Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia
Our first week of State Study! euge! My version of MFW uses a Dover Coloring Book for the state pages. I printed the state flags (onto sticker paper) from Enchanted Learning.
They wanted to make a "State Book" instead of putting the pages into their history notebooks. And these are the books I got from the library. I went ahead and got all of the 13 colonies.
In science, we will be coordinating bird study to match the state birds. Most of our readings come from Birds, Nests, and Eggs. This week we read about the American Gold Finch.
This week's picture study: A Sunday Afternoon on the island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat. We read the info here, looked at it "far" and "close" here...
We had a pretty light week. Daddy was cut to 30 hours at work for a few weeks, so we have to adjust to a new schedule.
*B* took chapter 3 math test and did ok. I wasn't very happy, but at least it was something fairly easy. She has a hard time "getting" easy stuff. Anyway, so she also did some Math Mammoth worksheets for extra practice. After I felt she really grasped estimation, we moved on. She completed lesson 27 (meter) and lesson 28 (decimeter).
*C* started Horizons Math grade 2. He did lessons 1-7. He can't wait to get to lesson 10, because it's a test! Crazy boy!
...And that's all she wrote!
