While we are still trying to figure out our internet, we decided to do only 4 days this week - hmm - it might be becoming a habit. Good or bad - only time will tell. Today we looked at our new spelling words: studies, thirteen, along, cracker, hare, pick, sugar, aloud, crazy, hobbies, pinch, sunny, hang and Inuit. We started off the week with Little Miss 8's favourite subject - Language Arts of all things. We did a bit on Idioms and poetry and learnt a bit more about Inuits and why their home is called "the land of the midnight sun".
Today we went over the spelling words and discussed topics such as Fact and Opinion, Cause and Effect, and Fantasy and Reality. Little Miss 8 also wanted to complete the section on poetry and start the section on non-fiction comprehension so we jumped ahead a little while she was in a "learning" mood.
Today we looked at Inuits and their language and discussed Collecting, Organizing and Interpreting Data in terms of making discoveries and realisations in science.
We had the spelling test and Emilia scored 13/15. She had a great day today in terms of mathematics and mastered the level on addition and subtraction.
