Week Eight of Learning 2014-15

We are almost finished with our first quarter…YEAH!  Here’s how our week went…
Micah, First Grade Bible – Micah’s lesson was on ‘my prayer of determination’, and we read Luke 11:5-10 to accompany the lesson.
LLATL – This week Micah worked on the letters ‘d, g, b’, and his sight word was ‘in.’  He also worked on sequencing, real/make-believe, story recall, and reading aloud.  We used The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf to help with some of these skills.  He completed his fourth book for this program.

Math – This week Micah worked on using a ruler to draw a line; subtraction; congruent shapes; etc.
History – This week Micah’s history lesson was on ‘the beginning of history.’  He read about creation, Adam and Eve, the first sin, God’s great curse, and God’s great promise.
Science – Micah learned about meat-eating plants, parasites & passengers, tropisms, survival techniques, and reproduction without seeds.
Caleb, Sixth Grade Bible – Caleb’s lesson this week was on ‘Jacob – A Changed Man,’ and he read Genesis 25, 27:1-30:26, 32:22-31 to accompany the lesson.
Math – This week Caleb worked on equivalent fractions; reducing fractions; and comparing fractions.
Reading – Caleb took his comprehension and vocabulary test over Brian’s Return by Gary Paulsen.  He then began reading The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann Wyss.  He read chapters 1-3 (he has read this book before, so hopefully it’ll be familiar once he gets into it).
Geography – Caleb learned all about Rhode Island.  He then studied for and completed a test over the first 13 states.  He had to recall the states in order of statehood, their capital city, two-letter postal abbreviation, and nickname. 
Writing – Caleb completed his writing assignment for the last lesson.  He had to write ‘machine motion poetry.’  He then began a lesson on proper nouns.
Science – Caleb read the same information as Micah; however, his information was more detailed and in-depth.
