Dollygirl's Grade Seven: Term Two begins

Dollygirl''s Term Two begins this week, but in a low-key kind of way.  I understand perfectly why some homeschoolers just give school a miss before Christmas--it seems the last thing you want to be doing right now is thinking of ways to teach geology.  Crafting and so on are much more fun.  But if Dollygirl were in public or private school, she'd be having classes just the same, so that's what we do.

This week's school plans:

Monday:
Book of Acts, half a chapter.
The last chapter of The Sword and the Circle: "The Coming of Percival."  Half today, half Wednesday.
Algebra
The Lay of the Land: half a chapter
French readaloud (continuing until Christmas)
Geology unit

Special handicraft: Planet June's crocheted Christmas Wreath ornament
