MFW CtG/K Week 9:T-t Turtle/Jacob leaving Laban, Descendants, Joseph

4th/2nd Grade Creation to the Greeks

Ten Commandments:

I am the LORD your shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol.
You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain
Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy


  • Discussed and memorized the 4th commandment and revised the past memory verses. 
  • We learnt about Jacob's family, and Joseph's story
  • We also talked about cloaks, Ancient Egyptian's homes and Abraham's descendants


  • Water and Air: Destroying water

This experiments requires dissolving different amounts of epsom salt in water and see how water molecule is destroyed.
 This experiment also teaches me about reading the instructions carefully. At first we put 1/4 CUP (instead of teaspooon) of salt in one and 3/4 CUP in another. NO WAY this will dissolve. We'll be making crystals.

Now this is better

No salt, no reaction.

1/4 tsp salt, little bubbles

3/4 tsp salt, a lot of bubbles


  • We continued to work on nouns.
  • Spelling Power for Big Bro
  • Spelling by Sight and Structure for Big Sis
  • We also learnt the Greek word "phobos" and did our English from the Roots Up notebook page. We also revised the past words. 
  • We continued Treasures of the Snow (Another great book!)

Foreign Language

We finished Lesson 2 on 康軒一上. The kids are retaining a lot of words!


This is mommy's painting

Quite a number of things were happening this week and we slacked on art and Science. But we did do the Vivaldi's Autumn painting (I asked them to paint this time)

Have you wondered?
  • Laban was angry Jacob stole his idols. In the end Rachel was the one to steal them. WHAT's UP with God's people having idols!!?? Big Bro thinks Rachel stole them so that her father will not worship them anymore
Kindergarten: T-t Turtle
Read Little Engine that Could and did activities from here

We started blended ladder! She took a little while but I think we are getting there!

Hey! Sam and Ann our favorite!

She had enough of finger paint printing. =)

Blended ladder.
T Book

We also listened to Al Gore read Brave Irene (love that book) and we watched Tortoise and the Hare (our video playlist is here)
These are such fun books to read!
