    Class Name: Around the World with Pictures Books: Grade 1 and 2
    This week’s focus: China

    Today we looked at where we live and where China is.

    To be completed this week:
    In your Composition and Sketch book on the first clean BLANK page, print the title CHINA at the top.
    Print the China pages from the resource section ( you may want to reduce the size) and colour the flag of China as we discussed it today. Glue or paper clip it into your book but save some room to add more pictures to this page.
    On the next interlined page, print the date on the first line.
    Then together with your mom, create a sentence about The Empty Pot that you would like to print carefully into your book or your mom can print it and you trace over it. Depending on which type of notebook you have you can create a drawing about the book. (will you draw Ping and an empty pot, and some flowers everywhere else)
    Look at the page 48-49 in the Map book, what is one thing about China that you wonder about? Is there an icon, you want to look up more information about. Have your mom and dad help you.

    Class Name: History for Lower Grammar Students (optional)
    This week’s focus: Seven Year’s War
    For Parent:
    • As desired, parent and student together read or listen to weekly lessons in Mystery of History text. It is rewarding to read lessons together with siblings and mom, or as an entire family. (The text is not written for Lower Grammar students but they can follow along gleaning understanding as they are able. The read aloud will bring the “living” context.)
    • Optional hands on activities for younger age (grades 1 to 4) can be found in the Companion Guide.
    • A class on Thursday over Zoom will focus on a portion of the weekly lesson.
    • Lower Grammar are encouraged to bring weekly coloring sheet posted in the History section of the Resource Library to Zoom class to neatly and carefully color while listening to the weekly history lesson.
    • A change: We will memorize the time line cards. Each week I will add another card to learn while always reviewing each card learnt. KEEP these cards in a place where you can review them regularly. Weekly actions will be added during the Zoom class. (Time Line cards can be found in Resource Libray.)
    In preparation for Schole support class:
    • (Optional) Begin reading MOH text ~ Lessons 1, 2, 3
    • Optional: bring coloring page to class (work on while listening)
