Today's Lessons

 

Just to give you an idea as to our work load for a day, today is a random day and we'll talk a bit about what is going on in the house.
John wakes up first, begins working on lessons I have placed on the table for him last night.  I awaken shortly later, he brings everything into my room.  Together we worked on math (Saxon 7/6, lesson 45).  He used a science article to practice using context to understand the meaning of new words.  We watched a Christian movie on Netflix called "Icons on Evolution", talking about creation science.  (Hey, you've got to know what they're saying, right?!)  John was appalled at the bad science in that one.  It's hours later and he is still steaming about the ridiculous claims in that film.


Next he did more math, learned some current events with me at the computer, and learned about Buddhism.
That's over four hours of work for him.  In the middle, he took a break and played in the sprinkler on the trampoline.

Elizabeth is learning about the various cabinet members in the US Cabinet (LOTS of work there), practicing writing basic Korean characters, Saxon Algebra Lesson 14, reading in "Things Come Apart", cellular biology, and watching a couple of TEDtalks on theater.  Hers is well over four hours, she is about half way through that at this point.
And now, as she is listening to John go on and on about the film, she wants to watch it too.  LOL
