Amir completed the Review lesson for Book 2. He'll take the Posttest on Monday.
This week we learned about predicates in Growing with Grammer 1. I'm really like GWG so far. The lessons are very simple and easy to follow. We do the exercises orally or on the white board.
We're up to 10 words a week now! This week we did "ar" words.
Facts, Facts, Facts, they're ruling our life! Memorizing addition facts is coming along. The main thing I've learned is that we have to do it, e.very.day.
From MUS Beta, we began inequalities. This was review for us since we spent a lot of time doing number sense work a few months ago.

Our last week in Morocco! We painted a scene from a souk or marketplace. It came out so pretty I want to frame it. I'll post it later.
