Second Grade Week 16 in Review

We’ve done a fairly decent job of staying on track thus far this year.  It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that we still have plenty of wiggle room in our schedule should we need it.  Here’s how last week went for us:
Bible:  Our Bible story was on “God Can Do Anything”, and our memory work was First Catechism Q&A #13.  We read Joshua 10:6-15 to reinforce the bible story and memory work.
Health:  This week we discussed our ears, and we learned some important rules for ear care.
Science:  This week we discussed how animals are equipped for survival and protection.
English:  We finished up our writing chapter.  Caleb finished up his shape poem.  Here’s his couplet and his shape poem (click on the picture to enlarge them).  I think he did a GREAT job!

Vocabulary:  This week Caleb was introduced to the following words:  aquarium, cage, club, faucet, flood, gift, icicle, imitate, pearl, and valley.  We did several activities to reinforce the definition of each word.
Social Studies:  In Geography, we learned the location of England and Holland (the Netherlands).  In Social Studies, we started a new unit, and we began learning about the people who built America.  Our studies started with The Separatists.
Reading:  This week we read the following stories:
Stellaluna by Janell Cannon
Panda Whispers by Mary Beth Owens
The Principal’s On the Roof by Elizabeth Levy
Math:  This week we started subtracting –1 and –0.  Caleb is doing fairly well with subtraction, and I hope he’s able to retain the facts using Math U See.  Only time will tell…
As always, thanks for following our home school adventure.  We’ll share week 17’s activities towards the end of the week.  Until then…happy schooling to all of you!
