Learning about Moses, Numbers 21-22 and Play doh fun! (week of 3-24-14)

Hello and hope you all had a marvelous week!  Just read a devotional in my email from Devotionals Daily and they talked about 1 Corinthians 2:12a "God has given us His spirit.  That's why we don't think the same way that the people of this world think." If that doesn't describe a homeschool Mom!  Whatever struggles or joys you are going through this week, know that we have a loving Father who is watching over us all.

Bible and Reading:
Monday
This week in our homeschool, we are continuing the story of Moses.  We read "Moses the Great Leader" (Exodus 14-16), where God parted the sea to save Moses and the Israelites and provided manna from heaven.  We continued into "The Ten Commandments" (Exodus 19-31) and talked about the rules God sent down from heaven.
I grabbed a bowl of water and a spoon to show how Moses used his staff and God commanded that the sea part to save Moses and the Israelites.  I showed the boys how hard this would be to do to separate water like that and explained that God is capable of anything.
We also read "Joseph's Coat of Many Colors" by: Kathryn Smith and B did Lesson 36 in "100 Easy Lessons. (new words: shot, shack)
 
Tuesday - Read "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" by: Beatrix Potter
Wednesday - Awanas homework went over Lamentations 3:23 and how God keeps his promises.  B read the story of Noah with pictures from his Awana's booklet.
Thursday - "Llama Llama Holiday Drama" by: Anna Dewdney.  We also read "A Golden Calf" (Exodus 32-33), where the Israelites grew anxious waiting for Moses to come back so they gathered all their gold together and melted it to make a golden calf.  The golden calf became their god and this angered God and Moses asked him to forgive the people and told them there is only one God.  God punished the people but the reference explains that even though God was angry, he has an unconditional love for all of his people and wants us to repent our sins. 
~Side note: This story is really interesting.  How many people even today treat the "golden calf" (aka money) as their god?  It is amazing the unconditional love that God offers each and everyone of us.~
Friday - B did Lesson 37 in "100 Easy Lessons" (new words and sound: long a, said).  He is up to recognizing 78 words that he can read and I am just so proud and amazed by him!  My youngest G is also doing amazing and I am so proud of him as well!  He knows how to sing the "Alphabet song!"
 
Math:
Monday - Number 21 Number find and we counted from 1-21.
Thursday - Number 22 Number find and we counted from 1-22.  We also played the game, "Who Shook Hook" and went over numbers 1-5 for both boys.
 
Art/Music/PE:
Monday - G colored the above worksheet.  I am starting to teach them the song "Jesus Loves Me" with these cute coloring pages.  B colored 21 dragonflies for his math lesson.
Wednesday - We took a walk outside today and played out front for about an hour and a half!  We did some sidewalk chalk, talked with neighbors passing by, and I attempted to teach the boys jump rope.  I think we need a few more lessons!
Thursday - G colored a picture of Moses carrying The Ten Commandments and B had to draw 22 stars for his math lesson.
 
Motor and Social Skills:
Monday - Reading comprehension questions in reading lesson, and cut and paste activities for math lesson.
 
Tuesday - We had some Play doh fun and after reading "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" we made him out of  Playdoh!  The boys worked on reading comprehension as I asked them to point out things in the story and explain to me what was happening in the story.
We also made Peter Pan!

My B so proud of his Peter Rabbit!

My G having a blast with Play doh!
 
Wednesday - The boys fell asleep right before Awanas started but at least they have their homework ready for next week!  We did some floor puzzles today.
 Thursday - We played "Who Shook Hook" game and they had to use different pieces of equipment to pick up the game pieces so it is a fun way for them to use fine motor skills.

Monday - 21, twenty one
Thursday - 22, twenty two
Friday - F, f, g, G
