We had a short week because of our President Day’s holiday.
Tuesday we reviewed geography and then worked on art for the rest of the day. Art has recently gone by the wayside, so I decided it would be a great way to kick off our week. Our Molas projects turned out quite well.
On Wednesday we started the last book in the Singapore Primary math series. (I’m going to miss Singapore—It has served us well). And in true Singapore style, it started off with an awesome exploration exercise.
After measuring and comparing the perimeters and fold lines, E-R and I-E determined the perimeters were about 3 times as long as the fold lines thus discovering pi. Our new vocabulary radius, diameter, circumference, and pi.
Thursday we focused on the Hapsburg Family enjoying this awesome website. E-R also had her engineering lego class. This week the focus was on center of gravity.
Friday was a short day. After Shakespeare class, we took the afternoon off to get ready for A-M’s 16th birthday party.
We celebrated on Saturday with some fancy food and fancy dresses.
