Weekly Recap: April 30-May 4, 2012

We are winding down our school year.  It's such a great feeling to finish books and drop subjects from our daily line-up.  This week we completed all our Bible and Latin.  S10 also finished his writing.  We only have two chapters left in history.  We'll complete those next week along with chemistry.  H13 drags her feet a bit more than the others.  As a result, her list of work to be finished is a bit longer.  She'll be working on logic and algebra next week.

The plan is to finish up our academic work next week.  We'll spend the remainder of the month reading, listening to books on dvd, completing our standardized testing and going on field trips.

For our homeschool co-op this session, the children all participated in play performances.  H13 took part in a version of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.  S10 and M7 were involved in musical versions of various fairly tales.  The performances of the plays took place on Tuesday and Thursday night this week.  We were very pleased and proud of all our performers.

Last but not least, the highs and lows for the week:

High - History.  I enjoyed learning about how American got Texas and California.
Low - Logic.  Traditional Logic is so annoying.

High - I'm finished with everything but math.
Low - I still have to do math.

High - I'm done with everything else.
Low - I'm not done with math.

High - Three play performances + a full week of school work.  We got a lot done this week!
Low - Chemistry.  We are behind on chemistry.  I'm planning to have chemistry as my high next week.
