1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 18: manuscripts, norsemen, muscles, promiseland


We memorized 1 Cor 12:6-8

We continued to read on Luke and the life of Jesus.

We also read the stories of how the monks wrote manuscripts and how the first translations of the Bible began.

For Lil Sis, she read about the story of Manna, 10 commandments and the spies to the promiseland.

She is getting better at her reading.

I really really like the Bible Reader. It is such a great way to teach the kids reading!!


We learnt about the Medieval monks and monasteries and the Norsemen(Vikings)

Using playdough to write their names in Viking Runes.

We started reading The Door in the Wall.

And we learnt chess from this app! =) It was real fun. We got it for free. Now it's $4.99.

The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

Lil Sis worked on her phonics, bible books and bible notebook
We learnt the sound "ow" for snow, and since Baby Sis is doing "Winter" unit for her preschool, Lil Sis spent a few days reading this book
Really good book for her level.

The older two continued on Lesson 7 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis did a lot of revision on bopomofo

We learnt two more Latin words "scriptum" and "ad" this week. 
We did Spelling Power.

Lil Sis was doing graphs on Singapore Math 1B 

We learnt about the muscles this week
The "relaxed" muscle

The "contracted" (shortened) muscle

The biceps "relaxed"

The biceps "contracted" to bend the arm

we are ALL done with our anatomy model!!

Time to say bye bye. This is the best I could do to keep the model. Not the neatest I think.

We had SOOOO much fun doing the illuminated Manuscript writing (I didn't think we would)

Lil Sis'. Lil Sis had such a great idea of using her glitter pens for the "illuminating" part. It turned out extremely well.
