Week Three of Learning 2014-15

Even though we skipped school one day earlier in the week to enjoy a back-to-school bash with lots of other homeschoolers in the area, we still managed to complete our studies for week three.
Micah, First Grade Bible – Micah’s lesson this week was on “My Prayer of Adoration.”  We read Luke 17:11-19 to accompany the lesson.
LLATL – This week Micah worked on the letters ‘a, n, r, t’ and the sight words ‘a, to.’  He also worked on decoding new words, reading aloud, comprehension, story recall, and sentence formation.

Math – This week Micah worked on the numbers 11-14; place value; counting backward; squares; dimes; and math twin facts (fact families).
Science – This week Micah learned about seeds and seed dispersal; roots; and special roots.
Caleb, Sixth Grade Bible – This week Caleb’s lesson focused on “the fall of man.”  He read Genesis 3 to accompany the lesson.
Math – This week Caleb worked on zeros in the quotient; longer units of time; more division word problems; and averages.
Reading – Caleb continues to read Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  He read chapters 6-9 and completed vocabulary and comprehension activities for each chapter.
Geography – This week Caleb learned about Georgia and Connecticut.
Writing – This week Caleb’s lesson was on better verbs.  He hasn’t completed his writing assignment as we were scheduled for just 4 days of work this week, and writing is always the 5th day.  So, that’ll carry over to next week.
Science – Caleb learned the same information as Micah; however, he also read about George Washington Carver.
Both boys enjoyed the back-to-school bash that we attended on Tuesday.  It was held at a local park, and we were able to meet lots of other homeschoolers in the area.  We’re excited because I have agreed to be the Park Day Coordinator for this school term for the group, so we will be hosting two park days a month.  This will be a great opportunity to connect with other homeschoolers, and we’re looking forward to that.
