We’re back to work after our Christmas break!
We started a whole bunch of new stuff this week. Turkey and Bunny had the most new material to cover. They got to work with applications using percents in math, which is a very practical, real-life topic. They learned about the succession to Muhammad and the Rashidun Caliphate in history. They were introduced to stoichiometry in chemistry. They also started reading The Scarlet Letter.
Ladybug practiced finding perimeter, area, and volume in math. She started a literature study of King of the Wind. In science, she read about mules, burros, and donkeys. She learned about Genghis and Kublai Khan in history.
Chickadee probably had the easiest week. She finished her second I Can Read It book. She worked on putting dollars and cents together in math. We also started reading a new book in the Grandma’s Attic Series: (Sixteen And) Away from Home. We also enjoyed the unseasonably warm weather earlier this week (a stark contrast to the winter storm warning and predicted 9-12 inches of snow we have right now), and took a walk around the Missouri Botanical Garden.
I have a few more fun field trips planned for next week…stay tuned!
