Another week down. Here's what Mj did this week.
Bible: Mj learned about Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem and we talked about His Second Coming. Mj memorized Psalm 24:10 "Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah."
English: Mj learned about adjectives. He learned that we can use our 5 senses to help us name adjectives. They answer the questions what kind? and how many? And he used a thesaurus to find more exciting adjectives to use in a sentence.
Math: Mj's chapter was about geometry. We discussed plane shapes and solid shapes. He learned about symmetry, congruent shapes, and similar shapes. He also learned about perimeter.
Heritage Studies: Mj learned about the beginning of the Revolutionary War. We discussed Paul Revere's ride, the shot heard round the world, and minute men.
Science: Mj learned about habitats, environments, and biomes. He also learned how water, light, and soil affect and animal's environment.
The best part of the week was our co-op's field trip to the veterinarian. I must say, I thought it was pretty cool, too.
The kids got to see a dog getting his teeth pulled and cleaned.
Mj got to sit in on a surgery. They were spaying a dog. He was in there for 10 min and I had to almost drag him out. (I was not about to go in there - YUCK!).
