I'm behind on my weekly reviews, so this is a catch-up post.  Feb-Mar seems to be super busy for us.

History: Reading through a book about the presidents of the U.S.

Science: worked through Chapter 7, Mammals (Abeka Order and Design)

Grammar: verb tenses, perfect tense

Art / Photography: working on her landscape watercolor, 2 photographs with repeating themes.

Piano

Actor's recording for the church musical

History: working through Story of the World vol. 1, 1 chapter per day

Classical Conversations:  we've completed through Week 18.  We're 3/4 of the way through our timeline memorization.

G:
She can make A-B patterns quite well with colored tiles or cubes
Continuing work on recognizing letters, letter sounds, drawing letters, and counting.
She can count to 12, most of the time now:)  (note: "12" is a hard concept.  She can count to 11 and then goes 14, 19, 24, 32, 49, 16, 18, 14...lol.  But she's beginning to use 12 more and more now)
