Homeschool Week 33 in Review

Another week done...check! Here's how this week went:

Beginnings: Our theme for the week was It's Summer. We talked a lot about summer and summer weather. Caleb learned the long "i", "o", and "u" sounds. We added "-ide", "-ike", "-ine", "-ire", "-one", "-ose", and "-une" to our word families. We also added "you" to our list of service words. Our story for the week was Like the Snow, Caleb did an awesome job reading it.

Math: We finished up our chapter on money. Caleb identified the quarter and learned it's value. We also reviewed the penny, nickel and dime.

Bible: We added questions 36 and 37 to our First Catechism study. Our Bible verse for the week was John 3:16a.

Art: We worked with paint this week, and Caleb created a summer tree print. He also created a summer weather page. I hope to get pictures of these and some other homeschool things up soon. So, stay tuned.

Extra Stuff: We spent some time with our friends at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in Macon. Caleb had fun looking at all of the art, digging for dinosaur bones and just being a kid. We also registered for the spring session of co-op. Caleb will be taking three classes: Insects: Going Buggy, Literature Pockets, and Spanish Fabuluso. He'll also eat lunch and have recess. So, he'll get a little time with other homeschoolers starting next week.

Join us next time as we learn about the fall.

Sounds like you had a very productive week! I just started homeschooling my daughter in pre-school. She challenges my patience every day.
