Week 28 in CTG

Okay, this will get us caught up...

This week we read Jonah and a little of Isaiah to tie in with our 2 Kings readings. In History, we read about the Assyrians. It's funny, because many of the history readings say "Advanced" but Rabbit enjoys them, so we read them anyway. It is fascinating to learn about these things. There were several notebook pages this week to work on, so that was good.

We didn't do any of the science. We read the book, discussed them. But, I'm just not letting my child stay up all night. She feels the effects of lack of sleep, so she gets it. In fact, since reading that page, she's been trying to get to bed earlier.

It's been fun continuing on in The Children's Homer. It's been tempting to just go ahead and finish it, but each day we've had other things that have needed to get done, so we haven't.

I don't know if this is a bad idea or not... But, since we've been doing mostly review in Singapore (times and divide by 6, 7, 8 and 9 - all things we covered in Math-U-See Delta) I've only had Rabbit do the Review pages in the Textbook (unless it is just a totally new concept). She gets a lot of practice with the single digit into multiple digit number division. We're getting toward the end of 3A, and I suspect we'll do 3B over the summer.

The rest of it has been going fine. In writing, we're working on writing a story. She didn't want to do the idea in the book, so she made up her own list and is writing her own story. We went a couple of rounds of discussion about the story, but she got frustrated with me, so I told her she could write whatever she wanted. I'm sure it will be fine, but she gets so complicated in her stories. She wants to add so much detail rather than just scratch the surface.
