Weekly Report

We are at the point in the year where we are running full steam pushing through the material and getting a lot of work done. There is not a lot of exciting things going on as we are trying to just master the material.  Here are the highlights:

Grade 3

reading:  Flip and the Morning by Wesley Dennis
language arts:  verbs and working on phonics and reading
math:  14, 7 and 7, 15, 9 and 6, and working on regrouping with addition and subtraction

Basically, we are working really hard on the three r's and making good progress.

Grade 5

reading:  Tourist Trap by Charles Ogden
language arts:  verb tenses, composition
spelling:  easy words to gain confidence
science:  seeds
history:  Egypt
math:  turning improper fractions into whole numbers or mix fractions, things like 3/4 of 24 and 3 1/4 times 9

Again, she is making lots of progress and we are working our way through some tough material.  We are working through it all though.

It has been a good week.  A week of progress and a week of hard work and teaching.  I am happy with it.
