It’s always hard to get back to work after a break, especially with Christmas so close, but we did our best!
Ladybug read about the Eastern Orthodox Church in her study of denominations. She learned how to calculate the volume of cylinders in geometry. In biology, she read about RNA transcription and translation. We reviewed linking verbs in grammar, as well as predicate nominatives and predicate adjectives. She wrote a detailed description of her thumb in writing. She finished Beowulf and wrote her final essay about the character of Wiglaf.
I had Chickadee skip ahead in her overview of the Bible so we could read the stories of John the Baptist and Jesus foretold as we work our way through Advent. She practiced more long division in math…she’s caught on to it pretty quickly so far! In science she read about true fish, starting with bony fish. In Greek mythology, we read the story of Prometheus and Epimetheus and the creation of man and animals, among other things.
And, a little fun at the end of the week…today Chickadee and I baked chocolate sea salt rugelach:
One week of regular school and one week of Christmas school and then…vacation!
