Week of December 16: Learning # 3

Well this week, Daddy and G got sick but again, we were able to do a lot this week despite the sicknesses in the house. 

 
Playdoh has become a mainstay in our homeschool day!

 
This week, we decided to dedicate some of our week to teach the boys about giving.  This is the boys getting all of our ingredients together for Christmas gifts for Awanas teachers.
 
Bible:
 
Awana's verse this week - "Today in the town of David, A Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord." Luke 2:11.  We also read Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:26-38, 2:1-20.
 
Chapter 28 "The Holy Spirit" Acts 2 - The Holy Spirit came in a whirlwind and a flame of fire came over the disciples and they learned different languages they had never known so they could go and tell others about Jesus.  We explained that the Holy Spirit is the love and belief we have in Jesus.  3,000 people were baptized that day!

 
Daddy joined in to help teach the boys about equal measurements so good math lesson while giving! 

 
I found this idea on Pinterest  so I decided to call it Snowman Cocoa to go along with our snowman lesson on number 3 this week.  You put a layer on cocoa, then there is white mini marshmallows, red and green M&Ms, pink peppermint mini marshmallows and then some Hershey kisses to top it all off in a mason jar! 

 
We put a bow on top and it came out really nice!  B talked about this at Awanas with his teachers about him and his Momma making powder and marshmallows for presents for them and then I came to pick him up and it all made sense at that point for his teachers! They loved the Snowman cocoa!

 
Playdoh fun this week

 
Building Frosty

 
G getting his snowman prepped.  We did 3 circles out of construction paper and then covered it with cotton.

 
G's Frosty the Snowman

 
Daddy home from work sick so he got to help with homeschool this week!  He always gets to be home for the cool projects :)  We built a snowman with 3 circles for its head, body and bottom and the snowman had 3 fingers on each hand to go over our lesson for 3 this week.  ABCmouse even covered #3 this week, which was awesome!

 
B's Frosty the Snowman.  We even watched Frosty the Snowman the movie after we were done!

 
B's writing for # 3. 

 
This is my Uncle's daughter.  Isn't she beautiful :)

 
We sent her a birthday gift and this is her opening the box!  She lives in another state as does my brother's daughter but its cool to be able to see the pictures of them growing since I can't be there.  But we will be visiting next year and the boys will get to go Trick or Treating with them so I am looking forward to that!

 
This picture was Grandma's birthday 2 weeks ago!

Science:
We read "Curious Critters" this week and learned about different types of critters like fireflies, Gila monster, frogs, toads, Ohio crawfish, Blue Jay, Monarch, Fox Snake, Eastern Screech-Owl, beetles, praying mantis, turtles).  We also were read an ebook on Elephants on ABCmouse.
 
Motor and Social Skills:
Awanas, playdate with friend, and gluing all the correct items in the right spot for the Frosty art project.  There was also color matching on ABCmouse and matching letter F to the correct picture.
 
We may take the next 2 weeks off the blog to enjoy the holiday but we will see!  Excited to have Christmas here :)
