Week Six of Learning 2014-15

Here’s how week six went…
Micah, First Grade Bible – This week Micah’s Bible lesson was on “My Prayer of Intercession,” and we read Nehemiah 1:3-11; 2:1-6 to accompany the lesson.
LLATL – This week Micah continued part of last week’s lesson.  We used Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown to accompany our lesson.  He then moved on to learning m, h, o and the sight words has, with.  Other skills he worked on were story recall, sequencing, retelling stories, etc.
Math – This week Micah worked on expanded numbers, triangles, counting dimes and pennies, and learning to subtract one.

These are some creations that Micah made with pattern blocks while I was working with Caleb.  He made a lion, sailboat, and a butterfly using his own imagination.
History – This week we started a new History book.  I ordered History for Little Pilgrims, and we completed the first unit on God’s Great Story this week. 
Science – This week Micah learned about tree identification, flowers, and pollination.
Caleb, Sixth Grade
Bible –
This week Caleb’s lesson was on The Call of Abraham, and he read Genesis 12, 15, and 17 to accompany the lesson.
Math – This week Caleb worked on other metric units; adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominators; and improper fractions and mixed numbers.
Reading – This week Caleb continued reading  Brian’s Return by Gary Paulsen.  He read Chapters 5-11 and completed vocabulary and comprehension lessons for each chapter.
Geography – This week Caleb learned facts on New Hampshire and Virginia.
Writing – Caleb completed his contractions lesson and completed the writing assignment which was an Animal Movement poem.
Science – Caleb covered the same topics as Micah; however, he also read about Pierre-Joseph Redoute.
I’m glad that we’ve been able to stay on track so far.  Granted, we’re only six weeks in, but still…it’s an accomplishment when some days life just gets in the way.  I’m also very proud of both boys and their overall success and attitude towards school this year.  This is starting out as one of our smoother years, and I’m hoping maybe we’re in our groove…it only took six years, huh?!!?  LOL!
