Week 18 of Learning 2013-14

We finished up week 18 this morning, and here’s what we’ve been up to…
Micah, Kindergarten Bible – Micah continues to work in his AWANAS Sparks book.
Phonics – This week Micah worked on the initial ‘sh’ blend.  He also worked on the final ‘sh’ blend and the 
ash and –ish phonograms.  He learned the initial ‘ch’ blend as well.  His sight words were look, at, the, my, see (we’re to a reviewing point with sight words, so we’ll spend lots of time playing review games to cement what he’s learned thus far).

Math – This week Micah reviewed circles and patterns.  For now, I’m impressed and pleased with the Math Lessons for a Living Education curriculum.  We’ll see how it continues to go. 
Caleb, Fifth Grade Bible – Caleb continues to work in his AWANAS T&T Ultimate Challenge book…which is quite difficult, I might add.  Sad smile  He’s getting a bit frustrated with it.
Math – This week Caleb worked on multiplying by 10 and 5; tally marks; odd and even numbers; multiplying by 2 and 4; and multiplying by 6 and 8.
English – Well, I decided to ditch our lessons on pronouns this week and focus on what was keeping Caleb busy in his spare time…researching pet lizards for whatever reason (he’s not getting one anytime soon, so I really don’t get the current obsession).  So, I convinced him to work on a paper on reptiles.  We did the outline and rough draft this week, and he’ll type up the final copy next week.
We have enjoyed some time with friends this week, too, and we’re looking forward to more next week.  Smile
