Today he mainly missed the number-line problems. He got confused. He thought he was suppose to write the negative numbers. There were a few things he didn't understand or didn't read them carefully. For instance : Write the largest three-digit number that has a 6 in the ones place and a 4 in the tens place. He put the answer as 46. When I was done correcting I went over his missed problems like the one mentioned above. I read the problem to him, showed him he placed the 4 & 6 correctly but it says three-digit number. He then answered 10! I showed him that would be too many numbers. "What is one less than 10?", I asked, he understood and said, "9" with a big, "Oh, I get it."
This was a first in a long time that he was not frustrated when I showed him what he missed. He actually gave me a hug and had a big smile.
Here is Joshua's work station.
The sock, I believe has darts in it. His dart gun, uh, I think that was a day when there were many battles being fought. His assignment is to read Eric Liddell and write a three paragraph essay about him. He is using Character Quality Language Arts.
Annette, started Junior Analytical Grammar this week. My daughter does not like to write BUT she was excited with this writing assignment "Playing with Words". Mayb the word 'playing' had something to do with it.
She had to write one paragraph using the words listed. I was almost going to have her skip these assignments, but new they where there to help Annette, put her grammar skills to use. To my surprise she was excited to do it. I think it challenged her to use all the words and be creative.
She even wrote it twice!!! The top portion is her rough draft or as she put it her ideas and thoughts (thank you meaningful composition). The second is her final copy.
Annette, is a huge help with Lance. Here she has him coloring.
He is her laundry partner this week. That is why there is a basket full of clothes next to him.
Here is Brent reading from his Christian Light Reader.
Ethan, taking a look at what we could win if we get all the game pieces.
A few weeks ago I lost Caleb's math workbook. Light Unit 306. I had to erase Annette's old L.U.
Yesterday, I found the L.U. it was under a pile of papers. I had checked that pile many times but it was at the very bottom. You couldn't really see it because the workbook is not very thick.
Caleb wasn't as excited as I was with the find.
