Homeschool Recap, May 11th (Week 32)...

In our Homeschool this week...
Tot School: Callen's vocabulary is continuing to expand by the day... repeating everything, putting words together to form sentences, singing songs.  So exciting!

Bible: Preston and I went over Proverbs 19:21 (which is a personal favorite of mine, definitely something that needs to be remembered constantly!), "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails."  We also finished up our Bible Timeline by reading and talking about the church, Paul's conversion, Peter in jail and the New Heaven and the New Earth.  Preston read me all of his summaries written in the Bible Notebook as a review.

Reading/Writing: We went over a few things as review, such as "What is an author?" and things like that.  We are finishing up Hank the Cowdog #13 at bedtime, and he's been reading stories to himself and his little brother all week.  =)

Math: We continued the Math Mammoth chapter reviews and he did very well again.  Seems to have all the concepts down he was suppose to learn in First Grade, at least according to MM's curriculum.


Science:  This week's science from book Science with Plants was about plants and soil.

Music/Art: Nothing new this week.  His "art" lesson was to use the I Can Draw Animals book to draw some pictures for the Mother's Day cards we sent to the grandmas.  I caught him singing and humming "Holy Holy Holy" a lot this week... he says it's his favorite hymn that we learned this year.  That makes me happy to hear.

Spanish: We informally reviewed some various Spanish topics and words throughout the day.  I'd just point at something and ask how to say it in Spanish, or mention something in Spanish and have him tell me what I was talking about.

This was our last full week of lessons.  Next week we have basically just review for three days, and he's done with First Grade!  Wow!

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