This week, Ladybug learned about Paschal’s triangle in algebra two, something I think is really cool. In chemistry she learned the difference between polar and non-polar covalent bonds. She read about the Ostrogoths (again?) and Byzantium (also again?) in history. She started a literature study of The Scarlet Letter. We finished reading book one of The Fellowship of the Ring. We worked on our second The Nightmare Before Christmas dinner featuring cucumber and mint limeade love potion, Jack Skellington Shepherd’s Pie (she did a great job with the details on his face!), and The Mayor Two-Faced black and white cookies.
Chickadee is working toward long division in math. She also reviewed division problems with money. In science, we started a chapter on marsupials…so far, we’ve read about kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, and koalas. We read about some doughnut trouble in Homer Price. She learned how to diagram predicate nominatives and predicate adjectives in grammar. She was very excited that she finally got to read about King Tut in history. We also covered Moses and the Exodus.
It’s hard to believe October is already about halfway done, but we’ve still got a lot of stuff to look forward to!
