We’re another week closer to the end of the school year!’
Turkey and Bunny were really hoping they were done with new material in math, and would just be doing review for the final weeks of the school year…and then they were hit with equations with three variables. I wasn’t sure any of us had the brain power to deal with that, but they learned how to do the problems quickly, and it really wasn’t that bad! They completed their creative writing course, by writing a poem in any style and about any topic they wanted to, and they did an excellent job!!! In history, they learned about the rise of the Turks as well as Spain…Spain during the time when the show at Medieval Times is set (they even read about the place after which our Kingdom of Navarra was modeled), which was kind of fun.
Ladybug learned how to figure interest over different periods of time in math. Her science lessons focused on horse behavior. She wrote a six paragraph essay about Marie Antoinette in writing. Her history lessons focused on Queen Elizabeth I and Shakespeare…she even read a shortened version of Macbeth.
Chickadee finished her last regular lesson in this year’s Explode the Code books, and she only has a review lesson left. She read some more books by herself, including one of Turkey’s favorites, Go, Dog, Go. She also started subtracting three-digit numbers in math.
I can’t believe how close we are to being done…but we still have quite a bit of work to plow through before we get our break!
