Hi, friends! These lessons are from the week of March 28 - April 2. I think I am going to be giving myself and the boys the first week in May off so I can get caught up posting our lessons, and also getting my oldest son ready for his portfolio review. That is also when they have my husband's surgery rescheduled so hopefully I will be caught up on homeschool posts soon. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have an amazing week :)
Monday - Today, we read in 1 Kings 5-8 and 10 about King Solomon building the Great Temple out of the cedar trees from Lebanon. We also learned how the Queen of Sheba found out how wise Solomon was and brought gifts to the king. The memory verse of the day was Genesis 1:1.
Tuesday - We read about the good and bad figs in Jeremiah 24 today, and how figs are associated with prosperity. It was correalting to people who have good hearts and are obedient to God are good figs, and the people whose hearts will not change and be obedient to God are bad figs. We also read about King Nebuchadnezzar bringing Israelites to Babylon. (We use Tapestry of Grace Primer for most of our Bible and Social Studies activities related to Biblical stories)
Tuesday - The boys did tally marks for the number of ducks in Ping's family from The Story About Ping.
Thursday - Today, we did lesson 1.2 in Naming, Comparing and Arranging Numbers from A+ Interactive Math. The boys learned about counting numbers past 100, up to 1,000. They were asked what number is this, what number is missing and how would they write the number to identify it.
Friday - We taught the boys how to play Uno today.
Saturday - We played Monopoly today and also had the boys practice with more tally marks for a chart my husband and sons made for WrestleMania.
Tuesday - The boys learned about the Assyrian and Babylonian Empire today. The Assyrians ruled the Babylonians and then the Babylonians defeated them. We learned that this went along the timelines of David and Solomon to Daniel and also Jonah and Gideon. We also learned some fun facts about China from the language they speak and the capital, from a unit in Memoria Press More StoryTime Treasures. We thought it would be fun to introduce the boys to Siri on the iPad to confirm their answers, and they thought it was great!
Monday - Today, we did Experiment 1 in Magic School Bus Science Club and we had to prepare petri dishes. We learned about how different bacteria and fungus (fungi for plural) can be both good and bad for your body. Bacteria are 1 cell big, and too small to see with the eye.
Tuesday - We did Experiment 2 today in Magic School Bus Science Club after the petri dishes were prepared from yesterday. The boys had to put their fingers on one side of the dish and then go wash their hand with soap, and put their finger smudge on the other side of the petri dish. Experiment 3 had them take a swab of their tongue, between their toes, their hair and arm to test on the other petri dish.
Wednesday - No documented change on either petri dish.
Thursday - We started to see a difference today in the tongue segment of the petri dish.
Friday - We read the book, Wonderfully Made today. I am going to be reviewing this book soon, but if you are looking for an excellent children's book on how to explain the birth of a baby from a Creation Science view, this is it.
Monday - G did a lesson in ABCmouse today on letters w and x, and B did a lesson on the long vowel sounds of i and o. (Lesson 78)
Tuesday - We finished the last two chapters of Dolphins at Daybreak.
Thursday - The boys did some lessons in Read, Write & Type today (check out my review on this fun software here). They learned how to type and spell the words hit, hat, sit, sass, fast, fist, cat, bat, rat, and had the emphasis on the phonetic sound of letter s. They also worked on the phonetic sound of letter k with the words king, kiss, keyboard, kit, kite, kick and sick. They had to match a picture to the correct sentence and also had to read 2 storybooks, that were similar to beginner readers. (This software is great because it also helps with spelling and vocabulary, and fulfilled B's writing for the day)
Friday - B worked on Lesson 79 in ABCmouse and learned words with ue and ew. We also started the first two chapters of Ghost Town at Sundown.
Tuesday - The boys colored a picture of Ping and a map of China as part of their unit in Memoria Press More StoryTime Treasures.
Wednesday - We went to Senior Night for one of our close friends daughter. She is a senior this year in high school and it was their last home game.
Friday - B had fun making pizza for lunch out of biscuit dough, tomato sauce, sausage and cheese. The boys also got a chance to play outside with their friends later in the afternoon.
Saturday - The boys had an early soccer game today, so afterwards we decided to walk the farmers market and downtown area in the next town over. The boys got a chance to look at the different vendors with fresh produce and flowers, art, food, and crafts. Later on that night, the boys made a chart using Kwik Stix for WrestleMania.
We found a cool bench and the boys wanted a picture with them sitting on it.
An artist painted a giraffe on the tree and it's so cool because it looks like the giraffe is eating the leaves!
On the other side of the tree, the artist painted an ostrich.
My oldest son and I absolutely fell in love with this old building from 1929.
One of those rare photos of me and the boys!
Hope you all are doing well and thanks for stopping by to share our week :)
