Homeschool Week 22

Bible:
Monday - We read about Numbers 13-14 and learned how God told Moses to select leaders from each of the twelve tribes. God also became angry with the Israelites and their lack of faith, and had them wonder in the desert for 40 years. The only people able to go into the Promised Land was Caleb and Joshua because of their faith.

Tuesday - Today's reading was in Deuteronomy 31-34, where Moses passed on at Mt. Sinai and Joshua becomes the new leader.  We read about Rahab hiding the spies on her roof and asking for protection for her and her family when they come back to invade the town (Joshua 1-2).

Thursday - We read about Joshua 1-4 and 6 about crossing the Jordan River and how it stopped flowing long enough for the the people to cross, like the Red Sea.  Twelve stones were picked from the center of the river to represent each of the tribes.  We also read about how they marched around the wall of Jericho and after 7 days and 7 times circling the walls, with a shout for the Lord it fell down.

Math:
Monday - The boys worked in their math workbooks today. G filed in numbers 1-8 in the correct spots, and B worked on single and double digit addition.


Tuesday - We went to the children's museum today, and the boys thought it would be fun to count the number of steps we climbed.  There was 38 plus an additional 52, so I had B do the math!

Friday - B worked on math equations adding to 10, and also skip counting by 2's.

Social Studies:
Monday - We read about what the daily life of an Old Testament nomad consisted of.  They lived in tents, kept flocks of animals, and had no permanent homes until entering Canaan. 

Tuesday - One of the local children's museums has a free day once a month, so we got a chance to get there this month! The boys got to pretend to be fire fighters by dressing up and going down a pole in a child sized play fire house and fire truck, they got to be athletes by running different races and climbing, movie directors and actors in a theater with sound effects, a construction worker building a house, an astronaut, and also a vet and doctor with X-rays.


We also learned of the diet of the people in Canaan and the importance of grapes.  Flax was also important for making rope and linens.  It was dried on flat roof tops and believed this is what the spies hid in that Rahab helped. 

Friday - B did some ABCmouse and Lesson 58 was on Things We Use Everyday.  He learned about Alexander Graham Bell inventing the telephone and how he was helped by Lewis Latimore, who also came up with the special drawings inventors use.  We also learned about Thomas Edison inventing the light bulb, phonograph and movie camera. 

Science:
Monday - We had some fun doing experiments in our Magic School Bus Club.  One of the experiments was making gas by mixing ingredients and it inflated a balloon on the top of a soda bottle!  We learned how to turn to liquids into a solid, how to make slime,and also how to turn the slime into a rubber like material.  They love getting this kit once a month, and being scientists!

Friday - Lesson 59 in ABCmouse was on the parts of plants and flowers.  The boys learned some vocabulary words like leaves, roots, stem, seed and that plants need water, nutirents, sunlight and carbon dioxide to grow.

Language Arts:
Monday - We read chapters 4- 8 in Pirates Past Noon today.

Wednesday - We finished Pirates Past Noon, and also read Little Love Letters from God.  B worked on some fill in the blanks for letters with -ip in his workbook.  He also did Lesson 21 on proper nouns and addresses, and Lesson 22 where we read a story called "The Little Girl Who Wanted to be Dirty" in First Language Lessons.  He also had to answer reading comprehension questions.  G did Lesson 15 in 100 Easy Lessons, and his new words were it, sit, ear, seed, rat,meet, and mad.

Thursday - G worked on Lesson 16 in ABCmouse called Reading Letters Kk-Ll.  B worked on letter o and e sounds in his workbook.  He also did Lesson 23 and 24 in First Language Lessons where we reviewed nouns and he gave some examples of some, and also had to do reading comprehension questions for the story "After a Bath." We also started the book, Night of the Ninjas and read the first two chapters. 


Friday - B did Lesson 57 in ABCmouse and learned how to read the words spot and stop, and learned what an action verb is. (things that are happening now and have ing on the end) He added ing to do, start, ask, jump and his sight word of the day was after.  We all read chapters 3-4 in Night of the Ninjas.

Writing:
Monday - The boys wrote the numbers 1-10 in parts of their math workbooks today.

Wednesday - G wrote letters r and t, and B had to write out our full address.

Thursday - B wrote the words on, not, got, box, hot, top, get, ten, let, red, men and yes.

Electives:
Monday - We took a walk outside and B rode his bike.

Tuesday - We had a field trip to the children's museum so the boys got to play with other kids, climb, and dance.  They worked on a rocket ship craft an got to meet Daniel Tiger.  B had so much fun playing with this little 18 month little girl.  Her parents came up to me and let me know how kind he was and how proud I should be of him for raising such a nice boy.  What a compliment to receive and I am so insanely proud of both boys :)


 

Wednesday - B made a Sonic comic book, and G worked on a cut and paste activity for letter t.


Thursday - G worked on Lesson 15  in ABCmouse, on colors in the classroom.

Friday - We got a chance to get outside today and play on the swings, and the boys pretended to be Jack and Annie from The Magic Treehouse books.

  7. We just started reading the Magic school bus series- it's so much fun! I went over to the scientist club website you've linked here and I'm thrilled! It says the experiments are meant for ages 5-10- so do you recommend it for a 4 year old? or maybe I should wait for another year or two?

    We live in Chile, so I'll have to figure the international shipping rates too. Do you have any post with more details on it? pls let me know!

    Thanks for linking up to Practical Mondays- Pinning & tweeting your post. See you again next monday!

    1. Hi, The Practical Mom! The Magic School Bus series are amazing! My sons love them also so they were very excited about the kits! My youngest is 4, and he enjoys them very much. How exciting to live in Chile! I know The Magic School Bus kits just started shipping internationally from that site this month, but I'm not sure the shipping rates. If you click on the link above, it will direct you to the site where you can check the shipping rates and information before ordering. They are also offering a sale with an extra 10% off now, and 10% back in credits to get something next time you order. (Use code EDUCENTSLOVE for this, but it expires 2/18/16) If you are a new customer, they may also give you a credit for signing up. They are an awesome site; I get many of our homeschool things from there. All of our last few weeks of homeschool wrap ups will also show more of the experiments. I'm so happy to have linked up with Practical Mondays! Thanks for pinning and tweeting my post! Hope you have a wonderful week :)
