Dollygirl's Grade Seven: Ambitious plans for another cold Wednesday (Update: what we really accomplished)

Hymn: "Christian, Dost Thou See Them?"

Basic Bible Studies, by Francis Schaeffer.  Begin #12: "Salvation—How?"  (We looked at several verses in John chapter 3.)

Algebra worksheet from

History and Composition:  Written narration for the Battle of Hastings (a.k.a. the Norman Invasion).

Quick note on Norman influences on English (a review, we've already read this book) from Word Origins by John Butterworth, a handy little reference.

The Easy Grammar Plus: one page on verb tenses.


Architecture Shown to the Children;  begin "Norman Architecture: A Sturdy Style."

Grammar of Poetry:  What is onomatopoeia?  Make up your own onomatopoeic words to describe sounds such as a pop can opening, fingernails on a blackboard (these are in the book).  (Fun review exercise in this lesson with quotes from Tolkien.)

Homework:  Read the section of General Science that got missed previously.
