Week 11 In Review

This week was a celebration
of fall and God's Providence at harvest time! Our church puts on a Harvest Party and Miss M went as Hannah Montana. She is such a girlie girl, and loved the make-up, wig, sparkly shirt and high heels. I can't believe I let her wear high heels -- but hey--she really DID look like Hannah Montana! Now several members at church greet her simply with a "Hi, Hannah!" : )

Created with digital mini-kit "Happy" by SweetMade.Net -- a FREEBIE -- and Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Designer software and fonts.

Continuing our
Sonlight 5 study, we began our study of China. We went to the library and brought home a boat load of books on China - our Book Basket overflow-eth. This week we concentrated on the Great Wall. Miss M read Book Basket books and Netflix videos, and also read the first chapter of Enchantment of the World: China. Beginning this week, our read-aloud is Young Fu of the Upper Yangtze. The first chapters were a hit -- I think it is going to be a very engaging book for our whole family.

Here are some fun Book Basket and Netfliix titles Miss M chose this week:

In her free time, Miss M cut out and painted models of Ancient Chinese coins...

made some Chinese calligraphy character flashcards...

and colored several Chinese Fashion coloring book pages.

Geography, Miss M learned the Important Cities of China , and we watched an excellent video showing the land of China, "Globe Trekker: China" from Netflix.

This week Miss M did a very quick page on the Great Wall. Her handwriting is very sloppy and she will need some extra practice on her handwriting next week.
It was a rich week. Next week, we continue our China study and will attempt some Chinese recipes. Thanks for visiting, and have a great week of learning!

I am really enjoying your tour through Sonlight 5. I am strongly leaning towards doing this core next year and your posts make me very excited about it.

Tell Ms M she does look like HM! Great Costume. *Ü* Our church doesn’t do anything really, so we went to another churches Harvest Carnival. RyLee was a genie.

Another wonderful week!
