This was a fun week, because we studied some exciting topics – a natural disaster and a man-made disaster. Let’s face it -disasters are interesting.
Topics Studied: Roosevelt’s Second Term, Taft, The Titanic, Panama Canal, San Francisco Earthquake, Russo-Japanese War
Artists/Composers: Matisse & Gustav Mahler
Memo: “Whole Duty of Children”, The Pledge of Allegiance, and the Presidents up to Taft (well, they’re working on it….)
Math: The kids are zooming through their math lessons with Teaching Textbooks. I really think that Nick will finish early and start level 4 before the end of the year.
