Thank goodness today was a MUCH better day. This enabled us to complete a FULL class load today. I think we’re both anxious for spring break.
The devotion was about the movie Hook. The one where Peter Pan is played by Robin Williams. Peter Pan had the motive and means to kill Captain Hook but didn’t. Peter Pan showed mercy. God values mercy. Both Nehemiah and Deuteronomy describe God as a merciful God.
I had JD finish challenge 8:6 for AWANAs and language arts today. He wrote six more reasons 1.) why he knows the bible is true 2.) things he knows about God, things he knows about Jesus, and things he knows about the Holy Spirit. And it looks nicely printed and spaced. He’s definitely getting better with writing.
In math today JD learned all about circumference and area on those pesky circles again. Ugh! The lesson reviewed the terms circumference, radius, and Pi (3.14). It taught JD to calculate the circumference by multiply the diameter. If the diameter was unknown it taught him to multiply the radius. Then, it taught him how to find the area for the circles. These formulas are making me dizzy.
I had JD go to http://www.yourchildlearns.com/europe_map.htm for social studies today. It was another interactive site to help him remember where each country in Europe is.
In science today we went to Brain Pop and learned about groundwater. JD learned about the system of porous soil and rocks, permeable or porous rocks, impermeable rocks, the zones of saturation, geysers, and hot springs. JD scored a 90% on the quiz.
I had JD continue reading the Louis L’Amour book.
