New Review and Asia Studies
Sarah at The Forest Room has posted a review of my book, The King Will Make a Way. Please take a look at what she had to say.
I am traveling on Wednesday, flying solo with the 5 kids to Asia. All you praying women can be praying for our trip. I took a picture of our wall map we’ve slowly been working on. I tore it down today before we ever got to finish it.
I’ve posted the links to the lapbook pieces as I’ve posted our studies. My daughter also has been drawing on (though hard to see) some land features as we go: the Nile, Himalayas, Mt. Fuji…
For our Asia studies we did one week on Japan and studied volcanoes as well. Above is a picture of our Mt. Fuji. We did one week on China and studied the Himalayas. China has fun things as well. We made paper lanterns and did calligraphy. We did one week on India and studied caves as a landform.The country links are all on this page under Asia and then their respective country. The landform links are on the earth science page. As usual, the books we read are what we had on hand–different kid atlas books, an Usborne book on people and cultures, and various readers we have on the different landforms. As for novels my daughter did read The Lost Heir by Henty which is related to India. My son read, In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson, which is related to China, though has great American culture in it as well. The Last Puppeteer is a book on Japan if you want a novel for that country to check out of the library.
Then I gave the kids a week to do whatever country they wanted to and write a paragraph or essay on it. The 3rd grader wrote a paragraph. The 5th grader wrote a five paragraph essay. Wednesday they had to give me the rough draft. Thursday I went over the rough draft with them. Friday they made a final copy. This month we were doing paragraph writing from my free Language Arts Curriculum. I usually tie all those studies in so it feels like as much as possible that we only have one subject we’re studying.
We’ll be studying the Middle East separately. We’ll be off school for a couple of weeks at least while we move and set up in a new home and city.
Here’ s the link to the review again. I’d love to know if you’ve read the book and if you’ve used the materials. And tell tell others about it! It’s a way to support missions 🙂
