Here are pictures of Jedi’s week of homeschooling (after Monday’s focus on Vietnam and Tet of course).

We worked on several different painting projects last week. The first was blending tempura paint while the paint was still on the palette instead of blending it on the paper.

 

He decided to do a painting of Mario and some explosions.

 

The second painting project was blending the paint while on the paper to make a sunset.

 

After painting the sunset, Jedi added an entire alien invasion scene. 🙂

 

In science, Jedi learned about reptiles. Here, he's studying the skeleton of a venomous snake.

 

Studying a snake skin

 

Jedi was trying to compare the skin with the skeleton.

 

Studying basic facts about Vietnam--the language, main religion, population, type of government, etc.

 

In Ancient History, Jedi learned about the Philistines and made a replica of a Hearth Room.

 

Jedi also did his daily journaling for handwriting, as well as continued to work on vowel sounds and blends in spelling.  In math, he began learning about basic subtraction.
