MFW CtG/K Week 33: Q-q Quail, Nehemiah

4th/2nd Grade Creation to the Greeks


  • We read Nehemiah and were very impacted by the fact that Nehemiah had to work hard to rebuild the walls AS WELL as guard against the enemies at the same time!
  • We also learnt about the Olympics and watched many videos on the past Olympic games.
  • We read on the City of Athens and how the Greek lived.


We have stopped doing Science in the Beginning and will do some of the experiments for Day 6 (the human body ones) for next year.

Since we came back from Singapore and the kids did their Math and English work in the morning (jet lag), they have been loving that idea, so when they woke at 6am, they would do their own Math and English work. I still have to look through them and maybe go through some corrections with them in the afternoon, but it sure made our school time MUCH shorter! I was very impressed with their determination and initiative.

Kindergarten:Q-q Quail

We read the Biggest House in the World
and we had some interesting conversations about contentment when the kids were wishing they have a bigger house with a room for everyone. (The four kids now sleep in the same room)

We talked about being content and not grumble. Yertle the Turtle would have been a great book in the topic, but we already read it some time back.
