spelling, completing the lesson with 100% accuracy (advanced level spelling with the phonetic zoo)
Math practice sheet (I'd planned to do the next lesson with her and move on, but we'll do that tomorrow)
Read another chapter in Pride and Prejudice (highschool level reading)
Two pages in her Pride and Prejudice companion book--reading and vocabulary work (hs level)
I had some "together" things planned, but she worked so hard and did such an impressive job, I let her have free time instead.
Braeden played GI Joes while the above activities took place. So, he and I did our reading practice and spelling links together, then math and a science/language arts combo lesson. Then we took Kaegan to the school for his time with Susie and we worked on our animal classifications game that we are making together.
Kaegan had an amazingly interactive time with Ms. Susie at school and then we did a little bal-A-vis-X. Soccer and karate were after school. whew!
We got a lot done and had a nice, productive day.

Here is Braeden standing next to his "Word Wall" as he graduates to the next level of words to read, spell, and use. We took these words off of the wall and added new, more advanced words. He was very proud of himself. He is quite a good speller!
We have enjoyed the "Working with Words" books by The Four Blocks.

I used this template http://www.faber-castell.com.au/bausteine.net/file/showfile.aspx?downdaid=5977&sp=E&domid=1010&fd=0 to make "choor hangers" to go on my kids' door knobs. I decorated them and I'm going to laminate them and use dry erase markers for their daily chores on one hanger, then weekly chores on another hanger. Several others, I used to list extra chores that they can earn money for. At the end of the week, they can bring the hangers to me for some kind of reward.
