2020-21 School Year–Week Two

Hymn of the Week: “With the Lord Begin Your Task” (Lutheran Service Book #869)

The second week of school is complete!

Turkey and Bunny continued to review many concepts from the last few years of math in calculus. They finished the first chapter of their advanced biology textbook. We had an interesting conversation about ethics in psychology, and also some interesting discussions about early American history. They completed the second act of Macbeth.

Ladybug also did review in math, focusing on exponents and radicals. She learned about thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes in science. In history, she and Chickadee read about David Livingstone’s exploration of Africa. She made it halfway through the third act of As You Like It.

Chickadee started reviewing multiplication facts in math. She finished the first chapter in her science book, learning about bird habitats and extinction. She started doing dictation in writing. We read more about what daily life looked like on a farm in New York in Farmer Boy.

Here’s a look at something fun the Fab Five are working on this year. I bought them each a copy of The Illuminated Hymnal to color in while we learn about different hymns from Lutheran Service Book each week. Some weeks will be student’s choice, because the hymns in this book don’t always match up with the hymns I’ve selected, but this week they were able to color a beautiful picture to accompany “With the Lord Begin Your Task.”

I’m hoping for some pleasant weather soon, so we can get outside and do something fun in lieu of our usual museum field trips!
