She worked on her place value review and on decimals. She learned how tenths, hundredths, and thousandths worked. By the end she was able to compare greater than, less than or equal to in decimals with moderate comprehension. I was very proud.
She then worked on her reading comprehension worksheet. These worksheets are pretty dumb and kinda boring. I don't know if I will continue with them. I think I may just find articles online and write my own questions up about them. Then I can pick things that are interesting to her and/or are necessary to know. I don't really know how knowing about the Okefenokee Swamp in Georgia is going to help her in the long run.
Casey worked on his reading and math sheets. Last night we played a rousing game of 4-Way Countdown. His reading is getting quicker and quicker. On of these days he's gonna take off and never look back. He was full of confidence today. I said, "You really are a very good reader. I don't know what you were worried about." He said, "Me, either."
Even Connor worked about two minutes on a worksheet with me. Then the moment was over and he proceeded to scribble on the sheet.
We then watched a short video about Molly Pitcher here.
