First Grade Week 29 in Review

We actually finished up week 29 a few days ago.  However, I’m just now getting around to posting the review.  Anyway, without further ado, here’s how the week went.
Heritage Studies:  We discussed the Sun King (King Louis the XIV), and we learned how to make a canoe.
Science:  We discussed how sound is made, and we talked about how sound travels in all directions.
Math:  We discussed how to count dimes and nickels with pennies.  Caleb also learned how to add dimes, nickels, and pennies.  Then, we moved on to learning about quarters and how to make 25 cents using different coins.
Bible:  Our Bible story was on “God Promised to Send the Savior.”  The Bible verse this week was 1 John 4:19.
Vocabulary:  We added “fair, splendid, stake, remain, and rapid” to our list of vocabulary terms.
Phonics & English:  We added “easy, should, together, and woman” to our list of service words.  The “-age, –oil, and –oy” word families were added to our list.  Caleb was also introduced to prepositions.
Extra Stuff:  We have spent a lot of time on playdates recently.  The weather here in Georgia has been so nice, so we’ve enjoyed getting together with friends.  We visited two play places and we enjoyed one of the newer parks in town.  Caleb always loves getting together with his friends, and I enjoy the time with the moms.  Adult conversation is always welcome around here! 
As always, thanks for following our first grade adventures.  We’ll have more next week!
