We started school Wednesday morning, around 8:45 am. The girls flew through their subjects. Emma said its easy. She didn't fight at all. In fact, she snuck in early and did a science lesson. When I told her we were starting with space and a different lesson, she did it willingly.
To sum up yesterday:
2 science experiments. One with shadows, one with copper iodide. Emma tracked a shadow for 2 hours. Annie heated up a penny and put iodine on it to create a compound different from its components.
Annie started Latin and was pleased that she recognizes many of the words or forms of the words.
Emma noticed that her literature passage was from the Bible.
Emma discovered that typing games can be fun, especially when they have ghosts.
Sarah became familiar with the shapes from Handwriting without tears and even wrote her name!
Laura outwitted us all, went upstairs and watched Woody and Buzz. :)
Sarah worked on her glue skills, gluing gems. She also did puzzles.
Annie is starting to research the Panama Canal
Emma found Colorado on the map and globe
Adam got bored and has convinced us he needs an exersaucer, soon.
There was no fighting or arguing from anyone and we finished by 2:00pm. It was an ideal day.
