Narration highlights taken from end of term exam

Q: Tell me about your favorite Aesop’s Fable

A: The wolf and the kid. A kid thought she was an adult and so when the mum called he kept in chewing grass and when he went he saw the wolf that he didn’t want so he asked him to play his flute and then all the dogs came and saved him from the wolf. And, do not let anything turn you from your purpose.

Q: What is one of your favorite pieces from our composer study this term? (We studied Debussy)

A: Suite Bergamasque Prelude. I like that its smooth and sounds nice. It’s sounds like your playing a mixture slowly into a ball.

Q: What instruments were used?

A: I think it’s a piano.

Q: Tell me about St Alban

A: St Alban was not a Christian and he lived in a little home and Romans came to kill Christians. And one Christian came to him and the soldiers didn’t know that they were there until one day and St Alban put his coat over the Christian and the Christians coat over him and he got tied up and brought to the priest and he threw off his coat and he was like brought to the… And he was asked some questions, which I can’t remember the questions and he was brought to a mountain and he found some water and he drank some and the soldier threw away his sword because he knew he hadn’t done anything wrong. Isn’t that right? And the priest cut off Albans head as well as the soldiers and then they buried him on that mountain and called him St Alban and put a church on that same spot. Made a church that was his and after a few years it broke and they made another one. That stayed there for a while and it’s still there today.

Well that’s it. Just a few highlights from term 1, our first term homeschooling here in Florida. What have been some highlights for you?

  1. Oh, how wonderful! Those exam answers are great!

    We’re doing exams this week. I’m delighted with Jemimah’s narrations too. Highlights? The Hobbit, Sculpey clay modelling, living science, and Jemimah reading more by choice. Yay!

    • Sounds like you had fun. I haven’t seen The Hobbit yet, couldn’t twist dear husbands arm. It must be satisfying for you to see your love of reading begin to rub off on Jemimah. I love exam week because its usually shorter 😉 Hope your exams go well. Have fun.
