week 33

sand castle with tiny flowers and rocksWe’ve had a great week of school, to include two metro park visits.  The boys have been working on a piano piece that includes a melody line and an accompaniment part.  After working on both parts for a couple weeks, they were able to play the song together, one playing the melody and the other accompanying, quite the challenge.  This completed Unit 5 from Hoffman Academy.  The week also included finding greatest common factors and reducing fractions for Courben and multiplying three digit by three digit for Judah.  We’re also enjoying our new read-aloud, Book Scavenger, and learning all about ciphers.  Coincidentally, Judah chose ciphers and codes for his  History topic after taking an online spy class.

Three weeks to go!
