Homeschool Week 32 In Review

We actually finished up week 32 before we left for the beach, but I didn't get around to posting our info. So, here's how that week went:

Beginnings: Our theme for the week was Weathering the Seasons. We talked about weather, weather forecasting, and seasons. Caleb learned the long "a" and long "i" sounds. We added "-ave", "-ate", "-ame", "-ake", and "-ale" to our word families.
"Purple" was added to our list of service words. Our book for the week was Jake the Clown. I thought that the long vowel sounds would prove to be a bit difficult for Caleb, and they were. But -- he is slowly grasping the idea, and I think he'll get it soon.

Math: We talked more about money. Caleb learned how to count sets of nickels and pennies and sets of dimes and pennies. He reviewed the value of all pennies, nickels, and dimes as well. He's really doing well with this, and he seems to be "all about money" now. LOL!

Bible: We added questions 33-35 to our First Catechism study. Our Bible verse for the week was Jeremiah 42:6b.

Thanks for keeping up with our homeschooling adventures. Join us next week as we warm up by talking about SUMMER!
