We learned that Chinese use characters to represent ideas and objects. We said numbers 1-10 in Mandarin Chinese and wrote math problems with Chinese numbers. We made colorful Chinese Lanterns.
We had a festive Chinese meal of pot-stickers and fried rice served with tea. We ate with chopsticks on bamboo plates. Jordan decorated and set the table and Nathan prepared the meal.
After lunch, the boys worked on memorizing the countries of Asia.
Friday is usually a catch up day, but we needed to catch up on our geography so we had a regular lesson. Nathan and Dylan had free time the rest of the day and Jordan had free time after he finished his math review from yesterday. Right now, the boys are looking forward to their rest day and are enjoying an old film - the Marx Brothers. . .I hear lots of giggles coming from the living room!
