Week 4: Living & Non-Living Things Part 2

Monday - Today, we finished up Chapter 2 in Believe Storybook and learned about Luke 24: 1-12, and that "He has Risen!"  The boys learned Ephesians 2:8 and why we need to pray to God.  This book has been absolutely amazing if you have young children and are looking to teach Biblically sound curriculum!

Thursday - I read Mark 1: 1-5 tonight and the boys loved learning that the originator of the "Fishers of Men" was not The Newsboys, but it was Jesus and it is in the Bible.

Monday - G worked on his Math Readiness Stickers book and put his stickers into the right place for numbers 1-12.

Tuesday - B did Free Counting Puzzles from 123Homeschool4Me and did the counting by 5's puzzles.  He also worked on a Horizons math worksheet learning before, after and in between for numbers.

Wednesday - We went to the library today and the librarian taught the boys the finger play, Five Little Bees Sitting in a Tree.

Social Studies:
Thursday - The boys were excited to find Catan Family Edition so we waited for Daddy to get home from work and we played as a family.  We had played this game at my husband's aunt and uncle's house in Washington and it is a ton of fun!  You have to set up a village and learn to trade and barter.

Monday - B worked on a Living and Non-living booklet from The Mailbox.

Tuesday - Today, the boys had to cut pictures out of a magazine that were examples of living and non-living things and then we made chart.

Friday - The boys worked on their Hot Wheels track and had to measure and experiment on how many track pieces it would take to accomplish their loop finish.

Language Arts:
Monday - B read his very first book, Go, Dog. Go! by: Dr. Seuss all by himself.  The boys celebrated by grabbing their Star Wars light sabers and quoting The Princess Bride, "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." I love that they love the classic 80's movies my husband and I grew up watching!

Tuesday - G did Lesson 54 in ABCmouse called Reading the Letter W.  B had to circle words that began with the consonant C in his workbook, then had to write them.

Wednesday - We went to the library and were introduced to a new author, Marianne Berkes who writes books similar to the storylines of Over in the Meadow and This is the House that Jack Built.  We read Over in the Jungle, Marsh Music and The Tree That Bear Climbed all by this author.  We then watched an Over in the Meadow video.

Thursday - The boys did the Eggy Vocabulary app.

Friday - B learned that a noun is a person, place, thing or idea and we learned about common nouns in First Language Lessons

Tuesday - B wrote air, shelter, food and water.  G wrote big a and little A.

Friday - B made a story about Alvin and the Chipmunks, and G absolutely astonished me as I saw my 4 year old write the word green.  I have only taught him letter a but because he has been watching his brother learn over the last 2 years, I realized he is picking things up even when I think he is not paying attention!

Monday - The boys played the musical instruments toys we got in Mexico for celebrating Jesus as we did our Bible study today.  B also colored and cut his booklet for his science lesson.  We also made it outside to walk our dog and wash the car!  We also played on the playground and it was the first day it actually started to feel like fall.

Tuesday - We made a chart today of living and non-living things for science and the boys used old magazines to cut out examples of each.

Wednesday - The boys got to play with their cousins today as we visited and my sister did my hair, and the boys also!  They also sang and danced to Sally the Swinging Snake at the library and learned some more fun finger plays.

Thursday - The boys had a playdate today with their friends.

Friday - The boys colored and made pictures for their Alvin and the Chipmunks story.

That's our week. Is it starting to get cool where you live? We are ready for some more cooler fall days! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful week :)
