Weekly Wrap-up: SOTW3Ch13 and 15b The French

This is the point at which WTM advised a home educator to read from A. Dumas or some profound literature from a French background. However, we've just finished the Henty book about When London Burned, and that's what I'm serious about. We've visited London and will again. The closest we've been to France is a family field trip to Montreal, or the recent Daddy trip to Senegal.  We plan to find Strasbourg v-e-r-y s-o-o-n, but even then it's a mix of German and French in the ALSACE. So, we're moving on to Johnny Tremain, and maybe another Henty in True to the Old Flag.  Did I tell you we adore our kindles and are even tackling reading a longer paper book without text-to-speech just because we've extended our abilities (hard to explain- it's just a good thing).  We've also tweaked our schedules a bit and offered a quarter reward for the student who dawdles the least and finishes their work well, and ahead of the others.  It amazes me how focus is so much finer tuned when money is involved.
