Homeschool Recap, Mar 16th (Week 25)...

In my life this week...
Well, we enjoyed our van for just over a week, and then it was involved in a wreck.  Lol.  We did get a lot of errands taken care of in that week, and the freedom was nice.  Now we're back to square one, I guess.  Today is our anniversary, 10 years!  Wow.  We'll celebrate later this weekend... and I'm really looking forward to that.  Other than that, I can't really think of much to report on.  So, on to the homeschool stuff...

A quote to share...
Prestonism: "Hot sauce is my arch enemy!"

In our Homeschool this week...
Tot School: Callen is officially two, and acting every bit of it.  He is constantly in trouble, and yet... turns around with that adorable face and a "mommy!" and I melt.  Oh yeah, he knows how to work it. 

Bible: Preston and I worked on memorizing and understanding Proverbs 25:21, "If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink."  Also went over 2 Peter through 3 John in the New Testament books, as well as talked about the Fiery Furnace and Daniel in the Lion's Den.

Reading/Writing: Worked on antonyms and various things.  Finished up reading Hank the Cowdog #11, The Case of the Unchanted Forest.  We don't have #12, oh no!  Haha.

Math: Worked on reviewing measurement in his Complete Book of Math
Using the ruler to measure.
 Science:  This week's science them was "Taking in Water in Science With Water. We did some fun "experiments" with what would absorb water and what wouldn't.
Newspaper takes in water, but not completely!

Music/Art: Continued the hymn, "America, the Beautiful." We talked about the guitars and electric guitars!  We looked a Picasso portrait. 

Spanish: We went through some songs in Spanish that help review previous words we've learned in the Complete Book of Spanish.  Went back over counting numbers up to 40, and counting by 10's.

We are using My Father's World First Grade. See our curriculum here.
