It was a new kind of Tuesday for us. With piano lessons in the morning and our Play-well Lego® class in the afternoon. Our Tuesdays are busy!
I have to say, that Isabel pulled it off. We completed all but 2 subjects and we can focus on them tomorrow! Very proud of our girl!
In the classroom (before leaving for piano):
We started the morning with getting into the Bible and read our reading from both Isaiah and 1 Corinthians. Great way to start the day! Filling our minds with things above and getting the right mindset for the day!
Great job again on spelling.
Isabel has been keeping a journal since receiving one for her birthday. Each morning I give her 10 minutes or so to write her thoughts down before moving on with the rest of the day. She has kept it up (without complaint) since. I have not read all the entries but have peeked at a few, in hopes of seeing more lengthy passages. Maybe as she continues to write, they will get lengthier and she’ll begin to enjoy writing more. We’ll see.
On the way to piano lessons, Isabel read aloud part of our history lesson for the day. She did an awesome job and by the time we arrived at our piano teacher’s door, we were finished. This also worked well at getting Isabel to read louder, due to road noise and such. I may have to keep this in mind and continue the practice each week in order to boost her voice volume while reading at home.
After meeting Daddy for lunch, we arrived back home and worked on several more things with a heavy focus on Language Arts: past, present and future tenses. We also worked on passive and active voice.
Before our Lego® class, Isabel played 2 online games. One was a Lewis and Clark expedition game and the other was a state location game. She loved the state location game and played both the easy and harder version. She even tried her hand at the capital game but wasn’t able to finish before we left. It’s something we will play again.
We also completed our 5-minute frenzy test for the day.
Today’s test was a bit of a challenge, I had added 10, 11 and 12 multiplications to the mix.
She got flustered and didn’t finish but that’s O.K.
I realized today that I have been grading her frenzy tests wrong. So from now on it will be correct.
