Grade 4, Week 9, Day 2 ~ Improvising
Boy, am I glad to have a few things to fall back on when I am sick. Today the boys did a Mavis Beacon typing lesson, practiced their multiplication tables using Timez Attack, and spent more than an hour building and programming a Mindstorms Robot. Now they are listening to an audio book; later this evening we'll watch more Oliver Twist and Papa will read to them from A History of US. Add in their typical daily activities such as drawing, reading, and playing board games and we have a full day of learning even when Mama is incapacitated.
We are a day behind where I wanted to be this week, but I think I'll be up to filling the workboxes tonight and we'll get started on our fraction block tomorrow.
