Here’s how this week went for us…
Micah, First Grade
Bible – Micah’s lesson was on “My Bible Teaches Me Forgiveness,” and we read 1 Samuel 24:1-17 to accompany the lesson.
LLATL – This week Micah completed another book for his program. We also started working on the letters ‘e, x’ and the sight words ‘O.K., just, for.’ We also worked on adjectives and reading comprehension.
Math – This week Micah worked on the concept of fractions (whole and half); telling time to 10 and 15 minutes past the hour; telling time to 20, 25, and 30 minutes past the hour; counting by 2s to 20; and understanding non-standard units of measure.
History – Micah continued to learn about “God Keeps His Promise.”
Science – This week Micah learned about snakes, lizards, turtles & crocodiles. We also used this week to catch-up on all of our “extra” science activities.
Caleb, Sixth Grade
Bible – This week Caleb’s lesson was on “Provision in the Wilderness,” and we read Exodus 15-18 to accompany the lesson.
Math – This week Caleb worked on multiplication; multiplying in your head; multiplying more than two; and division basics.
Reading – This week Caleb took his test over The Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare.
Geography – This week Caleb learned facts about Arkansas and Michigan.
Writing – This week Caleb completed his writing assignment which was an Active Person Poem. He then began the next chapter on commands. Part of his lesson was following verbal directions to make a snowflake.
Science – This week Caleb read the same information as Micah; however, he also read about rattlesnakes.
We have next week off in order to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. My parents and youngest brother will be joining us for Thanksgiving, and we are super excited to be seeing them. We haven’t seen them since July, so the visit is highly anticipated.
