Today we did a series on comprehension to cement in Little Miss 8's knowledge of charts and graphs.
Today was a big day as we worked on fractions - we looked at equivalent fractions and ordering fractions. We also looked at the size and the location of the Rocky Mountains and delved into the world of Norse mythology.
We covered food for energy today and talked about healthy versus non-healthy food. We even experimented in the kitchen and Little Miss 8 made a salad for us to eat. We talked a bit about natural resources and did some reading on cause and effect for our Language Arts subject.
A quiet day but we managed a spelling test (12/15) and drew some boomerangs to go with Little Miss 8's Australian project.
