1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 7: Jesus Born, Ear


This week we memorized verses for the Roman Road to Salvation. I thought this will be quite a good tool for them, since we were already memorizing some Roman verses.

We did
Rom 3:23, 6:23, 5:8 and 10:9-10

Lil Sis memorized Proverbs 10:19
 Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut.

We also started to read on the account of Jesus' birth and life from the gospels.

We learnt about Augustus Caesar as the Emperor and also the philosophers.
We put up the timeline for Jesus' birth and we talked about why it is 5 B.C. and not 1 A.D.

And we made a dessert for Roman Road! =) We adapted the recipe from here

The Sand Layer (crushed graham crackers)

Mortar and rocks. (pudding and chocolate chips)

cement (cream cheese and whipped cream)

stone slabs (Marie biscuits)

Most of the Bronze Bow this week was listened to the digital audiobook we borrowed from the library

The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English. Big Sis did a test for Chapter 1.

For Lil Sis I found this site with great phonics printables!! They are REALLY good "books" for practice and they are free. We practiced the "oo" sounds and the "or", "ar" books.

The older two had their review test for Lesson 1-4 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese.

We learnt two more Latin words "mille" and "annus" this week.

We did Spelling Power.

Lil Sis continued to do worksheets on addition.

We learnt about the Ear this week and it was super fun!

This is the model we made.

We learnt that the size of the outer ear DOES matter when it comes to hearing.

We also learnt about balance with regards to the ear.


We drew books this week, learning from the vanishing line.
