First Grade Week 39 in Review

We are getting closer to the end of first grade.  As of right now, we’re only about a week behind.  So, that’s not too bad.  With the end of the year approaching, we are finishing up lots of our books early.  So, our “school time” will be less and less each week.  I’m sure that Caleb is super excited about this okay…I am, too!  LOL!  With all of this said, here’s how week 39 panned out for us.
Heritage Studies:  We continued to discuss how a family has history.  We also discussed how each person has a history.  Caleb took his last Heritage Studies test, and we are DONE with this for the year!
Math:  We discussed adding 6, 7, and 8.  Caleb also worked on adding 3 addends and double fact families.  We finished up the week by discussing the fact families for 13, 14, 15, and missing addends.
Bible:  Our Bible story this week was on “Telling Others About the Savior.”  Our Bible verse was Matthew 4:19.
Vocabulary:  We added “meadow, atmosphere, crash, search, and clever” to our list of vocabulary terms.
Phonics & English:  We added “-umb and –ew” to our list of word families.  In English skills, we worked on alphabetical order, punctuation, capitalization, and following directions.
Extra Stuff:  Two weekends ago, Caleb was invited to celebrate his friend Ashton’s 7th birthday.  Ashton is the son of one of the homeschool families in our co-op.  We’ve gotten really close to the family, and the boys LOVE to hang out with each other.  His mom, Naomi, and I also enjoy spending time together.  We joined Naomi, Ashton, and Ariana (Ashton’s 5yo sister) for some strawberry picking and a playdate at their home.  Again, they had a blast playing with each other.  I’m also thankful for Naomi and her friendship. 
Here are some pictures from the birthday party and strawberry picking.

As always, thanks for following our adventures in homeschool and daily life.  We always enjoy sharing what we’re doing.  Join us next week as I post about Week 40 and a field trip.
