M did more fractions today . We seem to be doing a lot of history these days . We read about the new stone age and did some written work on it . The book we use is Galore park history junior , I find this book easy to teach and doesn't burden with too much information ,provides just enough for their age . Then he did his English Bond Assessment paper which i give him once a week .
J was more willing to do his lessons , he did his usual spelling practise for Wednesday . I am not very keen on starting grammar for J , but wanted to try it so as to see how he feels . We did few sentences to find out verbs in them . He was happy with it as he felt he was doing big boys work.
J and Ds1 did some painting as it gave me some time to read to M from his history text .
As you can see J has priced his paintings and asking me to buy his work . He has used cent instead of dollars because we use Singapore maths and in it things are priced in cents and dollars . It gave me a chance to discuss and compare prices as to which is cheaper and how much was $2 in cent etc . Alhamdulillah these are the opportunity to teach that comes naturally.
Then we watched some documentary about the people of Pompeii from the angle of the historians and Islamic point of view . SubhanaAllah no wonder the people of Pompeii were destroyed as they entrenched in corruption and immorality . In fact they were same as the people of Lut . We watched the Perished Nations by Haroon Yahya and The Last day in BBC .
We finished another life story of a sahabah who was a cousin of our prophet - Abu Sufyan ibn Harith .
