Math and Logic
Benny spent the week in Singapore math working through the first section of the IP book. He also completed the first of two review sections in his CWP text.
Latin and Fine Arts
In Latin he began learning how to declining 1st declension nouns, ten new nouns, and basic characteristics of Latin nouns.
His art is in the previous post. For music, we read the first few pages of The Story of the Orchestra and listened to the first track of the accompaniying CD.
Science this week covered wolves, foxes, jackals, dingoes, raccoon dogs, and African wild dogs. There weren't any associated activities this week.
Henry and I had a great week and read a ton of books. We finished My Father's Dragon and began Elmer and the Dragon by Gannett. For history, we read Croco'nile by Gerrard and Bill and Pete Go Down the Nile by de Paola. For science we read Dogs and Wolves by Gibbons. Our country for the week in geography was China. We read Count Your Way Through China by Haskins, Daisy Comes Home by Brett, Tikki Tikki Tembo by Mosel, The Magic Boat by Demi, The Story of Chopsticks by Compestine, The Story of Noodles by Compestine, and The Luminous Pearl by Torre.
Schoolwise, we reviewed some of last week's consonant pages, completed the maze section of Visual Perceptual Skill Building 1, matched shapes and decided which shape did not belong in Building Thinking Skills Primary, skip counted to 100 by 5's, played a number matching game, went for a walk to look for frogs (just for fun), and played a game of Trouble.
