We’re desperately trying to finish up everything we have to do before the end of the school year!
Turkey and Bunny learned about vectors in math, which wasn’t too bad, but I think they’re a little scared about math and science next year, now! In chemistry, they learned about the factors that change the rate of a chemical reaction, and studied the pH scale a little bit. We’ve also had some really good discussions about To Kill a Mockingbird.
Ladybug read about the founding of Newfoundland in history. In science, she learned about how horses and people communicate, especially through body language. She read and analyzed Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Bells” in writing, which is one of my favorite poems to study, but does have the unfortunate side effect of getting stuck in my head! There was some peril in Brighty of the Grand Canyon, and we’re hoping everything turns out ok in the final two chapters!
Chickadee had a week of review. She only has one math lesson and a test left, plus a bit of spelling and handwriting. She did read a book for the first time (A Fly Went By) but I don’t think it really had any unfamiliar words, so it was pretty much just fun. Mostly, she’s just excited about being a second-grader soon!
We have just about seven days of school left…I can’t believe the 2018-19 school year is almost over!
