Back to Learning

Yup, first day back to learning in my household. Remember the summaries that my 4th grader needed to do over spring break...still undone. We basically enjoyed the 9 days off. I didn't even tried asking him to do it. He will be doing it this morning before he starts his lessons for today. If we can't finish his lessons listed today...too bad. It will get pushed the next day.

I just hated being asked to work on non-school days, and I am not allowed to put any hours for that day. When it comes to worst, I can opt out the stupid speech lesson altogether. Then, the school don't have to look at my son like a money bag. Yes, I am still pissed about the whole thing.

Spring Break for Us

This will be my much awaited break to relax after all the testing and switching lesson on Language Arts for my 4th grader. We (my children and I) have 9 days off, counting this weekend and next weekend.

There will be another Aims web testing in May for my 2nd and 1st grader. I have to drive them somewhere for this too.

I got a call from the cyber school today, telling me to make a choice before we start our spring break. The choice is to put if my children is coming back, un-decided or getting out. Up until now, I haven't done anything. What they gonna do? Remove my children?

With the 5 days, 9 including weekends, my 4th grader online speech teacher wanted him to do some work in summarizing. I hate public school. I think I establish that a long time ago. They are taking the fun out of little vacation they provide...ugh!

Finding Range and Mode on a Data

Just a note: My children are in 4th grade and below.

A new lesson for my 2nd grader today. Finding the range and mode on a data set.

To find the range...find the biggest or highest number and the least or smallest number. Then subtract the least from the most and you got the range on the number data.

Example: 40, 38, 28, 10, 5
use 40 and 5....40-5 = range (35)

To find the mode...just pick the numbers that is use the most.

Example: 16, 20, 70, 16, 11, 16, 16, 11
the easy way to find it, is to put the numbers in order (for younger child)
11, 11, 16, 16, 16, 20, 70
16 is used 3 times, meaning the number 16 is the mode.

Edible Red Desert Clay, Came

With flash

Mr. UPS dropped it on my front door Wednesday noon. I did tried it that day and it does not taste like mud but it smells like mud. And don't get me started with the grainy part at the bottom of my glass. Those things lingers on my teeth until I rinse my mouth.

Without flash

I distilled my water to remove all the bad things in it. Then I add the red desert clay before drinking it. It's quite funny, removing the bad things and putting some good things. Or, removing and killing everything on my water, then I turn around and put it back in the form of clay Well, as long as my family is healthy, I will do weird things.
