Homeschool Log Thursday 12/10/09

Austin and Amanda both had a busy day today.

Austin spent some time on the computer again. He visited the Mr. Anker site again and did this math activity. He also went to Gamequarium and watched Adjectives for Armando (part 2).And he spent a good bit of time playing Mahjong.

Both Austin and Amanda did a lesson from Dance Mat Typing. I've been really pleased with how quickly they are picking up typing and actually enjoying it.

Amanda did a worksheet from her Addition Drills and Skills workbook (Adding Three Digit Numbers) and a worksheet from her Language Arts Grammar Skills workbook (Irregular Verbs).

This afternoon we spent about an hour reading together. We read the Song of Solomon from the Bible. We read the chapter titled "Meiosis is a Special Form of Cell Division" from our Life Science Book. We also read chapters 13 and 14 from "Rilla of Ingleside" by L. M. Montgomery.

Both Austin and Amanda read chapter 24 from "Oliver Twist" by Charles Dickens. (Great Illustrated Classics)

Doing their chores, helping with the younger kids and unstructured free time rounded out their day.

Austin and Amanda spent the evening at their grandparents house, as they do nearly every Thursday evening.
