School Days 2012 ~ Week 23

Here's what we've been up to:

~Learning about Raphael:  The masterful painter of Madonna and Child, who some say was a bit of a copy-cat of Leo & Mike, was born April 6, 1483 and died on April 6, 1520.  Art I-Spy:  Check out the Sistine Madonna.  Do you notice anything unusual about the clouds overhead?



~Studying the life and music of Chopin:  His musical genius showed up early.  As a young child (about 4), he would sit under the piano while his sister played and sometimes was moved to tears by the beauty of the music.



~Reading:

    ~Something New:  



    For the Spring Term, our 10th grader is working through Real Food Nutrition & Health by Kristen Michaelis.  She follows up her reading using this discussion & activity guide.



    Weekly Worship Theme:  Continuing to learn about the names of God, this week we focused on
    Jehovah-Raah, The Lord My Shepherd.  We memorized Psalm 23 and used this simple guide for our daily discussions.  We sang "Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us".



    Just For Fun:

    I purchased this last summer for our cross-country car trip.  It now resides in the Busy Box where our 5th grader finally found it and took an interest.
