MFW Exploration to 1850 WEEK 19-20: American Revolution, Birds, Fish

Bible

This week we finished revising and memorizing up to the whole of James 2
We sang Hark the Herald Angels Sing for Christmas.


History
We continued learning about the Revolution. These two weeks we had a lot of Christmas breaks.

We watched quite a few videos from this site about Washington. They were very interesting!



Language
We continued with Spelling power and Rod and Staff.


I also felt that Lil Sis needed more help in reading, so we started a reading log and she would read to me everyday for a few pages.


Science
This week we learnt about birds.

Birds' digestive system.

We started learning about fish and will continue in Week 21.

Art
We are using Artistic Pursuits K-3 (Book 2) this year.

We learnt about Anguissola, one of the few well-known women artists of the Renaissance.


We did a watercolor over oil pastel drawing. Didn't work THAT well for most of them. We needed tempera paints instead.



Books we read for leisure
