Weekly Report 2/19/10

A busy week, as evidenced by the fact that I haven't blogged all week.


Is working on prepositional phrases that modify other prepositional phrases. She likes diagramming them, with all the dangly bits hanging off of them. It helps that FLL4 (First Language Lessons level 4) gives a line drawing.

Finished the first week of the workbook for Writing With Ease level 3. I always rejected the idea of the workbooks for various reasons, but for some reason they struck me as fun when I walked by them in the bookstore the other day. So, here we are, doing the workbook. And so far (one week in) AnnaBeth is enjoying it.

Discovered her true calling as a person who prices carpet installation on a per yard basis, thanks to RightStart level E, which is currently all about square inches, square feet, square yards, square centimeters, etc. etc.

Has been intrigued by the Underground Railroad, and keeps picking up books on the subject at the library, even though we are finished with the Civil War in our history studies.

Listened to the first chapter of our new read aloud, Anne of Green Gables, yet another childhood classic that I've never read.

Attended 2 dance classes, a piano lesson, 2 drama classes, part of a Junior Girl Scout meeting, a choir rehearsal, a class in core strength and stretching; went ice skating; and, tagged along on a Cadette Girl Scout visit to Build-a-Bear corporate headquarters.

Continued to use Mango for French practice.


Has been working on multiplying and dividing polynomials.

Is zipping through the punctuation practices in Analytical Grammar season 3.

Continues to attend co-op classes for Apologia Physical Science -- they're working on astronomy right now.

Sometimes works on Jump In Writing.

Started on Barron's E-Z Spanish. By the way, if you decide to get this book be forewarned that the first few vocabulary lessons don't have labelled pictures -- what's up with that? I went through and wrote in labels as appropriate. She's also done a couple of more lessons on Mango.

Read Mable Riley to get a taste of Canadian history, and to supplement our read aloud of Anne of Green Gables.. She also disclosed to me that Mable Riley takes place in Justin Bieber's hometown, which possibly counts as a geography lesson.

Attended 3 dance classes, a class in core strength and stretching, a piano lesson, a Cadette Girl Scout meeting, a Scout field trip to Build-a-Bear corporate headquarters.

I loved this. "She likes diagramming them, with all the dangly bits hanging off of them." LOL. She and my daughter would get along wonderfully. Great week!
