I played with Numbers and am tweaking their gradebook template. I think it'll work. I'll play with it this summer and hope to have my gradebook settled by the time we start our real school year in August.
We had a great time in English. We've parsed the first three sentences of Psalm 1. We've diagrammed the first one and will diagram the next two today. The three little ones are copying it for handwriting and our pastor will preach on it in two Sundays. We learned about some cool rhetorical figures - antanaclasis (or a clashing of words) and hyperbaton (changing word order for effect and emphasis). We're also looking at the difference between the seven basic parts of speech and the different jobs that are done in a sentence by words, phrases, and clauses.
We haven't tackled logic yet this week, and we have more economics to do. We're about half-way through Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson, reading it aloud and watching Jeffrey Tucker's interviews with various economists about the book. When we're done with that, we'll begin watching the Teaching Company's Economics lectures and reading Thomas Sowell's Basic Economics.
We also started working on learning to sing in parts. We're starting with 'Happy Working Song' from Enchanted and I'm thinking of adding in 'How Will She Know?' from the same movie. And we've started doing some exercises that I remember from my high school theatre classes. We may do a readers' theatre or else choose a scene or two from a play and block it as both a play and a film.
It's time to head to the salt mines!
