Week 7 LG: Babylon, Assyria, and More Big Cats

Benny continued working with fractions this week in Singapore math focusing on mixed numbers and improper fractions. He finished the regular problems in the last review section of CWP 3 and has only the challenging ones left before moving on to the next book.

His BTS focused on congruent and non-congruent shapes made from dividing squares or rectangles. He completed another MindBenders puzzle as well.

He finished his second unit in R&S 4 as well as his second SWO E lesson. He began reading Lad: A Dog independently, and we continued The Golden Goblet as our read aloud selection. For CW, he analyzed the fable "The Wind and the Sun" and completed his regular copywork and dictation.

In Latin, he worked with 2nd declension masculine nouns and the present tense conjugation of sum, esse.

All of the history reading this week came from SOTW 1. We covered chapters 7 and 8 on Hammurabi and the Babylonians, Shamsi Adad and the Assyrians, and the "Epic of Gilgamesh". He completed narrations on all three topics as well as the mapwork for both chapters. DH was off on Wednesday, so he skipped the hands on activity to spend time with him.

His reading in Zoology 3 covered tigers, bobcats, cougars, lynx, and hyenas.

Henry continued working on sounding out 3 letters words in Phonics Pathways. We continued our Bible readings, but didn't start a new chapter book this week. I took a break from scheduled readings and let him pick whatever he wanted instead. He also completed some more work out of his Kumon books.
