Reviewing multiplication facts & strategies. Going thru Math Mammoth Add/Sub 3. Did 2 Paragraph Editing pages this week, and wrote a thank you note to the ballet. Did Hamlet quotes in Familiar Quotations (watched Hamlet & now the quotes make sense!).
Skip counting by 4s & 4s facts. Going thru MM Add/Sub 3 (but slower pace, & just started this week). Did 2 pages in English (subjects & predicates). Did Isaiah - Lamentations quotes in Familiar Quotations.
Reading a book about Mammals for science.
Read about William Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth, Walter Raleigh, & Newfoundland in History this week.
Watched Hamlet (modern clothing rendition with David Tennant, aka Dr Who, as Hamlet) and had a good time quoting Hamlet this week.
Watched Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead (comedy based on Hamlet - lots of gems here: science discoveries, grammar, and philosophy).
Practiced skip counting by 2's to 200, 4's to 40, and 5's to 200 this week all while tossing a bean bag to each other. The kids really enjoy doing this, and it's solidifying those math facts!
We did 2 art projects this week from How to Teach Art to Children.
Went to Cinco de Mayo celebration, learned why we celebrate it (a small bit of Mexican/French history). Left early because the 7yo had a stomach ache, and the 9yo learned that she needs to be kind, not selfish, when Mom has her hands full & when lil sis isn't feeling well (the lesson came with a price, unfortunately).
As long as she is half naked on carpet, she can rise up on hands & knees, and rock back & forth, and bring her knees up in one "crawl" (there she gets stuck, lol). She can scoot her bum in a circle. She is starting to enjoy eating meals with us at the table (not sure how much she is eating) - gave her pieces of egg, cheese, & ground turkey meat, also some bready type things.
