Here's what we've been up to this quarter:
Reading - Millie has been spending more time reading out loud, and it's been helping a lot. I can tell if we've gone a few days without reading out loud, because she seems out of practice.
Grammar - We're still loving English 2 from BJU Press. Millie learned about using a thesaurus, writing instructions using a time-order chart, verbs in past and present tense, special verbs, homophones, poetry; writing a couplet, rhyming poem, and a shape poem.
Spelling - Eh. This needs improvement. Simply using a spelling list isn't cutting it. This area will need improvement for next year, big time.
Literature - During 3rd quarter we read Mr. Popper's Penguins, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and we started (and are still working on) The Candymakers.
Math - She's still plugging away at Saxon 2. We still both love it.
Giuseppe Arcimboldo and made a portrait of a bird out of different beans and rice.
Out And About - We did much better with getting out at least twice per week. With her homeschool group, we went to The Works museum, Wells Fargo Winter Skate, the Raptor Center, Eagles Nest, hosted a Valentines party, and went to the planetarium. We also had several play dates and trips with friends to museums.
I think that covers everything! We've been very busy, and having a lot of fun!
