Dollygirl's Grade Seven: Term Two, Week Three

Starting back to school after our holiday break--but we started Term Two before Christmas, so we have a head start.  It's a nasty day here today (unlike A Peaceful Day's first day of Year Seven).  The school buses are cancelled, the rural schools are closed, but somebody made the decision to keep the city schools open, so Ponytails is off to Grade Eleven in a taxi...that is, if the taxi ever comes.  And that's because the end of our driveway is completely plowed in.

Things to do today, besides shovel out:

Look through the term schedule, talk about special things coming up.

Read some of Ourselves Book II.

Do some of Algebra Lesson 4 on

Read some poetry.

Read Watership Down.

Do a page of grammar (verb tenses).

Science:  start a crystals kit that The Apprentice dug up.  Read some of the chapter on fossils.

Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?

Dollygirl will probably want some crafts time, but right now she has her own ideas for crafts and does not need any suggestions from me.

Hi! Sounds like a great start. We have a snow day and the flu...Not a great start to the term!

Is Dollygirl still sewing? I have some fabric ends for her if she is interested.

Is this "l'Harmas Lisa?" Sorry to hear you are sick. Yes, Dollygirl has been using up all my fabric lately, so any extra is always welcome. Her friend around the corner gave her a big scrap of red velvet so she's going to make something with that next.

Sorry, I should have clarified - Yes, that's me! I'd be thrilled to put together a box for Dollygirl. I'll let you know when it is ready.
