Opening time: choice of hymn, work on memory work (from Romans 8).
The Grammar of Poetry, done together. A lesson on similes.
Key to Percents, Book 3. First activity: play "Guess My Decimal" with a celebrity panel of dolls and stuffies. Each one has an index card with one of the eight multiplication-of-decimals problems on page 13. Your job: to solve all the problems before the time runs out. Cash and large expensive prizes will probably not be involved.
Second activity: Work through page 14. Do not solve the problems; just rewrite them as instructed.
Homework activity: Solve the problems on page 15.
English History: Two short chapters in Arnold-Forster's History of England. Homework: read two pictorial books, Fishbourne: A Day in a Roman Palace, and Roman Britain by Felicity Hebditch. Come to class tomorrow with a list of ten Stump-the-Teacher questions and answers.
Handicrafts: Start working on a mini cross-stitch project.
Plutarch's Lives: Coriolanus, Lesson 2. (We will be reading the corresponding scene from Shakespeare's play later in the week.)
Easy Grammar Plus: one page in the workbook.
Christian Studies: read the next chapter in the Acts of the Apostles, and narrate.
Teatime! (and probably Tolkien)
