Homeschool Week 15 In Review

Well, we've finally finished up week 15 of our homeschooling. We will catch-up...it's just taking some time. I'm not gonna fret because we do use a 4-day school week, so we've got plenty of time to get it all done. Here's how week 15 went:

Beginnings: We continued our break from our reading book in order to study apples. Granted, this was planned for September around Johnny Appleseed's birthday, but we're a little late. But -- it was still fun. We read The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall, How Do Apples Grow? by Betsy Maestro, Apples, Apples, Apples by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace, Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington, and Ten Apples Up on Top by Theo LeSieg. Using these books we talked about the life cycle of apple trees, parts of a tree, parts of an apple, and positional words. We made several mini-books, and we made apple prints. Caleb continued to practice his handwriting and reading.

Math: We talked about tens and ones by learning #s 30-39. We also reviewed ordinal positions.

Bible: We continued to review questions 14-15 from The First Catechism. Our Bible verse for the week was Psalm 119:105.

Music: We talked about pitch by studying high and low sounds. Caleb had to listen to the keyboard and determine if a note was high or low. He did really well.

Extra Stuff: Caleb participated in skating with CGCHE. We also met and played with some of our neighbors who homeschool. We also went up to visit the Rock Ranch, and it was a great place to do lots of learning. Caleb had a blast.

As always, thanks for following our homeschooling journey. Here are some pictures of some of our apple activities.
