Dollygirl's Friday school plans

Dollygirl is deep into a Cornelia Funke novel that the Apprentice loaned her, so much so that it's a temptation just to say "forget school, go 'wead your book.'"  But don't get excited, Dollygirl: we still do need to get some lessons in before the weekend.

Opening time, O Canada, memory work

Ourselves: on Gratitude.

Literature:  The Bronze Bow, chapter 6.  Either some extremely dull grammar exercises on the book from a literature guide, or a written narration.  Mama Squirrel recommends door number two.
Friday math, problem solving and games:  A new game, Hasami Shogi, in the Klutz Book of Classic Board Games.  Actually what we're playing is Dai hasami shogi, if that matters.
French history:  Attila the Hun.

Current events:  what happened with the homeless shelter's food preparation problems?  What fifteen-year-old math prodigy is now studying at an Ontario physics institute?  What else is going on in the world?

Folk Songs:  "The Sands of Dee"  

Friday art time:  Time today to work on the art portion of the term's geography project.  (A "treasure box" holding souvenirs of H.V. Morton's trip across England.)
