Grade 4, Spring Term, Beowulf Week 2, Day 1 ~ Papa Jumps On Board

Monday is our library day; T-Guy read 2 big novels and several other books last week and checked out 2 more big novels. These are the last in the Pendragon series of books that he has been reading. J-Baby read many, many shorter books over the past week: Magic Treehouse books, picture books, Dr. Seuss books, and of course his stand-by, science books.

Sunday night we were sitting around the table eating our once-a-week dessert (mango sorbet this week) and talking about our next installment of Beowulf when Papa mentioned that he would have liked to listen with us had we not started already. I quickly decided that the boys and I could listen again to the parts we'd already heard, and starting the mental reorganization process, as clearly we couldn't listen during our usual time.

Today's lesson work: grammar via words games and several new grammar picture books from the library, oral spelling work, oral math practice, listening to Beowulf.
