1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 19: Vikings, feudalism, reproduction, Strange battle

BIBLE

We memorized 1 Cor 12:1-8


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

Lil Sis was sick this week, she only did the battle of Jericho.



HISTORY

We learnt about the vikings, Battle of Hastings, and the beginning of the Medieval era.

We started reading The Door in the Wall.

Big Bro's little knight collection came to school.

We learnt to play the Nine Men Morris. Quite fun!

LANGUAGE
The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

Lil Sis worked on her phonics, bible books and bible notebook
We played the BAM sight word game I found online. Within a time limit (we set 3 minutes), she picked sight words from the bag and read them. If she picked "BAM", all the cards go back into the bag and she started again. She was really good!


The older two continued on Lesson 7 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese 


We learnt two more Latin words "jacio" and "pono positum" this week. 
We did Spelling Power.


MATH
Lil Sis went on to numbers this week for Singapore Math.



SCIENCE
This week mommy sat with each kid individually to read the book "the Wonderful Way Babies are made".
There was no new information for Big Bro, but we reiterate the open conversation policy. For Big Sis, the information was new and she was intrigued. We scaled down quite a bit for Lil Sis and Baby Sis looked at the pictures and wanted to go back to diapers. =)



ART
We read about tapestries and attempted to draw the Bayeux Tapestry



We also watched a really interesting video on tapestry making.
