MFW CtG/K Week 26: R-r Rock, Elijah/Elisha

4th/2nd Grade Creation to the Greeks

Psalms 1

Blessed is the man
    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.

The wicked are not so,
    but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;

for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.


Bible/History


  • We read on Elisha's calling and end of Elijah's life
  • We also continued on Homer and had a really great laugh when we read how Odysseus was blown away by the wind RIGHT when he was SOOOO near to home
  • We read and talked about Hinduism and Buddhism (and on India's Caste system)

Math/Science



  • Day 5 of Creation (Swimmers and Flyers)
  • We learnt about Osmosis


The potatoes pieces fit perfectly in cookie cutter

Submersion in different waters

The one in the salt water

The one in the fresh water
  • So we learnt that osmosis is the process whereby water is drawn to the solutes. And that fish in freshwater urinates more because of the amount of water going into their body.
  • I know osmosis (kind of). I did an experiment on osmosis a long time ago in Secondary School (Junior High)...what was it again?!? And I have NO IDEA what it was. Now I do. ha. RE-EDUCATION everyday.

Osmosis and Diffusion
Next. Egg in vinegar. After the night, the shell dissolves away and I was awed.

Blue Dye

Osmosis brought the water (with the dye) through the semi-permeable membrane and made the egg blue

Place in freshwater

Diffusion. Solutes travel to where more solvent is. HA. Never knew that. Scientifically at least.


This show the osmosis process

I had so much fun.

Big Sis is a real character. And mind you, she did not waste any bit of time even with all these....gizmos...

Only Big Sis will make stains into pictures.

Foreign Language


We finished 康軒一上!!

They learnt 85 new words (read and write) and they learnt a ton of vocabulary.
I am very proud of them.
I realized they are very good at learning new words, but they are poor in utilizing them. So the next step, we'll improve of usage! =)


Art/Music


Art took a rest this week.


Have you wondered?


Kindergarten:R-r Rock

What do you do when your alphabet cards are in a mess? Sing the A-a Apple song and let the child pick the letters as a revision. Best way to tidy up.

Crystals making!! (I bought a kit from the Dollar Store)

Add chemicals (according to package...sounds so scary)

Add rock

Add mix
Next day.
About few days. Not that pretty like the package...

Bottom.


We used the stamping set to do some R words

Read some books

Used the stamp to find words

Asked child to write the beginning letter on top of other words


Rock painting!


And we watched some really fun videos!!



Hilarious song
