2016-17 School Year–Week Twenty-Three

Well, February is finally over, so there is that!

It was still a long week. We learned about Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses. More quadratic equations and fractions in math. Turkey and Bunny have continued to write about historical events in writing, and Ladybug has been learning how to diagram sentences that contain a direct address. Some basic physics in science, as well as more mollusks. Nearing the end of Treasure Island, and continuing to read through Greek Myths. WWII and the Holocaust in history. We had a field trip day on Thursday, and visited the Missouri Botanical Garden, the St. Louis Science Center (to see some props they have on display from the Harry Potter movies), and the Butterfly House at Faust Park, so that was a fun day (butterfly photo courtesy of Turkey).

I wish we had time for a break. Easter is pretty late this year, and Holy Week, which is our normal week for spring vacation is feeling like it’s forever and a day from now. But we’ll keep at it, I suppose, unless I get really desperate for a vacation!
