Week Three of Learning 2013-14

We finished up week three of school last week; however, I didn’t have time to get this post up.  So, here’s how week three went for us…
Micah, Kindergarten

  • Bible – Our Bible story this week was on Adam & Eve and the fall of man.  We read Genesis 3, and our Bible verse is Romans 3:23.  Micah started working on coloring a spiral snake.  Since he’s pretty OCD about his coloring, it’s taking him a good bit of time to color it just right.  Smile
  • Phonics – This week Micah worked on the letters ‘h’ and ‘w.’  His sight words were “like, is, my, and it.”  He read another book by BJU Beginnings titled Blue or Green.
  • Poetry – The poem for this week was ‘All of Me.’  We used the poem to find our sight words, identify rhyming words, and identify commas.
  • Math – This week we worked on same & different and one-to-one correspondence. 
Caleb, Fifth Grade
  • Bible – Caleb continued reading in Genesis, and he read about Abraham Entertains Angels and The Destruction of Sodom. 
  • Math – Caleb continued to work in his three books.  Since this is pretty much the same each week, I may leave this off of future weekly reviews.  Smile
  • English – This week Caleb worked on types of sentences, how to diagram commands and questions, and simple/compound sentences.
  • Test/Study Skills – This week Caleb worked on maps, charts, graphs, and diagrams.  He learned about the compass rose, cardinal points, intermediate points, and he used those skills to complete several activities.
  • Miscellaneous – Caleb spends time reading, working with Hot Dots, or playing educational iPad games daily while I work with Micah.  So, I try to take pictures of him ‘working’ on occasion.
We’re continuing to enjoy our 2013-14 school year.  We’re schooling this week, and then we’ll be enjoying a week off to celebrate anniversaries (our 13th and my parent’s 50th) and birthdays (Caleb’s 10th).  Smile
