Homeschool Update

Here's what we've been up to lately (between field trips...):

Math: Books, workbooks and online resources (not pictured). Mostly addition and subtraction with regrouping and lots of word problems, understanding place value, the concepts of multiplication and division, fibonacci numbers and patterns, some intro to fractions and decimals:

Science: Nutrition, digestion, circulation, marine biology, ornithology, ecosystems and biomes, nature, weather, geology and recycling.

History, mythology, folktales: Mostly India, a little bit China. We've also done some Native American studies, especially concerning the truth about Columbus Day and Thanksgiving (no photos, mostly online and discussion.):

Language arts: Mostly working on the elements of a good story, i.e., plot and characterization, conflict, pacing, etc. and outlining Mikro's story.
