Hi, friends! Thanks for stopping by to share our homeschool week! I am so glad I get a chance to write down what we do, because it always seems like I don't do enough until I see written what we have accomplished in a week. Do you ever feel that way?

Monday - Today, we read about Exodus 3-4 and Exodus 5-10, about Moses and the burning bush. God spoke to Moses and told him tell the Pharaoh He is "I Am Who I Am" (Yahweh) and to let His people go. Plagues came to pass over Egypt, and yet Pharaoh would not let the people go. We also did a review of all the Biblical stories and characters we learned so far.
Tuesday - We read about Exodus 11-12 and the death of all first born sons in Egypt, not to put the lamb blood over their door to protect the house and be passed over. We learned that Egyptians believed in many gods and goddesses, but how the truth is there is only one God.
Thursday - Today, we read about Exodus 13-15 and 16-17 on God parting the Red Sea, and also how He provided manna from heaven to feed the people.
Saturday - The boys and I read about the Ten Commandments today in Exodus 19-20, and God's Holy laws in Leviticus 1-27. We also read about the meaning of Yahweh in the book, I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God.
Thursday - The boys did some STEM today as they played with some Hot Wheels track, and built the ultimate track. They had to learn the different angles so that the track would be supported where they wanted it to be, so that the cars would race around the track correctly.
Friday - My sons love playing board games, and its a good way for them to practice their 1:1 ratio and counting each space. They love The Game of Life, so we played that today with Gamma.
Monday - We learned the importance of sheep to the Egyptians because they provided milk, wool for clothes, and meat to eat. There were trade markets in Ancient Egypt, and how they only traded with other countries when there wasn't enough grain grown for that season. Grain was their most important crop because it provided means to make bread and beer. They also ate many vegetables, and mostly the rich people ate meat and fish. We also learned they believed in the after life, and we learned about mummies.
Wednesday - We read about Ancient Egyptian painting and writing, and also that they had a system of math and medicine.
Thursday - Today's lessons were on pyramids, and the end of the Ancient Egyptian civilization.
Monday - They had a fun adventure at our local library today. They did an experiment of sticking their hands in ice cold water, then they had to had to stuff shortening into a zip up bag, and then use another zip up bag as a glove. When they stuck their hands in this time, it was surrounded by the shortening, and they couldn't feel the ice cold water! They learned that many animals have what is called blubber to help keep them warm such as polar bears, seals, and whales. It was an awesome experiment!
Monday - G did an alphabet puzzle today at the library and told me the phonics of each letter. We also read Froggy Gets Dressed while we waited for the science experiment to start.
Friday - I have been blessed to be able to be a part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew this year, and one of the reviews to come soon on the blog is The Dragon and the Raven (Disclosure: I was given a complimentary copy of this product in exchange for an honest review) We listened to CD 1 today and it is remarkable! It has amazing sound effects, great narration, and is a heroic tale with morals. B also worked on some more short vowels and middle sound phonics.
Tuesday - B wrote his vowels, and G wrote the letters e and i.
Wednesday - B wrote his vocabulary words of the week which were pyramid, sarcophagus, locust, chariot, tabernacle, I Am, Aaron, and Joshua.
Monday - At the library today, the other families there were also homeschool families so the boys got to play, learn, and talk with fellow homeschoolers. B also drew a Star Wars picture.
Tuesday - The boys colored a sheet on the 10 plagues from Tapestry of Grace: Primer curriculum.
Wednesday - The boys learned how to write their names in hieroglyphics from Tapestry of Grace: Primer curriculum.
Thursday - We built a "pyramid" today out of chairs and blankets, and also attempted to make a pyramid out of Lego.
Friday - We took a walk outside and B rode his bike.
That's our week! Thanks for stopping by to share it with us :)
