Hymn of the Week–“Listen, God is Calling” (Lutheran Service Book #833)
The weather has finally cooled off (in the mornings, at least!), so we’ve added our two-mile walk back into our school days!
Turkey and Bunny reviewed natural logarithms in calculus this week. They continued to read Jane Eyre, and they seem to like it more than they expected they would. In advanced biology, they started memorizing some of the more familiar bones in the skeleton. They read about Gestalt psychology and looked at some illustrations that illustrate figure-ground perception…some of them were pretty hard to figure out!
Ladybug reviewed graphing in algebra. She wrote an essay about Kublai Khan in writing. We continued to study the hydrologic cycle in science, reading about glaciers and icebergs as well as groundwater. In other news, the backordered new edition of her science text finally shipped! Her character list for her study of The Trojan War is getting long!
Chickadee started working with ten thousands numbers in math. In science she began learning about the different types of feathers, as well as the structure of the feather. She was very excited to have a review lesson in spelling, because that meant she didn’t have a test! She finished learning each individual letter in cursive, and is going to move on to writing whole words next week.
Here’s a look at one of the more whimsical things I came across in our school room this week:
I’m really looking forward to the start of October next week (although I am a little concerned about how fast this school year is flying by)!
