HistoryRead aloud another chapter or two from Our Island Story
Listen to 2-4 chapters from The Story of the World
SciencesThe Girl: nature observation & journal entry; a chapter from Life in a Bucket of Soil; 2-3 chapters from The Story of Dr. Doolittle; and she'll choose a documentary, probably something on animals, to watch on Thursday
The Boy: a project from Stop Faking It! Force & Motion; 2-3 sections from The New Way Things Work, along with entries in his science MLB; documentary of his choice
LiteratureI'd like to start reading The Story of Siegfried, by James Baldwin (from this list I made), and we should finish up The Princess Bride.
As far as rotational literature, we'll be reading from The Complete Book of Marvels; Nonsense & Common Sense: A Child's Book of Victorian Verse; and A Really Short History of Nearly Everything. Next week, I'll add back in mathematical stories, and philosophy.
Of course, we're doing math, reading, spelling, writing, and Latin.
I feel very inspired! So I am drafting a rough outline in my "spare" time. It will be secular, and will address many of the ideas CM wrote about, but updated for the modern family. IF I get it written, and then published... well, we'll see. This means too that I am re-reading much of the original series, and making copious notes. This may take me a while!
Hope your week is off to a good start!
