MFW CtG/K Week 27: J-j Jewel, Elisha

4th/2nd Grade Creation to the Greeks

Isaiah 40:21-22

Do you not know? Do you not hear?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;


  • We read on Elisha's miracles and especially the story of Naaman
  • We also continued on Homer and we're so happy Odysseus came home.


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

Must have not smeared enough butter, the jello should be in ONE piece and not lumpy lumps. Anyway, the one with toothpicks is the vertebrate and the one without are invertebrates

no covering, no backbones (like the jelly fish) easy to crush

No backbones, but has covering (like crab) not as easy to crush

backbones (vertebrates) not as easy to crush

And we watched how the clam and octopus move


  • Rod and Staff 
  • Spelling Power for Big Bro
  • Spelling by Sight and Structure for Big Sis
  • Cursive for Big Sis. She practices her cursive while doing her Rod and Staff work.

Foreign Language

We started 康軒一下!!

We are on the topic of Spring and I'm glad to find some extra materials!

This story ties in well with "Jewel"

I realized they need to learn more about usage. They are so good with new words (reading and writing) but they are not good at using the words, so we're going to read more!


Drawing human beings

And we looked at the sculpture of Caligula

Have you wondered?

Kindergarten:J-j Jewel

Daddy got Lil Sis this from his business trip. Never a better timing!

I love that she used these stickers to make the page.

We actually started making the rock candy (Mom gave in to food coloring...yikes). But they took a long time and there is not enough crystals! I hope it works.

End product, not like the ones we saw on the web, and they are WAYYYYYY too sweet!!!!
But it was a good experiment, I suppose.
