1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 12: Flavian Dynasty, Colosseum, Five Good Emperors, Brains, Cain/Abel, Noah's Ark


BIBLE


We memorized Rom 12:4-5 and revised the verses before

Lil Sis continued to memorize Proverbs 12:15
Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to others.

We read Revelations and the letters to the churches.


For Lil Sis, she read the Cain and Abel Story and Noah's Ark in her reader.




HISTORY

This week we began Twice Freed. We really enjoy these historical fiction. Twice Freed has shorter chapters so it is easier to read.



We continued reading Galen and the Gateway to Medicine, but I did summarize some of them.


We learnt about the Flavian Dynasty and the five good rulers who followed.
We also learnt about the chariot races and the Colosseum.
And we read the Androcles and the Lion

We listened to the first chapter of Story of the World. (We bought the audiobook version as well)



LANGUAGE
The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

Lil Sis worked on her phonics, bible books and bible notebook


The older two started Lesson 6 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis practiced more of her bopomofo


We learnt two more Latin words "manus" and "pes, pedis" this week.

We did Spelling Power.



MATH
Lil Sis continued to do worksheets on subtraction. She is getting independent on her Daily Calendar.



SCIENCE


The Body Book suggested using the cards as templates to identify the areas of the brain



That was what we did and it was very fun for the kids


We also learnt about the spinal cord.




ART




We enjoyed drawing the Colosseum from Draw and Write Through History
