You know how there are some weeks that are so busy you have tons of pictures to show for it, and then there are other weeks in which it is even busier and you have no photos to show for it because you were too busy doing and didn't have enough time to take photos! This week was the latter. I took some pictures on Easter Sunday, but the rest of the week was just a blur.
There were math problems to solve. There were history readings, narrations and copy work.
Early Middle Ages: Capetian France (987-1328)
Capet was the nickname given to a Hugh Capet because of the short cape he wore. He was a French king and he aimed to gather the dukedoms into a united France. Louis the Fat made alliances with the church leaders against the Germans and the English. In 1152 King Louis VII's wife, Eleanor divorced him and married Henry II, the French-Norman king of England, putting Aquitaine under Norman rule. This began a conflict that lasted even after the Capetian rule fell.
We worked on our model rockets and practiced using our clinometers.
Quentin finished his essay for his admission into the local theater camp. His assignment was to:
- Write about your personality, behavior and your interests at home and at school in whatever ways best describe yourself.
- Describe why the experience of attending Green Room Gang is important to you.
- What do you hope to achieve from the experience?
For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed watching people and how they react to different situations. One of my favorite things to do is to take what I have learned from watching people to write stories and act them out with my brother.
I also enjoy creating things such as making games or sculpting in clay. I enjoy sculpting figures with different poses and expressions. I enjoy stories of all kinds, but I have some learning disabilities that make reading difficult for me. I am working hard improve this weakness as I know that reading affects everything, including acting.
I am usually shy, but I discovered that when I am acting somehow the shyness fades away, and I discovered that acting was something that I loved to do. I try to use the best expressions that I have seen in real life in my acting. I began taking acting classes at my homeschool co-op and it led me to the goal of becoming an actor when I grow up. I feel that being a member of the Green Room Gang is the next step I should take to reach this goal. I am looking forward to meeting adults and other kids who love acting as much as I do.
We rehearsed the play we are doing at our co-op. We scheduled in a few more rehearsals, as our show date is coming up soon. The costumes and props are coming together.
We had guests over for dinner and game night.
