Well, here we are…just three more weeks of school for the school year. YEAH!!!! Here’s how week 36 and 37 went…
Bible – Micah continues to work in his AWANAS book. He finished the 1st book, so he’s now in the review phase.
Phonics – Micah worked on the sounds for b/d, sh, ch, and wh. He also worked on the verbs to be, to have, and then he worked on contractions. We reviewed all of his sight words he’s learned thus far.
Poetry – Micah’s poem for Week 36 was ‘Spring Planting.’ We used it to review punctuation and uppercase letters. His poem for Week 37 was ‘The Caterpillar.’ We used it to discuss syllables and punctuation.
Math – Micah worked on using tally marks to make groups of five and counting by fives.
Caleb, Fifth Grade
Math – Caleb worked on adding and subtracting on paper; surveys and tally marks; rounding and estimating with two-digit numbers; addition with carrying; adding more than two; adding and subtracting with three-digit numbers; rounding and estimating with three-digit numbers; and adding and subtracting word problems.
English – Caleb worked on using good and well; using negative words; synonyms and antonyms; and homonyms.
Yes…we are nearing the end of the 2013-14 school year. We’re going to just focus on math and phonics for the remaining three weeks b/c we’re gearing up for another move on May 1st. My goal is to be done with schooling before the last week of April…so math and phonics it is.
