Challenged!! Day 14

Boykin began his day by working on a Scratch project.

Then both Boykin and The Girl did maths. Boykin is working on symmetry which meant it only took him about 10 minutes to finish his page of MEP today. I didn't use much of the lesson plan because we've looked at symmetry a few times before in various projects so it was mostly revision for him. In the meantime, The Girl was working on ratios in her GCSE Maths  book.

I read the next part of the So You Really Want to Learn Science Book 1 to Boykin and he answered the questions at the end. Today it was all about classification. Again, this was mostly revision as we have looked at this in a few different literature-based unit studies that we've done over the years.

We went into town this afternoon to do a couple of errands and then they went to their guitar lessons. The Girl also had a singing lesson and she made tea when we came home. I must admit, I'm very much enjoying that she has taken on responsibility for doing most of the cooking. She's learning so much more now than before when she made an occasional meal or did a bit of baking. There's lots of planning involved as well as the actual cooking process. It's not just about being able to follow a recipe, she also has to juggle the separate dishes so that they're all ready at the same time and still be hot :)
