Opening time:  hymns, memory passage

History of English Literature: begin two connected chapters on the (real or invented) Gaelic poet Ossian and the story of Fingal (printed out on several pages, with spaces to add illustrations)
Math: Key to Percents, pages 30-31.  Calculating the percentage of sales tax and discounts.

History of England: How the Saxons, Angles and Jutes invaded Britain; how their arrival was different from that of the Romans; what happened to the Britons; and what happened to Christianity in Britain at that time.
Natural History : Keeping a Nature Journal

Christian Studies: Book of Acts, chapter 6.  "And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people."

Easy Grammar Plus: What is the difference between a word like "down" when it is used as a preposition and when it is used as an adverb?  "She walked down the street."  "She looked down."
Whatever Happened to Penny Candy : Dollars, Money, and Legal Tender.  What did a "dollar" originally mean, and why is "legal tender" like counterfeit money?

After supper:  swimming lesson.
