My older son is struggling to get into the groove this year. I have had warnings that 7th grade seems to be the crazy year for some kids...and boy, do I believe it! He has been harder than ever to discipline, has been more defiant and careless in his work, and his overall attitude just stinks sometimes.
If anyone has some prayers to spare, we could use them on that front.
His writing is coming along nicely using the IEW, but, as you can see, his carelessness shows in the number of mistakes he makes in a final draft as well as the missing MLA format! I am definitely proud of the composition in general, though.
Here are some of his notebook pages from Unit 7 and Unit 8 this week. He is doing a nice job with those.
And he is doing really well with Shakespeare. I think the coloring is cathardic for him. He really works hard on that part when, truly, that is not something I would be as picky about.
He is definitely my artistic child. Considering I have not one artistic bone in my body, that could explain some of our issues with one another.
This science experiment was fun! I didn't get pictures during the actual experiment, so the write-up is the best I can do.
