Homeschol Week 9: Asia

It has been a busy few weeks so I am a bit late posting.  Here is last week's lessons and I hope to have this week's lessons up soon.  Thanks for stopping by to share our week :)

Monday - Today, we learned about Naomi, Ruth and Boaz in Believe Storybook.  The lesson was to help people who are in need, and how God can bring blessings we would have never imagined through this.

Tuesday - The boys followed along in their children's Bible and watched the video for chapters 1-6 in The Beginner's Bible Collector's Edition.  I love this because it helps not only teach them stories in this Bible, but also my first grader can read along and get to know more words to read!

Wednesday - We learned about the story of the Good Samaritan in Believe Storybook today.  The lesson was to be a good neighbor and friend, and to help people in need.

Thursday - Chapter 9 in  Believe Storybook was about Hannah and Samuel, a very special story to me.  My blog is named after this story because I almost lost both of my sons at delivery.  I dedicated them right back to God and wanted to raise them to be godly men.  God is so good.  My life and my sons lives could have been taken, and He is amazing to continue to bless us, and we honor and praise Him for that.

Monday - B did Lesson 21 in ABCmouse today called Ivan and His Inventions about trapezoids, rectangles, triangles and hexagons and the shapes they can make together.  Lesson 22 was called Equations to 10, and he is starting to learn his addition equations!

Tuesday - G practiced writing number 5 today and completed his math worksheet on 5, by counting 1-5 and listening to the directions.

Wednesday - The boys made a number caterpillar today by organizing 10-100 in order by 10's.

Thursday - B did Lesson 23 in ABCmouse called Math on the Farm.

Friday - B did worksheet 9 in his workbook on addition equations.

Social Studies:
Monday- We learned about the continent of Asia this week in What Your First Grader Needs to Know.  Asia is the biggest continent, has the biggest country (Russia), countries that have the most people (China) and India, and also the highest mountains. 

Tuesday - We learned about fire safety from the Clifford magazine October 2010 edition.  We learned about things that are ok and not ok o to touch; stop, drop and roll; and also went over how to call 911 and what our address is to tell to the operator.

Thursday - I had a worksheet from The Mailbox on The Story of Marco Polo.  It is the story of his family heading to China from Italy, and what happened upon their return to Italy.

Friday - B did Lesson 24 in ABCmouse called Explore the Continents with Carla.

Tuesday - We learned about plants and animals today in What Your First Grader Needs to Know.  We compared our body parts to seeds, roots, stems and trunks of plants.  The boys learned that the plants need water, air, and sunlight for the plant to produce nutrients for its survival.

Language Arts:
Monday - G did Lesson 62 in ABCmouse called Reading: Put it Together, R-Z.  B did Lesson 22 called What's the Story? Aesop's Fables- The Tortoise and the Hare.

Tuesday - B did Lesson 5 on Introduction Story Narration in his Language Arts book and we also read about The Rabbit and the Turtle.  We did some reading comprehension questions.

Wednesday - Today, we read the books Franklin's Halloween and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.

Thursday - To go along with our Social Studies lesson, the boys had to take the story sheets and sequence them back in order.

Friday - Today, B did Lesson 25 on ABCmouse called Meet Mr. Wordsmith.

Tuesday - G wrote the number 5.

Wednesday - B wrote the words: China, Panda Bear, India, Elephant, Asian Tiger, Russia and Polar Bear.

Thursday - B wrote the word, Asia.

Monday - G did Lesson 61 on ABCmouse called Art: Brown.  The boys had a friend come over to play, and we took a walk and rode bikes.

Tuesday - Today, the boys had some Play doh fun and they made a scene of water, trees, land, a turtle, hare and even Peter Pan and their version of a Minion from all the lessons so far this week.

Wednesday - B colored and drew today.

Thursday - The boys had a playdate with their cousins today, which has been great because we just learned my brother-in-law's job is being transferred out of state, so we won't be seeing them as much.

My sister's house has a farm behind it and the cows are very friendly! 

Friday - My aunt and uncle were visiting from out of state and came to my sister's today to see all of us.  It is always a joy to see them :)

That's our week!  Hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween :)
