We’ve made it past the halfway point of February!
Ladybug graphed parallel and perpendicular lines as well as inequalities in algebra 2. She learned about solubility in chemistry, and did an experiment with various temperatures of water and table salt to discover how temperature effects solubility. In creative writing, she wrote a poem about an object. The trial began in To Kill a Mockingbird. She read about Krum, Khan of the Bulgarians, who was known as “The New Sennacherib,” in history.
Chickadee added and subtracted mixed numbers in math. We started reading The Journey Begins, the first of the Kaya books in the American Girl series…we’re hoping to read through all of the historical characters’ stories. She started a chapter on reptiles in science, beginning with snakes. She learned how to properly write direct and indirect quotations in sentences in grammar. In history, she learned about Siddhartha Gautama, and how Buddhism came to be.
We also did a simple but fun craft for Valentine’s Day. I had some wooden hearts left over from Christmas, so Chickadee and Ladybug painted them in shades of white, pink, and red…I really like how Ladybug made hers look like candy melts!
Just one more full week of February to go!
