I got granola done this morning too, but I overcooked it and didn't put enough syrup on it so it's not my best attempt. I'll have to look at the recipe more closely the next time that I make it. I was kind of going on memory and trying to combine two separate recipes. It's passable, but only just. Enjoy these pictures of what I am proud of -
Religion - We just did our memorization today. No one earned a chocolate chip again. We have to work harder at that.
Physics - We did our last balance quiz today. It was a fill in the blank quiz and they got all the blanks correct.
History - I had planned to read a book about John F. Kennedy today, but we haven't got it from the library yet so we read The Story of Ruby Bridges since we had been learning about Martin Luther King, Jr., desegregation, and civil rights. Her story always amazes me because she was such a little girl doing such an important and big work. I don't know that I, as a six-year-old, could have faced down angry mobs every day and been in a classroom by myself every day, knowing that other children weren't allowed to come to school because of me. I think I would have given up.
We also continued our timeline memorization and learned some more facts about Idaho. The kids loved the baked potato bar for yesterday's dinner and today's lunch. We looked at some pictures of Minnetonka Caves and Hell's Canyon.
Spelling - Racer missed one word on his spelling for the week, but Chicklette got 100% on her spelling test. She was so excited to show DH that she got them all correct.
Grammar - Racer's grammar dealt with contractions and reviewed personal pronouns and adjectives. Chicklette learned more about the seasons. We learned that we capitalize holidays, months, and days of the week, but we do not capitalize the names of seasons. We also reviewed all the months of the year and which seasons they belong in.
