Week Five of Learning 2013-14

Wow – it’s been over a month since I’ve updated my blog.  I don’t think I’ve ever gone that long.  July was a crazy month, and time just got away from me.  We did weeks five and six DURING July, but here are the reviews.
Micah, Kindergarten

  • Bible – Due to our crazy busy schedule, we didn’t focus on Bible this week.  We were busy trying to get other things accomplished.
  • Phonics – This week Micah worked on the letters ‘b’ and ‘p’.  He worked on the phonogram ‘-ip’.  His sight words were go, up, down, and here.
  • Poetry – Our poem this week was ‘The Smile.’  We used it to find our sight words, find commas, find rhyming words, and to find periods.
  • Math – This week Micah worked on the numbers 0-5 and ordinal numbers first-fifth.
Caleb, Fifth Grade
  • Bible – This week Caleb continued to read in Genesis, and he read about a Bride for Isaac, Esau Sells His Birthright, Jacob Deceives Isaac, and Jacob’s Ladder.  Here’s his interpretation of Jacob and Esau.
  • Math – Caleb continues to work in his three books, focusing on addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
  • English – This week Caleb finished up the first chapter by completing a review and test.
  • Test/Study Skills – Caleb worked on maps and learned about symbols, map keys, and map scales.  He also works on editing daily, and here’s a picture of him focusing on that skill.
There you have week five.  I’ll be back shortly with week six (hoping I can remember everything we accomplished).  Smile
