1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 20: Castles, Chivalry, monks, Sam/Ruth/Samson

BIBLE

We memorized 1 Cor 12:1-8


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

We also read about St Francis of Assisi


And this is the song we listened to.
For Lil Sis, we read about Samuel, Ruth and Samson.



This is a sewing page. =)



HISTORY

We learnt about the castles, the knights and chivalry.
We made this pop up card. Very cool. But mom did much of the work.
The kids did enjoy using the "pen knife" (as Singaporeans would call it).

We had the monastery lunch. We bought canned split pea soup. It is mommy's favorite soup, but none of the kids enjoyed it. I gave them crusty bread instead of dark bread. So, that saved part of lunch.
We were absolutely silent for 5 minutes. The kids would not be able to take the silence for the entire lunch. After that, they said, it felt like we were mad at each other. =)

Then we had the medieval meal that we did not last week. I made "hand pies", thick corn chowder (they probably served stew instead) in bread bowl, and we served ginger ale. We should not have plates, but I didn't think I would be able to stand the mess.

And we ate in kind of darkness too.
No, white bread would not have been in the menu, but that's what we have.

It was fun doing the meals even though the kids were not fond of the food.

We continued to read the Door in the Wall.

We also listened to some Gregory chants.



LANGUAGE
The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

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


The older two finished up Lesson 7 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis did practice on bopomofo


We learnt two more Latin words "cum" and "figo, fixum" this week. 
We did Spelling Power.


MATH
Lil Sis was enjoying Singapore Math 1B 


SCIENCE
We had fun talking about genes and hormones.

Then we did the activity to talk about boys and girls.




ART
We used sharpies and foil (Big Sis chose plastic) to make stained glass window project. It was really fun!
