2019-20 School Year–Week Twenty-Seven

I’m not really even sure what to say about this week.

We got a lot done. But it was all while the SAT (on the schedule for tomorrow…maybe?) hung over Turkey’s and Bunny’s heads, and the threat of coronavirus was on all of our minds. And this afternoon we found out that the public schools here (the whole state, actually) will be closed for at least the next two weeks because of it. That might not directly impact our school (although we are looking forward to having Moose home with us!), because we will carry on, but it’s still a cloud casting a shadow on everything.

Anyway…Turkey and Bunny worked with natural logarithms in pre-calculus. In physics, they finished the chapter on waves. They also finished The Merchant of Venice. And in US history, they started learning about Reconstruction.

Ladybug learned about slope and y-intercept in pre-algebra, and she also worked with adding and subtracting equations. She too finished a chapter in science. in history she read about the formation of the country of Haiti. And we started reading The Phantom Tollbooth, which is one of my all-time favorite books.

Chickadee reviewed measuring with a ruler in math, and continued working with simple equations. She finished reading the Frog and Toad series of books. She’s working on memorizing a new (and quite long!) poem in language arts.

Who knows what to expect in the weeks ahead? I had already planned to have our spring break next week, so at least I can catch my breath as the world figures out what is going on!
