The week prior to Caleb leaving for camp, we decided it was in my best interest if we skipped that week of schooling. I was going to try to make up those 4 days when Caleb returned; however, I made the executive decision to just count his time at camp as school days. Besides, he was getting in LOTS of physical education and a little bit of learning, too (new skills, etc). So, we combined the little bit of work that is most important with this week’s work. Here’s how the week went…
Bible – Our lesson was on “Help With School Work,” and we read Psalm 37:5 and Philippians 4:4-9.
Vocabulary – This week we completed two lessons in vocabulary. The first lesson focused on Homographs, and Caleb’s words were: prune, desert, grouse, bass, and, sewer. The next lesson focused on Eponyms, and Caleb’s words were: braille, sandwich, saxophone, bloomers, tweed, guppy, titanic, Ferris wheel, limerick, and jovial.
Math – This week Caleb worked on finding the perimeter, number patterns, solids, drawing rays, hundred thousands, choosing the nearest ten, doubling a number mentally, add/subtract even hundreds mentally, commas in large numbers, reading numbers with a comma, multiples, counting by 50, writing thousands, and counting by 9 (yes, we did many math lessons in order to stay on track).
Exploration – This week Caleb wanted to learn all about meerkats. So, he read some books from the library on meerkats, and he did a little research on Kidzui, as well. Then, he completed a Meerkat Lapbook.
