Each week seems a bit crazier than the last!
Turkey and Bunny did begin conjugates in math, as promised. Fortunately, they mostly thought they weren’t too bad. Their history lessons focused on medieval India, particularly Java. They had their choice of writing either a horror or crime short story in creative writing. In science, they began dealing with polyatomic ions. They also finished the second act of Romeo and Juliet.
Ladybug thought math was interesting, because she got to work with base-2 this week. She finally got to meet the title character in Misty of Chincoteague. She learned about the Vikings, and a bit of Norse mythology in history. (I discovered how much of my knowledge of Norse mythology comes from the Marvel movies!) She also worked on rewriting sentences without using clichés.
Chickadee started subtraction in math! She began her second I Can Read It book, and was very excited to discover that the first story is about a family of her favorite animal (the elephant). She had her first handwriting lesson that was not straight review, and got to use one of her fancy pieces of handwriting paper, which was very fun.
Yesterday, we had a field trip to the most sincere pumpkin patch we could find, where we picked out what Turkey thinks is our best pumpkin yet (not the biggest, but the one with the most perfect shape), and his standards are very high! Since we waited to go after Moose was done with school, I’m not sure it counts as a school field trip, but I’m going to share a picture anyway!
I have a few fun things planned in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, including our annual nature walk, but I’m still hoping that we can keep going without taking a full fall break!
