Homeschool Recap, Mar 30th (Week 26)...

In my life this week...
I didn't post last week because we kinda had a split Spring Break.  Last week, we had school Thurs-Friday, and this week we did school Mon-Wed... and some Saturday, lol.  Last week, Michael and I celebrated our 10th anniversary by sending the kids to grandma's for two nights and just had some time to ourselves.  It was wonderful!  Then we jumped right into a super crazy couple of weeks.  I was majorly busy with my Usborne stuff.  Which is good, of course.  And on Thursday, my mom and I took the boys to the Dallas World Aquarium with our homeschool group. We had a blast!



In our Homeschool this week...
Tot School: Callen is ... very tiring.  Lol.  But he is saying "thank you" sooooo cutely when you give him something for him.  It's very sweet, and ALMOST makes up for his rascal-ness.  Or, y'know, whatever you would call it.

Bible: Preston and I worked on memorizing and understanding Proverbs 10:9, "The man of integrity walks securely, but he who takes crooked paths will be found out."  We also finished out the books of the Bible with Jude and Revelation.  We talked about Esther and rebuilding the temple to finish out the Old Testament readings we had, and then moved on to the New Testament stories including Mary and the Angel, and Jesus being born.  Preston's illustration of Jesus' birthday:
That's God saying "Hi Son!"  Lol!  Love it.

Reading/Writing: From now on, Preston is supposed to be doing about 10 minutes of reading on his own.  He's been doing well with that, because he really enjoys reading.  We finished up the student Workbook, all done with that!

Math: Worked on graphing with some pages from our math book, and..... completed our 100's Chart! We had a 100 Celebration, where Preston got 100 pieces of cereal for breakfast and several silly things like that throughout the day.  He got a neat robot puzzle that had, of course, 100 pieces!
New puzzle!  Callen picked it out for Bubba.
Our Morning Board showing our 100's.
A fun activity involving the 100's chart.
Science:  This week's science them was Frozen Water in Science With Water. We played with ice, of course.  Melted it, saw how it expands, etc.

Music/Art: We didn't do a hymn this week.  We talked about the banjo, and listened to some banjo music.  Looked at our last landscape portrait in Come Look With Me Landscape.

Spanish: We are learning some parts of speech, like tu and usted, and several verbs, like leer (to read), jugar (to play), etc.

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