Homeschool Recap, March 22nd (Week 29)...

In our Homeschool this week...
Tot School: We continued the 1plus1plus1equals1.net "Tot School" printables this week with letter "X" for Xylophone/Musical Instruments!  We read a few books having to do with music: Boom Bah!, Play Me A Story and Animal Music.

Bible:   This week's name of Jesus was "Good Shepherd." Preston's memory verse is John 10:14 and we looked up verses in The Discoverer's Bible that talked about Jesus being a shepherd and us being the lambs.  We added to the Names of Jesus branch, which is nearly full!  Wow.

Reading/Writing: We continued Spelling by Sound & Structure. Continued with lesson 70-72 in Primary Language Lessons. We finished Mountain Born, and Preston wrote a brief report on it (a few sentences).

History: This week Preston learned about four states: Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada and Nebraska and we read a book for each of them... Wagon Wheels, When I Was Young In the Mountains, Hoover Dam and Dandelions.

Math: Preston continued Part B of Math Mammoth, Second Grade.  Finished Chapter 9 on adding and subtracting money, and did the chapter review, mixed review and chapter test.  Also, did a subtraction with regrouping worksheet to continue practicing that skill.

Science:  This week's lessons were about magnets, and we started off with a couple of pages in The First Encyclopedia of Science.  Then we moved on to the "Fun With Magnets" kit and did a few of the projects in there - like floating a bar magnet on water and it pointing North to make a compass.

Music/Art: Our patriotic song this week was "Battle Hymn of the Republic."  We also continued our World's Greatest Artists, Vol 1 unit study, with our sixth artist: Pablo Picasso. This week, we read from Picasso, Paris in the Spring with Picasso and When Pigasso met Mootisse (just for fun).  Preston finished coloring Three Musicians. We listened to another track from Tchaikovsky Sleeping Beauty and continued the story.

Spanish: Since we are done with Salsa, and don't have the next disc for Las Clase Divertida... we've slowed down on Spanish work lately.  We used a cheap, little work book on food this week just to review those terms and finished it up as well! 

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