We have enjoyed warmer weather this week. It does wonder's for EVERYONE's attitude to have the sun out.
Well, I will aim at low hanging fruit here - everyone remembers Schoolhouse Rock's Conjunction Junction song. It's a fun one. Once you start looking at Youtube you can find lots of their other videos which might be a fun way to review some of the other things we have done (like multiplication).
So how cold is absolute zero? Try - 459.67 F degrees. They are getting very close to it. It's absolute zero when particles stop moving and there is no heat energy remaining in them.
Creating acronyms is a way to help learn these countries. This past week I was talking about parentheses in math with my oldest and remembered "Pretty Please My Dear Aunt Sally" as a way to remember order of operations. It's been a long time but it's still in there. We are also learning the names of spaces and lines on the staff - so FACE and Every Good Boy Does Fine (or Deserves Fudge). So you can make your own or search for a premade one. There are 7 countries in Central America (we cover the other two next week).
Guatemala - Great
Belize - Big
El Salvador - Elephants
Honduras - Huddle
Nicaragua - Near
Costa Rica - Cool
Panama - Pools
or whatever your kids can think.
The history sentence this week cracks me up as it mimics some of the 80's style. Have a great one.
