It’s hard to believe, but we’re already about 1/5 of the way through our school year!
Math has continued to go extremely well. Turkey and Bunny have been working with complementary, supplementary, and vertical angles. Ladybug has been working on word problems, and Chickadee is still practicing counting by tens.
History has been fun. Ladybug learned about some things her older siblings already covered, including the Epic of Gilgamesh. Turkey and Bunny, meanwhile, learned about something Ladybug already studied…Hammurabi’s Code. They are currently reading about the Hyksos and King Minos of Crete.
They may not like it, but Turkey and Bunny have continued doing well with diagramming sentences. Much to their annoyance, Ladybug keeps mentioning how much she enjoys doing so (although that’s not always so obvious to her teacher!). Chickadee has added her first vowel to her letter studies this week, and can now read words like mat and rat! She’s very excited to finally be reading something!!!
Today we took a break from everything but math to attend the Divine Service for the feast of St. Michael and All Angels at the LC-MS International Center, where our pastor happened to be preaching. This is one of my favorite church days of the year, so I was very happy to be there. We also took a walk through the museum while we were in the building. Even though we’ve visited several times in the past, we always notice something new!
It’s finally starting to cool off…hopefully we’ll get to do some of the outdoor field trips I’ve been planning soon!
