Licola 2006

Darn. Cricket's first game back for 2006 is on 28th January - smack bang in the middle of our annual home educators camp. We'll be sorry to miss it this year, but not sorry enough to do the 5 hour drive for half the camp!

QuadrapopTree: Science Lists and Sites for Teens

Hey boys, the science links offered by Quadrapop could lead to interesting things... like BBC Science & Nature where you can meet the goat bred to spin spider silk.

reading and writing

Today, I built, wrote and read five new words: log, bat, fizz, red, sum. Mum dictated the spelling of a word I chose: NAQUADAH. Naquadah is a rare resource that is on the tv show Star Gate. Now because I have worked so hard I am going to play Cricket's Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic game.

Star Gate - Upgrades

The Tok'ra gave three members of SG-1 arm bands which increased their strength, speed, and reading speed. While SG-1 wore the arm bands they: ate lots of steaks and destroyed a Go'auld battleship before the time limit ended.

Grumblingly, for mum's sake, I worked through some workbook pages about prefixes, suffixes and syllables.

I want to have a nap now.

I want to have a nap now. However, mum wants me to type stuff. Today I learned that mum is mean. Fish and I have been playing star wars today. I’m going to learn history of English colonization. I’m going to learn more about WWII.
