I’m posting this a bit late since we started our third six weeks circle time this week. 😉 Ah, well. Since I do this for myself as much as anyone else, here it is:
1. Continue reading through John
2. Continue memorizing Philippians 2:1-18
3. Latin memory review work for the week (from Latin for Children Primer A)
4. New poetry
Lulu–“I Never Saw a Moor” and “There Is No Frigate” by Emily Dickinson
Louise–“The High Winds of Nuuanu” by Robert Lewis Stevenson
5. The Gettysburg Address
6. New hymn–“Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus”
7. Review poem, passage, hymn, document
Since we’re at the end of the six weeks and into the next one, I can report on how much we did as opposed to how much I wanted to do. 🙂
1. We’ve progressed to about chapter 14 in John. I’m trying to read this slowly and thoughtfully, so I’m not in a hurry.
2. In Philippians 2, the girls have gotten down through verse 8, though verses 9-10 flow from that (and are verses the girls have learned in AWANA and Bible study), so we’re going to say we’ve learned through verse 10 at this point.
3. We’re currently stalled at chapter 10 of Latin for Children Primer A. I’m hoping to nail the first three declensions in the next week and then move on.
4. Lulu learned her two Dickinson poems easily. Louise’s poem is another thing entirely; it’s a difficult one to learn, but she’s determined. “The High Winds of Nuuanu” is apparently quite an obscure poem (I found it in a PDF document) which she learned about by following a rabbit trail from a book she read about Queen Liliuakalani. Stevenson spent his final days in Hawaii and wrote “The High Winds of Nuuanu” about an experience there.
5. The girls have memorized the first two paragraphs (five sentences) in the Gettysburg Address.
6. “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus” was a bust because somehow the girls ended up never having a copy of the song to practice in my absence.
7. We didn’t do the review many times this six weeks, if any.
