Homeschool Recap, Mar 9th (Week 24)...

In my life this week...
Well, we scored a van this week so I have been busy going places!  I had two Usborne events yesterday, at opposite ends of the Metroplex - and the van was awesome!  Praise God!!  That kept me busy all week... car stuff and book stuff.  Oh, and Callen's birthday and party!

In our Homeschool this week...
Tot School: Callen is just racking up the new words... finally!!!  He still enjoys dry-erase markers and the white board.  When I tell Preston it's time for school, Callen runs over to his drawer, points at his markers and says, "ME!"  He can't be left out!  A few days ago, we were out running errands and as we were heading home from our last stop he fell asleep in the van.  I decided to stop and get gas, and when I was done pumping, Preston needed to go to the bathroom. So, I had to unbuckle Callen and pull him out of the warm car seat and out into the chilly, drizzly weather... he suddenly sprung awake and started asking, "What?!  What?!!"  It was so cute... he hadn't really used that word before, so him using it like, "What's going on?" was so great!

Bible: Preston and I worked on memorizing and understanding Proverbs 21:30, "There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that succeed against the Lord."  Also went over Philemon through 1 Peter in the New Testament books, as well as talked about the prophets Elijah and Elisha.

Reading/Writing: Reviewed alphabetical order.

Math: Continued working on 2-digit adding and subtracting in his Complete Book of Math

Science:  This week's science them was "Tricks with Water & Air in Science With Water.

Music/Art: This week we started the hymn, "America, the Beautiful." We talked about the cello and stringed bass!  We looked an abstract landscape paitning.  And we skipped Drawing with Children this week... just didn't have time (again).
Spanish: We continued with school/classroom words and worked in the Complete Book of Spanish.

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