Song School Latin week 2
This is so easy to use and Duncan loves the songs. LOL! Go figure. I was worried that he wouldn’t sing them at all.

Barron’s Spanish Every Day
First half of chapter 1 with index card vocabulary
This casual approach is nice, I plan to cover a chapter in 2 weeks and then review it in the third week.

BYKI Farsi
Good grief. My husband is Persian. You wouldn’t think that this would be a problem, but we are getting nowhere with Farsi.

Draw Squad
Duncan wants to draw more accurate representations of what he sees, but I don’t know that he is ready for this book. This week we started lesson 1. Duncan drew two pictures- a birthday cake and a T.V. We will be taking this real slow as he is easily discouraged/ frustrated when his drawings don’t turn out like he thinks they should.

Well, violin hardly happened this week. Where is that blushing emodicon?
