First Grade Week 33 in Review

Well, we are moving right along here at Childress Academy.  And – we are staying on track.  That’s wonderful news if you ask me!  Here’s how this week panned out:
Heritage Studies:  We continued to discuss a Separatist Sunday, and then Caleb had a test over the latest chapter.
Bible:  We continued working on our rainforest lapbook.  We read several books about the rainforest, and Caleb learned a little about snakes and animal defenses.
Math:  Caleb started learning about hundreds, tens, and ones.  We worked on missing #s and writing #s to 1000.
Bible:  Our Bible story this week was on “God Gives Us Power to Repent.”  Instead of a Bible verse, we worked on memorizing First Catechism questions 59 and 62.
Vocabulary:  We added “eager, adjust, steady, exercise, and complete” to our list of vocabulary terms.
Phonics & English:  We added “word and tears” to our list of service words.  We also added “-oy, –oth, –off, –are, and
–air” to our list of word families. 
Extra Stuff:  Last Friday we enjoyed a Valentine’s party at the Skating rink with all of the other homeschoolers.  Let me tell you…there are a TON of homeschoolers in our area.  Caleb had fun, and he got lots of Valentine’s goodies.  We also enjoyed park day yesterday.  Granted, it was cold, but it was nice to get out and let the boys have some fun.  We’re still enjoying homeschool library time as well.  This week they talked about Valentine’s and made a little Valentine for one of their friends.  Caleb gave his to his friend, Ashton.  Those two boys have lots of fun together.
We’re taking next week off as our Winter Break.  It’s pretty fitting being as we are expecting 2-4 inches of snow here today.  We’ll see if it actually shows up, but most of the local schools have closed today.  Caleb woke us up to tell us it didn’t snow.  But – the day is not over.  So, check back to see if the weather man was actually right.  If he was, then you know there will be lots of pictures.
