Third Grade Week 13 in Review

Another week of schooling has come to an end at Childress Academy (oh, how I’d love to have a name other than our last as our school name…maybe one day I’ll get creative).  LOL!  Here’s how our week went:
Bible – Our stories this week were on “What the Law Means” and “God’s Law is Good.”  We read from I Kings 17:8-16 and 2 Kings 23:1-3.  Caleb’s Bible verse for the week was Deuteronomy 6:5.
Science – This week we finished up our living/non-living lapbook.  However, I haven’t taken the time to put it all together, so the completed project pictures will have to wait.
Social Studies – We spent the week reading more books that discussed The Pilgrims.  We read Sarah Morton’s Day – A Day in the Life of a Pilgrim Girl by Kate Waters, Young Squanto – The First Thanksgiving by Andrew Woods, The Thanksgiving Story by Alice Dalgliesh, and Three Young Pilgrims by Cheryl Harness.
Reading – We continued to work on some sequencing activities that I downloaded and printed from The Teacher’s File Box.  We also worked on using how, when, and where words.
Vocabulary – Caleb took his test, and he scored 94%.
Math – Caleb took his first quiz with CLE.  He didn’t score as well as I would have hoped, but that just means there’s more reviewing in his future.  NEW CONCEPTS:  Odd Numbers and Pairs; Dimes, Nickels, and Pennies; Polygons; and Understanding Tens and Ones.  REVIEW CONCEPTS:  Differences of 2; Quarters; Fact Focus:  7, 4, 3; Vertical and Horizontal; Fact Focus:  Doubles 4, 5, 6; and Carrying to the Tens Place.  So far, Caleb still seems to be enjoying math as much as I think he’s going to enjoy ANY math.  LOL!  Again, only time will tell if we’ve chosen the right fit.
English – This week Caleb worked on compound words and pronouns.  He is still doing really well with the ACE Paces that we’re using.  So, that’s a plus on the curriculum choice scoreboard!  Smile
How’s your school year going?  Have you had to ditch and start over with curriculum at all?  Or – is that just me?  LOL!
