Hymn of the Week–“As with Gladness Men of Old” (Lutheran Service Book #397)
I’m beginning to think that taking such an extended Christmas break was a bad idea, because it was really hard to get back into a routine this week!
Turkey and Bunny graphed with the second derivative in calculus. They started a chapter on the structure of the brain in advanced biology. We picked up our reading of A Tale of Two Cities. Their study of US culture and geography focused on how different areas of the (not yet) country responded to the American Revolution.
Ladybug reviewed factoring in algebra. We started our 8th grade study of the US Constitution. We read about the Easter Uprising and the Treaty of Versailles in history. In science, she learned about speed and velocity. We continued our study of Treasure Island.
Chickadee multiplied money in math. She started a chapter about bats in science. We started reading A Bear Called Paddington. Her cursive handwriting has become extraordinarily neat!
We’re about halfway through the school year now, which is a struggle for me on several levels, starting with this period through the end of February is always a challenge for me, and more so now that we’re so limited in out-of-the-house activities. This certainly isn’t the way I wanted the last half of the last year Turkey and Bunny are homeschooled to go, but we’re going to make the best of it!
