Basics - Our First Week Back

We had a bit of a late start this year, and a whole lot of changes as well.  We are utilizing a lot more sources on the 'net and really hunkering down with the base subjects.

Our first week we studied hunter-gatherer societies in history.  Nomads, foraging, gender roles, hierarchical and egalitarian societies. 

We are working in earth science right now, focusing on plate tectonics and the earth's structures. 

In math we are reviewing estimation of decimals. 

Emme started reading "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving and is reading other books on her own time.

She is also keeping an online journal this year for writing practice.

In language arts we studied word analysis & recognition. 

In religion she is reading the book of John. 

Working on cursive still, as her handwriting is still sloppy.
