    For my 3rd grader:  Today this is what we did....

    He did his map of Europe test (filled in all of the countries of Europe With a word bank). 

    Then he took his Math U See test for lesson 19.  Watched the video for lesson 20.

    We read the story "How Spider Got a Thin Waist" from the Spider Tales of Africa.  He created a plot diagram of the story.

    We read the poem I'm Always in Parentheses by Ken Nesbitt and went over the rhyme scheme.  And then he worked on the rules for parantheses and how to use them in his grammar book.  He played a couple games on Spelling City for his new spelling list and wrote 2 of his spelling sentences for the week.

    I read the first section of the chapter on the Ottoman Empire.  Then he drew a picture of "The Sheep Rocks" with the caption that the man did not give to his God what he said he would so his God (Allah) punished him by turning he and his flock into rocks.   

    We used a spring scale measuring pounds and on measuring in Newtons to measure wooden blocks, his Bible, a quart jar, our fireplace poker and a bunch of other stuff.  He made a table with each of the weights in it.  Then he converted the table into a bar graph.

    He made a lion out of yarn and puff balls and pipe cleaners for art class.  He's working on 3-d art using different mediums.

    Then he did 30 minutes of gym class using the wii fit.  And he read his for fun book (A Series of Unfortunate Events) for 45 minutes.

    It really depends on the day.

    Math--> 2-3 pages in his workbooks, sometimes a math game on the computer or Khan Academy

    Grammar-->3-4 pages depending on what we are going over, Madlibs

    Phonics--> A lesson in ETC, usually does 4 pages of it so we can go back and do more if he doesn't remember the rule he learned

    Spelling--> write his words, some days pyramid words, rainbow words, write them 3x or any number of other ways and one page in his workbook, Monday we do the Pre-test, Friday we take the test

    Computer Programming-->Depends on if we are using or Khan Academy, but we usually spend about 30 min working on whichever program we are using

    Spanish-->This is kinda a freebie, D wants to learn, but I haven't gotten anything formal yet so he plays on My Spanish Coach on his DS.  Usually about 20 min or so. 

    Handwriting--> 2 pages in his workbook

    Everything else is a toss up right now.  We need to get caught up in History and Science.  When we start his 3rd grade English work, we will be doing a lot more writing than we have been.

    Math is at his either a page or 2 out of his workbooks or a lesson/quiz from time 4 learning.

    he has weekly spelling and vocabulary words.

    a science page or lesson from t4learning. We are going to be starting unit studies soon.

    we are reading a 500 page chapter book. I will go ahead and read some of it myself and make up questions and then have him read the same thing and answer the questions.

    he is working on cursive, a weather log, parts of sentences, animal families, telling time...

    we will also be starting to break down the U.S. State by state
