Learning Notes Week of July 31

Math.

Monday July 31

Bella had a cup of coffee this morning and was very focused and energetic.

She did a few lines of cursive copywork. She did several math lessons in Khan Academy. She copied out a paragraph from Pigeon Post. She set up a new Latin notebook and copied some vocabulary words into it. She read me a poem.

Sophie did a page of Miquon math, copied the second half of the stanza she’d started on Friday and worked on memorizing the verse she’d been copying. She also read to me from her geography book and reviewed the Hail Mary in French.

Ben did a page of math, a letter workbook page, and some copywork.

Anthony did a page of math, some copywork, and read me a couple pages about St Ignatius of Loyola, his name saint whose feast it was today.

Anthony helped me make some banana nut muffins for his treat.

Afternoon stories: All of a Kind Family Downtown, Golden Fleece, Roman Myths, St John Vianney, Augustus Caesar’s World.

Bedtime stories: Bella read a scene from Shakespeare’s Star Wars (She’s also begun memorizing bits of it.)
