The assignment for today was flashcards and we got those checked off too.
Library - We hit the library today, my favorite time of the week. I think Chicklette and Turtle divested the library of all their superhero books. In fact, as we were driving home, they realized that they had checked out an identical book. I picked up a bunch of books too. I was looking for a vegetarian cookbook. I don't want to be vegetarian, but I think we need more vegetables on our table. As I was browsing the shelves, looking for a vegetarian cookbook and trying to keep the Bubbers from disturbing the library too much, I kept throwing books in my bag that looked interesting.
After lunch, we moved on to. . .
Physics - We tried balancing lots of different objects and discussed why we could balance some and not others and why it was easier to balance objects in one direction, but not another. Later today, Racer and I worked on his scientist biography report. He printed it out and we went over what needed to be improved and how the formatting needed to be changed in order to look better. He's not happy about needing to write more, but he didn't throw a fit about it like he did a few months ago.
History - One of the history books I wanted hasn't come in to the library yet, but we finished up talking about Hawaii and did all our timeline memorization that we have learned so far. Yesterday we also listened to a couple songs about the humuhumunukunukuapoa'a. We also read a section of If You Traveled West in a Covered Wagon.
Spelling - Racer did his sentences today and he assured me that he started them a differently. Chicklette and I did her lesson and discussed the job of Silent E. I made sure she knew all the words for her spelling this week and she did her sentences too.
Writing with Ease - Racer had dictation today and he did it with ease. Then we discussed an adverb in the sentence and talked about what adjective it modified. Chicklette and I read a story and she answered all the questions but one perfectly and in complete sentences. Racer also did a decent job on his Daily 6-trait Writing.
Chicklette practiced reading a book to me today. After we were done, she told me that Level 1 books were too easy for her and she needed something harder. I didn't tell her, because I didn't think about it, but I am using the easier level books to help build reading fluency. I know she can read Level 2 books, but she struggles with it so when she is reading to me, I want to her to be able to just read. I have lots of harder books that she can pick up and read if she would like to.
