Mission accomplished

Math: Dragon took a placement test and passed it. Woohoo!
Monkey is coming along.
Dog Lover is coming along.
Tomorrow, six more pages.

Language Arts: Corrected worksheets.
Tomorrow, assign paper telling story about a picture due Monday. I'm tired of worksheets.

Reading: Select book. Read first of it to me.
Tomorrow, continue reading it. Ultimately write a book report in their blog for their own book.

Geography: Found about 10 different isthmuses, including the Isthmus of Panama (arguably the most famous), Isthmus of Suez, Aukland Isthmus, Isthmus of Avalon in Canada, Isthmus of Chignecto, Isthmus of Corinth in Greece, Isthmus of East Falklands, Rama's Bridge (a former isthmus), Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
Tomorrow, peninsula
Next week, review and test

Science: Build rockets. We built a paper rocket around a film canister, filled the canister 1/3 full with water, and dropped a tablet of Airborne into it. Then we shut the canister tightly and quickly, set it on the railing and waited. It shook then exploded. Dog Lover had the longest rocket, and it flew the furthest.
Tomorrow, write a report about it.

Spelling: Have a spelling bee for lesson 2. Monkey and Dog Lover participated.
Tomorrow, written spelling for lesson 2. Dragon will use each in a sentence since he would not participate in the bee.
Monday, Written test.

Family reading time: We are continuing to read Wheel on the School, by Mendert DeJong and illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
