Allyson finished reading D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths. She’s been reading it for the past 2 months… just a story or two at a time.
I told her to pick her favorite Greek God, draw a picture, and write a little report about it. She picked two!
And we took the family to see “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief” which we all LOVED but Allyson didn’t. *sigh* at least, that’s what she said to me.
Alright, so I know this is typically what grade 5 would be learning, but since this was my first year homeschooling then Allyson needed a background on the Greek Myths before we could move ahead with Rome. I fought tooth-and-nail with her to be interested in Greek Myths. and she is NOT interested in Rome. I am so proud that she actually got this assignment done!
Has anyone else had to deal with a situation like this? I feel like we haven’t gotten much schooling done this year because we are stuck.
