Week 13 Review

Our week in review:

Language Arts: This looks just like last week - grammar, vocabulary, spelling, handwriting, writing and reading lessons. Ryan is still finalizing his story/novel outlined for next month (Young Writers Program). Nathan is still busy outlining his ideas for his short story. David completed a vocabulary lesson and continues to practice for the ACT test he will take later this year.

Literature: This week they read/covered: Frankenstein, Simon Bolivar: Statesman and Liberator, In the Land of the Jaguar: South America and It's People, Adoniram Judson: Bound for Burma, Our Country's Presidents (Monroe) and Hunter Brown and the Consuming Fire. David is working on a paper on The Last of the Mohicans.

History: I blog about our weekly history lessons in detail at the beginning of each week. This week we covered Monroe and the American Hemisphere.

Science: Nathan and Ryan attended Co-op this week. You can see what they did here. At home this week, they continued studying Module 3 and are working through the study guide. David is continuing with his chemistry lessons and working with his weekly lab group.

Math: Nathan and Ryan are still working through a unit study on fractions. We are almost done with it and I'm gathering resources together for several math projects to work on for the next few weeks. David is continuing to work through his Algebra II lessons.

Other: Continued working on logic worksheets, a Latin and french lesson.

4-H projects: Nathan and Ryan are working on a farm city poster project and a woodworking project that are both due in next week. Yikes!

Field Trip: We took a field trip to Burritt on the Mountain for hiking and mining. I blogged about this field trip here.

Outdoor Pursuits: The weather is still a bit rainy, so the boys have been playing with their friends and riding their bikes. Sunday, we went hiking because the weather was gorgeous!

I'm still looking forward to the change up next week. I think the boys will really enjoy their projects.
