Week Four of Learning 2014-15

We are moving right along in our 2014-15 school year.  It’s been fairly easy to stay on track, and I’m crossing my fingers we can continue this throughout the school year.  Here’s what was learned this week…
Micah, First Grade Bible – Micah’s lesson this week was on ‘my prayer of dedication’, and we read Luke 22:39-42 to accompany the lesson.
LLATL – This week Micah worked on the letters ‘s, c, f’ and the sight words ‘and, the.’  He also worked on sequencing and story recall.  He also read his first book for this program.

Math – This week Micah worked on the numbers 15-18; reading numbers on a number line; identifying points; and less than/greater than.
Science – This week Micah learned about stems, stem structure, and stem growth.
Caleb, Sixth Grade Bible – This week Caleb’s lesson was on ‘the flood and the tower,’ and he read Genesis 4:1-16; 6:1-11:9 to accompany his lesson.
Math – This week Caleb worked on percent; thinking of fractions as percents; and more on percents and fractions.
Reading – Caleb finished reading Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder by reading Chapter 11-13.  He completed several vocabulary and comprehension activities based on the chapters as well.  He’ll take a final comprehension test on the book and move on to his second book next week.
Geography – This week Caleb learned about Massachusetts and Maryland.  We are both finding some of the ‘interesting’ facts on each state quite interesting to say the least.  Some of the ‘unstated’ laws are just crazy.  LOL!
Writing – Caleb completed his writing assignment on verbs, and then he moved on to incomplete proverbs (incomplete sentences).
Science – Caleb read the same information as Micah; however, he went into further detail with each topic.
I’m very pleased with how both boys are performing this year.  We’ve gotten into somewhat of a routine, and it all seems to be going really well.  I don’t get much fuss from either one, and that always makes for a happy momma.
