Nothing to report for this week, really. It was a busy GS week, but that was it.
Math – We continued with RS C, completing lessons 5-9. The lessons continued with math facts review as well as working with Venn diagrams. Practice sheets were also introduced, and Bean seems to be fine with doing them (which is a good thing).

Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library
ETC – Bean completed Lesson 5. It covered silent-e syllables.
FLL – We only did two lessons this week – 15 and 16. Both focused on helping verbs.
WWE – We completed Week 5, with excerpts from Misty of Chincoteague. Bean’s dislike of dictation continued.
History – We completed Chapter 8: Great Dynasties of China, and the first part of Chapter 9: East of China (which covers Japan and Korea). This was a rare week in that we actually did some of the crafts. For Chapter 8, we made jade beads, and for Chapter 9, we did some origami.
Science – We completed Lesson 7: Seashores, Seas/Oceans, & Under the Sea.
