Weeks 17 and 18 of Learning 2014-15

Well, it’s been a bit since I’ve updated our schooling.  We finished up our necessary schooling on Saturday…just in time to have a week off for Christmas.  Here’s how the past two weeks went...
Micah, First Grade
Bible — Micah’s lessons were on Catechism questions 1-10, and we read Isaiah 40:28 and 2 Samuel 7:22 to accompany his lessons.

LLATL —Micah worked on the sight words “good, they, like, night, jump, up, down.”  He also worked on the numbers 0-9, compound words, plurals, and sequencing.  He read another book for his program as well.  We also read The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.

History — This week Micah learned about “Christ Builds His Church."
Science — This week Micah learned about arachnids, crustaceans, myriapods, mollusks, cnidarians, echinoderms, sponges, and worms.
Caleb, Sixth Grade
Bible —
Caleb’s lessons was on Israel’s Idolatry, and we read Exodus 32-34 to accompany his lesson.
Math — Caleb worked on long division; long division with remainders; zeros in the quotient; dividing by two digits; multiplying with three or more digits; hours, minutes, and seconds; longer periods of time; and do I multiply or divide.
Reading — Caleb finished reading Little Pear by Eleanor Francis Lattimore.  He also completed a comprehension and vocabulary quiz over the story.
Geography — This week Caleb learned facts about our great state of Florida.  We are taking the time to spend more time on Florida and learn as much as we can.  This week his lesson focused on some of Florida’s geographical features.

Writing — Caleb had to complete his writing assignment which was a final poem on the parts of speech he’s learned thus far.  We then spent some time playing review games.

Science — Caleb read the same information as Micah.
I’m glad to have a week off from lessons, and I’m sure the boys share my feelings.
