Yet, somehow, all of the scheduled AO readings were completed, along with 3 days of Bible, 2 lessons each of typing and Spanish, a spelling lesson, reading and copywork lessons, math and piano. I did less of several things, but there is no doubt he was still learning.
The readings for week 5 were followed, except for:
The Bible - Discernment was our character trait, and lesson 13 from Calvary Curriculum
Tree in the Trail
Poetry of Walter de la Mare - I only read poetry twice this week, so we are through pg 21 now
For piano, we did Lesson 12 from freepianolessons4kids.com, then tried out a new iPad app. Its called Piano Dust Buster by Joy Tunes, and is similar to Magic Piano (which my husband loves). Both remind me of Tap Tap Revenge, or Guitar Hero :) The great thing about Dust Buster is that it shows the keys and as you (a little granny on the keyboard, holding a feather duster) tap the key at the right time, granny jumps up and dusts the "germ", making music. Its too cute. It also has a real piano mode, where your ipad listens to your actual instrument to play the game. However, we couldn't get it to "hear" our keyboard, so that's something for me to figure out soon!
On Friday, I used my Groupons for Kentucky Down Under, which is about an hour from here. It was a warm day but we both enjoyed it more than I thought we would (I'd heard mixed reviews).
