Third Quarter is finished- Week 27, 3/12-3/16!

We are moving along. Duncan has finished T4L's 3rd grade LA extentions and is working on the grade 4 grammar. He is sure to be finished with most of the other subjects before we complete the last quarter.

In history this quarter he has finished 10 chapters of America's Story: Land of Liberty and is one week ahead of schedule.

Supporting his history text, he has read When the Circus Came to Town by Lawrence Yep, George Washington Carver by Matt Doeden, Who Was Helen Keller? by Gare Thompson, If You Lived 100 Years Ago by Ann McGovern, The Wright Brothers by Quentin Reynolds, Hero Over Here by Kathleen V. Kudlinski, Ticket to the Twenties by Mary Blocksma, and Rose's Journal by Marissa Moss.

In addition to these, we have looked through books together that support his history readings: Tracks Across America by Leonard Everett Fisher, Immigrant Kids by Russell Freedman, and Children of the Depression by Russell Freedman.

We dropped the Essentials portion of Classical Conversations and Duncan began working through Scholastic's Success with Writing Grade 3 finishing through page 16.  He also started Killgallon's Sentence Composing for Elementary School and completed the first section that ends on page 17.

We are still going to Classical Conversations- Foundations. There he has continued to do memory work, science experiments, and art history w/ an art project.

This quarter we just did Kumon math alongside T4L, but the upside of this is that Duncan is moving through this level with little resistance.

Duncan is still taking art lessons, drama lessons and violin lessons. He had monologue day not too long ago and delivered Hiccup's monologue from the beginning of the movie How to Train Your Dragon.

I think that this pretty much covers third quarter.
