Ahn-yong-ha-seh-yo! We had a great week learning about South Korea, my preschooler especially liked the song this week, the vibrato was right up her alley!
I apologize for the lack of pictures for this week, but the unthinkable happened on day 3…that’s right…I dropped my camera on the hard wood floor and well…let’s just say it’s apparently not okay to do that.
First I panicked, next I tried desperately to fix it, then I called my mommy crying and she happened to have a spare camera which she so kindly donated to our cause. Thanks MOM!
But despite this sadly lacking in photos post, we did have fun week!
We worked on our Animal Unit lapbook components:
Here is everyone displaying their favorite animal:
We added our animals to the Classification Wall:
We did our lapbook activity:
And we made jeweled crowns:
Here are some more of the things we learned about this week some of which will sadly only exist in our memories now:
- Completed our Mapping Worksheet
- Learned the South Korean song
- Prayed for the country
- Learned how to say hello in Korean
- Learned about the flag and colored our worksheet
- Learned about Children in Korea
- Made a jeweled crown
- Played Rock Paper Scissors “Kawi, bawi, bo”
- Completed our S. Korea Lapbook component

I had to read this as soon as it popped up on my blog list- we are in South Korea right now! 🙂 We are military, though, but I can give you some more info if you want, also. I am teaching my kiddos Korean as well, and the lady that runs the market downstairs is having fun hearing what we learn! 🙂
I am not trying to sound dumb or anything, but I am having a hard time figuring out which animals go in the South Korea packet and which go in the China one. I looked at pics on your blog and it shows the ones for South Korea on your China week. So I am a little confused. By the way I love the geography curriculum. I am pregnant and sick and this is exactly what I needed to get us through! Thanks so much!!
Hi Brandi,The animals should be labeled on the front page of the sheet for each country. So like China is on pages 4-5 of the download and has the Golden Monkey, Stork, Panda Bear, Red Panda, Snow Leopard and Pangolin.
Thanks, Erica! It's pretty obvious looking back. I'll just blame it on pregnancy brain. Thank you for all you do, you make homeschooling easier for me!
