Homeschool Recap, February 22nd (Week 25)...

In my life this week...
Well... I'm just now getting around to last week's update, oops.  We didn't do school the week before, but had a homeschool meeting and homeschool Valentine's party... and Preston spent the night with Grandma Jill and Grandpa Steve.  Then last week, we got back into the swing of things.

A Picture to share...
Fun at the park. All my boys in the tower!
Batman and... Batman?
In our Homeschool this week...
Tot School: We continued the 1plus1plus1equals1.net "Tot School" printables this week with letter "T" for Trains/Transportation!  We read a few books having to do with trains, like Bear On the Train, Freight Train, And the Train Goes..., Dinosaur Train, Circus Train, Little Book of Train Stories and the Big Book of Big Trains.  He did a great job writing his letters this week!
Some good lookin' T's there!
Bible:   This week's name of Jesus was Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Preston's memory verse is Rev. 17:14 and we looked up verses in The Discoverer's Bible that talked about God is the ultimate authority above all other authorities.
Reading/Writing: We continued Spelling by Sound & Structure. Continued with lesson 58-60 in Primary Language Lessons. We continued our read-aloud, On the Banks of Plum Creek, by Laura Ingalls Wilder. 
Working on writing together.
History: This week Preston learned Iowa and Wisconsin and the California Gold Rush.  We read: Kate Shelley: Bound for Legend, Century Farm, and Gold Fever Tales.

Math: Preston continued Part B of Math Mammoth, Second Grade.  Continued Chapter 8, and continued working on subtracting three-digit numbers and regrouping. 

Science:  This week's lesson was about Atoms & Molecules in Science with Air.  We made some H2O molecules using marshmallows (dipped in two different colors to represent Hydrogen and Oxygen).  The boys enjoyed eating those molecules!  We looked at how dish soap can do all kinds of "magic" using Science in the Kitchen.
Marshmallow molecules.  Yum!
 Music/Art: Our patriotic songs this week are "You're a Grand 'Ole Flag" and "Stars & Stripes Forever."  We also continued our World's Greatest Artists, Vol 1 unit study, with our fourth artist: Van Gogh. We continued learning about the artist by reading Van Gogh, Camille & The Sunflowers and The Yellow House.  Preston also colored Sunflowers and The Bedroom.

Spanish: Continued with the next episode of Salsa. We reviewed words having to do with "Los Deportes" in our First Thousand Words in Spanish and went through some review using the Spanish Words & Phrases Flashcards.

We are using Adventures in My Father's World. See our curriculum here.
