Columbus Sailed The Ocean BLUE 🙂 :
Our second day of school went great! Ryan had fun building and sailing his very own models of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. We read about and watched a video (Drive Thru History) about the history and adventures of Christopher Columbus. Ryan got 100% on math today – YAH!!! We also learned how to label key words when doing a Bible study, did some copywork for history, listened to and read the words of My Father’s World (and discussed how God shows Himself to us through nature), and a few other activities. Ryan will start his language arts and spelling program next week. Here are some pictures of his day:
I don’t want to leave Brendan out, but since he won’t be participating in as many hands-on activities I won’t be sharing as many pictures of his work this year. But, I do have to say that he is doing WONDERFUL with his high school work so far! I am very proud of how he is taking initiative, following instructions, and working independently! Below is a picture of his Week 2 checklist:
Each day he works his way through the daily checklist. I’m available if he has any questions, but so far he hasn’t needed me very often. Science and Foreign Language are marked out since he won’t start those classes until September 9th.
Brendan started on his timeline book yesterday:
Here is a sample of his Old Testament Studies:
And a copy of his first writing assignment (an argumentative essay):
Now we are headed to the pool –
we’ve got to squeeze in every last minute of summer fun!!!!
