Second Grade Week 37 in Review

We are still managing to stay on track (which I think we’ve done all of 2011), and that’s a BIG accomplishment.  It’s taking effort from Caleb and myself to do so, and I couldn’t be happier.  Here’s how last week went for us…
Bible – Our Bible story was on “Satan Is Our Enemy”, and we read from Matthew 13:24-30 and 36-43.  Our memory work was First Catechism Q&A 33-34.
Health – This week we discussed safety around the water and during bad weather.
Science – We discussed the properties of air this week.
English – We reviewed using commas in a series and completed the chapter with a test and cumulative review.
Vocabulary – Caleb took the test over the words he’s been studying, and he scored 93%.  He then took two cumulative tests and scored 100% and 88%.
Social Studies – This week we discussed the new Americans…immigrants and islanders.
Reading – This week we read the following books:
Horrible Harry Bugs the Three Bears by Suzy Kline
Planet Earth – Who Lives in the Forest? by Lisa L. Ryan-Herndon
Math – This week we worked on column addition.  This particular chapter didn’t prove as easy for Caleb, so we’ll have to spend some additional time working on this concept.  I have no doubt that he’ll understand it with a little more practice.
The boys once again enjoyed another week at Co-Op.  I’m so thankful that we have the opportunity to get together with other home schoolers.  My home schooling friends (and those of the boys) are a HUGE blessing to us.
Look out for our 3rd grade curriculum choices…I’ll be posting about those next week sometime.
