A lot of our time this week was spent on memorizing Winter Tale’s lines for Shakespeare.

Week 12 Is it Christmas Break Yet?
“One that gives our himself Prince
Florizel, Son of Polixenes, with his princess,---she
The fairest I have yet beheld, ---desires access
To your high presence.”
In Geography we learned about Spice Wars and the Barbary pirates. Taking the role as sailor or pirate E-R and I-E
sailed around the Mediterranean, Northern Africa, all the way to Constantinople.
We continued on with studying the Reformation for History.
I also had the girls use their timelines to make mini timelines of what was happening during Martin Luther’s lifetime.
It was a great way to review our past studies and put into perspective all the different people and events we’ve studied.
Wednesday, A-M had a performance for her drama class which we had a lot of fun watching.
We’ve also been busy getting ready for Christmas—my favorite holiday! I’ve finally figured out out how to have the advent calendar I’ve been thinking about for 18+ years
Are you still working on school or has your Christmas break begun?
