I respectfully ask that you not pin pictures of my children to Pinterest. Thank you!
|The Huascar - an iron-clad Peruvian ship|
Another busy two weeks; Just getting it done.
Things that were scheduled:
Language Arts (Grammar with Writing and Reading for both; Spelling for Soprano)
For reading, Soprano made an eight-panel, folded mini book, drawing out the main events from chapters 14-17. (top)
Greek and Computer Science (Tenor), American Sign Language, Photography, and Sewing (Soprano)
Sewing project #2 - a book cover:
We tackled more world history in weeks 11 and 12. We're past the American Civil War and heading towards the turn of the century. The world was growing by leaps and bounds (industrially) and of course, money was a huge factor for so many of the conflicts.
Bible: This year we will be learning (reviewing) basic Christian beliefs and memorizing key Bible passages. We learned (reviewed from previous Bible memory) Romans 12:1-2.
History and Geography:
I was helping my folks get ready for an impending move so we ended up skipping a lot of activities because we weren't at home. In fact, we didn't do any of the week 11 suggestions. In week 12, we sort of made a model of the Huascar.
They took a shortcut through the Suez Canal,
and made wanted posters for Ned Kelly. (That guy had some really rotten luck. I'd love to read more about him and see if he truly brought any of his troubles on himself or if the police/government just had it out for him.)
Science:We're also using the World of Science reading assignments to review what we learned this summer.
Art: We learned about Holman Hunt, nature studies with the color green, and painting with greens
|This happened at the end of a long day and longer week. They didn't finish and when I went to check on them, they had already washed out their brushes. I didn't have the energy to fight to get them to finish. So this is it. :)|
You can see them all in my Youtube playlist for weeks 1-16.
