Memory Work - I added the signs of the zodiac this week because she was interested in them and who we knew under each sign.
Phonics - We have reached the final section, today's lesson included homonyms.
First Language Lessons - Lesson 64-66, we are doing seasons and abbreviations.
Writing with Ease - Completed week 21 of copy work and narration exercises from Tom Sawyer excerpts.
Latin (Song School Latin) - We learned how to say I eat, I drink, food, supper and water, how the word for water (aqua) ties to aquarium and the phrase et cetera.
French (Nallenart) - The focus this week was feelings and sizes and how to pronounce them when referring to masculine and feminine objects.
Math - Math Mammoth 1A number bar counting and sums up to 7. I am going to jump back and forth between 1A and 1B because I want to introduce new subjects such as clock and money while we are working through the addition and subtraction units. It will lessen the monotony of some of the lessons I think.
History (Story of the World) - We finished chapter 20 and learned about the Greek alphabet in which we wrote our names and the Olympics. We are going to start Black Ships Before Troy once we finish our current history read aloud.
Science (Elemental) - We studied shrimp, crabs and spiders this week. All of the above make my skin crawl so it wasn't the most fun chapter for me to teach. We are almost done with the animals unit and will move on to the body within the next two weeks.
Our final two postcards of the first batch we sent through postcrossing arrived at their destination in the Germany and China. It's neat because once they are received the receiver enters them into the website and you get a nice little message from the receiver via email thanking you and commenting on what you wrote.
