1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 21: castles, crusades, David and Solomon

BIBLE

We memorized Philippians 2:3-4


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

We read about Elizabeth of Hungary.


For Lil Sis, we read about Saul, David and Goliath, and Solomon







HISTORY

We learnt about the Crusades, Magna Carta, Robin Hood and William Tell



We designed our coat of arms



And we continued to read Door in the Wall

WE LOVE this rendition of William Tell's Overture. So funny.



LANGUAGE
The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

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


The older two had their test for Lesson 7 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis did practice on bopomofo


We learnt two more Latin words "jingo, junctum" and "ignis" this week. 
We did Spelling Power.


MATH
We continued good practice.


SCIENCE
We are on to Astronomy!! We used the Apologia Exploring Creation with Astronomy and I like it.

We did the mnemonics

We made models (did not do any 3D ones but it is good)

I like it that as I taught we did a lot of "tell me what you learnt". The kids had good questions and we had good discussions.



ART
Besides the Coat of Arms, we did castle drawing from here.
