At Home...

Week 10 in EEL Guide-

  • Work on the Adjective chart. Pay close attention to the definition and questions that an adjective answers. After that, focus on anything in bold.
  • There are quite a few review charts. Read the Grammar Mastery Charts section on pg. 165 (pg. 167 for an updated version) for more details about each review chart for this week.
  • Work through as many practice sentences as you can and as your child's ability allows.
  • Analytical Tasks as time and ability allows.
  • 3rd Years: For time's sake, I usually don't have Ellie do the Quid et Quo for every single word on an advanced sentence, but will pick a few different parts of speech. (Almost always a verb, and then maybe a noun, or pronoun, an adjective or adverb). And then other days, do other parts of speech.


TWSS Unit 5 and Lesson 16 in the MHBW-

  • Work on KWO for Lesson 16: The Magic Lamp using the questions on pg. 108. These are by no means an exhaustive list of questions and you do not have to ask them in a specific order. Don't forget to go back and read pg. 69 in the TWSS for lots of guidance in teaching our children (and ourselves) how to think!
  • Write a rough draft from the KWO. Remember to think of this as an event description. Each paragraph has the same purpose.
  • Different than the Story Sequence Chart because each paragraph has a Topic/Clincher sentence. The TWSS suggests that if a clincher is too difficult for younger students, they may repeat the topic sentence exactly, then rewrite with a synonym.
  • Great brainstorming page in the MHBW, pg. 110. Don't forget to look at lots of examples for Unit 5 in the TWSS.
  • Write the final draft using the checklist on pg. 111 (EZ+1)!! Try to add the past perfect tense if your child is able to do so without too much frustration.
  • New Vocabulary Words this week.

Philippians 4:8

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things." Notice all the S-Vl-PA patterns!
