Math : Reviewed our time tables, did splashmath.com, etc as usual. We did mixed problems using all 4 processes, and volume measurement and money-counting worksheets.
Social Studies : Located where we lived on a map and a globe, discussed the climate of our area as well as important geography (lakes, rivers, mountains) nearby. Discussed how seasons work in our area. She made an entry in her journal about her enjoying time outside during her favorite season. (She drew herself at the beach in the middle of summer.)
Science : We watched videos and read about spiders homes. She was wary about studying spiders at first because she's scared of them, but she enjoyed learning more about them in the end. She also drew a beautiful picture of a spider web in a tree in a forest.
Health : We discussed how to relax and cool down in times of stress, and practiced meditation. She wrote about ways to calm down and relax in her journal.
Art : Nothing special this week, most of our extra time was spent preparing for our special Holiday set next week!
Music : We used rhythm work with her multiplication tables and sang a LOT of Christmas Carols! She started learning to play the keyboard.
Extra : Karate lessons, swim team, spanish lessons at Duolingo, typing lessons using Dance Mat Typing.
