Homeschool Week 27

Hi, friends! One of these days I will be caught up on our homeschool lessons!  We just wrapped up Week 29 so I am hoping to complete these 2 weeks into one blog post so I can catch up on my homeschool posts.  We have had many things going on in life lately and I am glad that our homeschool lessons haven't been effected too much. This is for the week of March 14-19. Thanks for stopping by to share our week :)  

Wednesday - Today, we read 1 Samuel 13-14 about Saul disobeying God by offering a sacrifice, when only certain people could offer a sacrifice and he was not one of them. He tried waiting for Samuel, but decided to act on his own.

Saturday - When Saul disobeyed God, God rejects him as king.  God tells Samuel to go to Bethlehem and pick one of Jesse's sons.  Samuel thought it would be the oldest son, but God said not to be fooled by outward appearances and look at who the person is on the inside.  God picks David, the youngest who was tending the sheep. We also read about how David kills Goliath in the name of the Lord. (1 Samuel 15-17)  They also had a memory verse from their Christian Kids Explore Creation Science textbook. (Colossians 1:16)

Monday - G worked on Lesson 24 in ABCmouse on numbers 1-10, and B worked on number sentences for addition and subtraction.

Wednesday - Disney Movie Club sends some fun activities in the mail from time to time, and this month they sent a connect the dots 1-49 so the boys connected the dots and counted 1-49.

Friday - The boys did Lesson 3 in Math-U-See and we covered length measurement and using mainpulatives to build numbers.

Saturday - We had the cousins over today after the boys soccer game, so the boys played The Game of Life with them.  They also did dot to dot skip counting by 3's.

The Game of Life

Social Studies:
Monday - The boys did Lesson 68 in ABCmouse on Benjamin Franklin.  We learned that the colonists walked and rode a horse to get somewhere, they used candles and fires to see and to keep warm, there were no phones, people grew their own food and hunted, and they played instruments or toys such as marbles for fun.  We learned about the Liberty Bell being made over 250 years ago, and that it rang for the first time on July 8, 1776 while the Declaration of Independence was being read at Independence Hall in Pennsylvania.

Wednesday - The boys learned about some missionaries in our church that are serving in Kansas right now, so they learned some fun facts about Kansas at church tonight.

Thursday - We read chapter 2 in the book, Leprechauns and Irish Folklore for St. Patrick's Day today and we learned about ballybogs, grogochs, merrowes, dullahans, pookes, banshees, fear dearg, clnchauns, and of course leprechauns!  They also pulled out their Leap Frog Puzzle to locate Kansas.

Friday - We worked in More StoryTime Treasures from Memoria Press on The Story About Ping.  We had the boys look at a map of China and identify the Yangtze River from the story.  B also worked on Lesson 71 in  ABCmouse on America's Independence.

Monday - B learned about the sandy desert environment and camels today in ABCmouse.

Thursday - B worked on Lesson 70 in ABCmouse on Reptiles.  The boys also worked on experiments in Magic School Bus Science Club.  They learned that the magnets could pull the loadstone, but were not strong enough to pick it up.  They also noted that the loadstone could not pick up the iron filings, but the magnets could.  They also did an experiment where the magnets with the same poles were able to repel the magnetic car backward.

Friday - We started the first chapter in Christian Kids Explore Creation Science today and learned new vocabulary words and definitions such as science, creation, and how creationist views and evolutionist views of science are different.

G also did Lesson 26 in ABCmouse on the four seasons, with a main focus on summer.

Language Arts:
Monday - B learned how to make words plural by adding s or es in part of his ABCmouse lessons today.  His sight words of the day were after, first, live, put, time and water.

Wednesday - The boys worked together in Read, Write, Type on phonics of t, c, and j while also identifying where they are on a computer keyboard.

Thursday - G worked on letters q and r today in ABCmouse and was 35% complete his lessons for his second half of the year at Lesson 25.

Friday - The boys answered reading comprehension questions today from More StoryTime Treasures from Memoria Press on The Story About Ping.  B used his Children's Dictionary for the first time to check to see if his vocabulary guesses were correct. Check out our review on More StoryTime Treasures from Memoria Press here.

Saturday - G's lessons in ABCmouse were on reviewing letters m through r, and B's lessons were on regular action verbs and pronouns.

Friday - B had to answer and fill in the blank questions from More StoryTime Treasures from Memoria Press.
