Hymn of the Week–“I Bind unto Myself Today” (Lutheran Service Book #604)
In between fun events, we did a lot of work this week. Turkey and Bunny faced their most challenging lesson in calculus to date, which focused on definite integrals. They finished reading The Great Gatsby. In psychology, they learned about different kinds of therapies. They did one more review of the structures of the heart in advanced biology.
Ladybug learned how to to show inequalities on a number line in algebra. She also learned about and/or compound inequalities as well as conjunctions. She wrote a short paper on the bombing of Pearl Harbor in writing. In science, she started learning about light. She and Chickadee learned about the fight for freedom in the Belgian Congo and Juan Perón in Argentina in history…we’re firmly in “We Didn’t Start the Fire” territory!
Chickadee did a lot of review in math this week, including Roman numerals, division with remainders, and converting fractions to decimals. She learned about various insect defenses in science. We finished reading Charlotte’s Web…the final paragraph of the last chapter always makes me cry, and then it occurred to me that this is the last time I’ll be teaching Charlotte’s Web, so I cried even more!
Another four-day week to look forward to next week (and another birthday!), and then spring break!
