Second Semester, Second Grade

I'm always amazed at how quickly the months pass, but here we are already a month into our second semester of second grade. And we have packed it full of fun things. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Learned to write checks in Math class
  • Worked on probabilities
  • Studied about stars, galaxies, telescopes, and the solar system in Science
  • Made a scale model of the solar system
  • Worked on writing longer, more thorough papers for Writing class--which include an intro, a conclusion and at least three body paragraphs
  • Studied about El Cid in Spain, King Richard in England, the scattering of the Jews known as the Diaspora, Genghis and Kublai Khan in China, Marco Polo's expeditions along the "Silk Road" and a few other interesting things in History
  • Made a Jewish meal and a Chinese meal
  • Created a Silk Road inside our house
  • Started formal piano lessons with a fabulous teacher
  • Participated in Super Friday classes, which include Knitting, Art and "Little House on the Prairie"
