Second Grade Week 14 in Review

We have completed another week of studies at Childress Academy.  It feels great to be on track and STAY on track.  We’ve done a fairly good job thus far this year, and I hope we continue to stay on top of our schooling.  Here’s how week 14 went for us…
Bible:  Our Bible story this week was on “God Sees Me.”  Our memory work was First Catechism Q&A #12.  We read John 4:1-42 to learn more about how we cannot hide from God.
Health:  This week we started learning about our eyes.  We learned how our eye is very similar to a camera, and we learned the different parts of the eye.
Science:  This week we started learning about beavers.  Caleb learned why we have the saying “busy as a beaver.”
English:  This week we finished up our chapter on verbs by taking a chapter test.  Caleb scored 98%.  We started a new writing chapter, and we’ll be working on writing poems for a bit.
Vocabulary:  We got a list of new words this week:  badge, banner, corner, design, display, fold, parade, rectangle, salute, and tread.  Caleb did a few activities to learn the definition of the words.
Social Studies:  In Geography, we learned the location of Russia.  In Social Studies, we finished up our study of patriotic songs by discussing “God Bless America.” 
Reading:  This week we read the following books/passages:
”Ducks Don’t Get Wet” poem from Evan-Moor
”The Case of the Missing Apples” story from Evan-Moor
Pigs Love Potatoes by Anika & Christopher Denise
Our Library by Eve Bunting
Math:  This week we spent several days reviewing all of our math facts.  Caleb took his Unit 2 Test, and he scored 100%.  I’m hoping he really has all of the addition problems memorized because we start subtraction this week.  Wish us luck…
In other news, I’m already thinking about 3rd grade curriculum choices.  I know, I know…it’s WAY too early.  LOL!  I’m just browsing…that’s all.  As of right now, I think we’ll be making a few changes, but I’m not certain yet.  So, just keep checking back.

Sounds like a lot of learning is going on at your house! Hannah lost her first tooth last night so we have been reading lots of books on teeth! :)

What ever happened to your menu planning? I haven't chuckled about left-overs in a looong time, Sherrie. ;) Maybe you could do a cooking lesson--that might be fun.

Hey you! Yes, you...the one staring at the computer screen. I know you have something to say, so go ahead...just write what's on your mind. :) We all know that writing is good for the soul, and what better way than to leave a comment?!!? I promise to do my best to return the favor. :)
