Week 24 of Learning 2013-14

The boys really stepped up to the plate last week, and they did four days of school on Friday.  We’re really trying to get caught up so that we can resume our normal, more relaxed schooling schedule.  I’m hoping it’ll only be about two more weeks of doubling up.  Here’s how week 24 went…
Micah, Kindergarten Bible – Micah continues to work in his AWANAS Sparks book.  He’s almost done with the whole book.
Phonics – This week Micah worked on the long ‘o’ and long ‘e’ sounds.  His phonograms were “-oat, –oad, –ow, –e, and –o.”  His sight words were ‘one, my, me, big, come.’

Poetry – This week Micah’s poem was ‘Wake Up, Groundhog.’  We used the poem to discuss commas, periods, and long ‘e’ words.
Math – This week Micah worked on place value and patterns of 10.  He had already been practicing how to count by 10s, so this was a fun week for him.
Caleb, Fifth Grade Bible – Caleb continues to work in his AWANAS T&T Ultimate Challenge book.
Math – This week Caleb worked on right angles; other kinds of angles; triangles and quadrilaterals; types of triangles; and perpendicular and parallel line segments.
Brian was out of town all week with his new job, so this gave us the opportunity to really focus on school and get a lot of it behind us.  We spent Saturday having fun at the Brevard Zoo.  The boys did the Chutes and Ladders treetop trek challenge, paddled a kayak with Brian, and we all walked around the zoo.  It was a fun filled family day.

Don't tell the kids, but I'd like to kick that damn groundhog right about now.
