BIBLE

We memorized Philippians 2:5-8 and reviewed the Romans 12 verses on Fighter's Verses App.

Lil Sis memorized Prov 12:16


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

For Lil Sis, we read about Daniel, Esther and the story of Angel talking to Mary



This angel "craft was taken from here.

We watched the Esther's story on Lego.




HISTORY

We learnt about the Monguls, Russians and Marco Polo.

We looked at pictures and videos of the Forbidden City of Ming Dynasty online.

We continued to read Dangerous Journey. We really like this book!






LANGUAGE
The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

Lil Sis worked on her phonics, bible books and bible notebook. She finished her workbook and now we will do bible reading, bible notebook and reading everyday.
Reading from Frog and Toad

I used the erasing method for her to memorize the verse

We are two days from 100th day!! (actually we have passed 100th day sometime back, but Lil Sis does not do her calendar everyday)


The older two continued on  Lesson 8 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis did practice on bopomofo


We learnt two more Latin words "trans" and "dormio" this week. 
We did Spelling Power. Daddy played "spelling bee" with the kids in the weekend and was very impressed with them!

Big Sis is reading the Boxcar Children series now and Big Bro enjoyed some of the books in the book basket.


MATH
We continued to practice Math.


SCIENCE
We learnt about Venus this week. This is "lava" flowing from the volcanoes.

The "lava" hardened into rocks.

They created comics. It was fun to see.




LOVE their summary pages.

We used the Seymour Books for teaching planets. They have wonderful pictures


ART

We drew the Florentine Towers



When they spent time in their work, they are very proud of the results.
