- Aesop's Fables by: Jerry Pinkney - This is an excellent book because it gives you the life lesson at the bottom of every story!

- The Legend of the Candy Cane by: Lori Walburg
We had a busy week last week so we had the boys catch up on ABCmouse lessons and we had some fun learning and reading activities. I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving this week and enjoy the love of family and friends wherever your travels lead you :)

Missed Thursday this week because the boys weren't feeling well.
Bible and Reading:
Monday - We read "The Donkey's Shadow" in "Aesop's Fables." B did Reading Letters U and V lessons on ABCmouse and G had lessons on fruit.
Hard at work!
Tuesday - The boys and I read many stories from "Aesop's Fables," including "The Grasshopper and the Ants," The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse," and "The Tortoise and the Hare." We also read the books, "Where the Wild Things Are," by: Maurice Sendak and "The Legend of the Candy Cane." B learned about reading letters W and X, and secondary colors on ABCmouse and G also learned about secondary colors today. The boys also learned about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from Daniel 3 and also Elisha and the Chariots (2 Kings 6) from "Jesus Calling."
Wednesday - The boys each had Awanas homework today. B had to learn Psalm 118:1 and G had to learn Matthew 4:10.
Friday - The boys watched Veggie Tales "Jonah." B learned about letters Y and Z, and G learned about letter Y.
Art, Music, and Physical Education:
Monday - We colored pictures today of some of the animals to go with the Aesop's Fables.
Tuesday - The boys colored pictures after reading about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and also did some animal stamping for the Aesop's Fables.
Wednesday - Both the boys got to color pictures and play games at Awanas today.
Friday - G colored a picture just because he wanted to. I see an artist in him, whether through music or actual art of drawing and coloring. He loves it!
Motor and Social Skills, and Critical Thinking:
Monday - We had a rainy day today so we were inside and I decided to sort through ornaments and T-shirts for an event at church we are doing. Both the boys jumped in and wanted to help! They are truly amazing!
Tuesday - Yet another rainy day today and it was cold so we stayed inside. The boys had some fun making dinner and a dessert with Mommy!
Wednesday - Awanas learning and fun with their friends and teachers.
Friday - The boys got haircuts today and read to the people cutting their hair! We had a Thanksgiving Banquet at our church tonight and the boys helped Mommy and Daddy with more ornaments sorting throughout the whole thing and then we had a fun dinner out with Grandma and Grandpa!
Helping with ornaments!
Monday - B wrote lion, turtle, and rooster for the pictures the boys colored.
Tuesday - We made a Carrot Applesauce Cake inspired by the episode in Super Why and we had to guess on some measurements. We actually peeled the apples (with the Pampered Chef apple corer slicer!) and cooked them and then shredded the carrots, and then followed a yellow cake mix box! It came out pretty good and the boys loved this with some ice cream! Who says math can't be fun? :)
Wednesday - G learned about circles today on ABCmouse and B learned about squares.
Friday - B helped me count the ornaments and get them sorted for the event. There were 144 total that we ordered! B also did Math 1-10 on ABCmouse and G learned about number 9.
Science and Social Studies:
Tuesday -Today we discussed what to do in an emergency, such as to dial 911 or to tell an adult. They also learned about "Don't Touch, Get Help" when touching a wall, door, or anything that could be hot or harmful to them.
That's our week! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday week :)
