This week has felt really busy!
Ladybug learned about the Christian Scientists and Scientology in her study of comparative religions this week. She calculated the area of different shapes in geometry. In astronomy, she read about wavelength and frequency. Her new biology chapter is about cells. She started adding direct objects to her sentence diagrams. We have made it to the part of Little Women where we want to put the book in the freezer, because Beth is really sick. We also did a lot of cooking from The Little Women Cookbook this week. We made apple turnovers for dessert one night, and Jo’s much-improved corned beef for a dinner. We also made a trio of recipes for lunch…roast beef picnic sandwiches, Jo’s shellfish relish, and cheese, butter, and celery sandwiches.
Chickadee made it to the end of the Israelites’ time in the desert in religion, and started the time of the Judges. She started making factor trees in math. She learned about the different species of sea turtles in science. She started identifying the complete predicate in a sentence in grammar. In geography, we visited Argentina, and made Argentine butter cookies and Dulche de Leche…Chickadee thought it was hilarious that we literally cooked a can!
I’m hoping that next week, we’ll get to go pumpkin picking!
