Well, to start with, we are doing research papers for our oldest two on electricity and chemical analysis and that has been turned into bunny trail reports from last weeks schooling. I am also trying to help my youngest in school, move up in his reading abilities by adding a new twist to what I give him for school work. My other two are just doing their regular work for the week. :)
History is the rise of Islam and math contributions. Science is chemical changes that cannot be undone. We are ready to start multiplication with my 2nd grader and subtraction with my kindergartener. We will be reading some of the thousand nights in literature to kind of go along with the history.
Today we did MLK and a little about the inauguration. This week, we'll be studying Colonial Children. We'll be making some bread and butter and clothespin dolls, playing some games and other activities. We'll do multiplication for all three. We'll also be putting together our solar system model this week.
