First Grade Week 40 in Review

I cannot believe that first grade is almost over.  Now, I’m glad it’s almost over, but it’s still hard to believe that our son will soon be entering 2nd grade.  We’ve got 5 weeks left (or 20 days) of first grade, and then we’ll take at least 2 weeks off (maybe more depending on how quickly we finish up the next 20 days) before starting 2nd grade.  Here’s how week 40 went for us:
Math:  We discussed the fact families for 15, 16, 17, and 18.  Caleb also worked on multi-step word problems. 
Bible:  Our Bible story this week was on “Jesus, God’s Son, Gave His Life.”  Our memory work was First Catechism question 56. 
Vocabulary:  We added “month, mural, imitate, applause, and photograph” to our list of vocabulary terms.
Phonics & English:  We reviewed punctuation, capitalization, silent consonants, contractions, and possessives.  We added “enough” to our list of service words.
As you can see, we’re slowly finishing up with some of our subjects.  We’re completely done with science, heritage studies, and reading.  However, Caleb is still required to read at least one book each day until the end of school.  We’ll finish Bible and Vocabulary in Week 41.  Handwriting is almost complete, too. 
Thanks for continuing to follow our homeschool adventure.  We’ve got several exciting field trips planned as we wind down the year, so be sure to keep checking in to see what we’re doing!  I’ll post soon about our plans for 2nd grade.  I’m excited about 2nd grade, and I hope Caleb will be as well!
