Week 3 of 2010

This week was another very successful school week.  The kids loved it, I loved it and they wanted more and more work to do!
For school this week we read these books:

For our lessons this week this is what we did:

BIBLE-We read Bible stories from Moses praying for Victory to Moses Shining Face after he came down out of the tent from talking to God.  There were coloring sheets for the kids to go along with 3 of these stories.

HISTORY-We read Discovery in the Cave to review discovery.  They watched part of the Prince of Egypt movie, we never got to finish it.  On Wednesday we added a game that went with Health for last week, it's a board game on brushing your teeth.  The kids also started an Adam & Eve lapbook.  Thursday we read about Adam & Even in our Bible and today we will go over Cain & Abel.

WRITING & JOURNAL-Copywork for the letters of the alphabet.  We are working through the alphabet to start with.  Stinky has journal topics to write each day.  She has to write 3 sentences.

PHONICS-Stinky finished Hooked on Phonics Level 4 and can't wait to finish Level 5 and be done with phonics.  Bubba has been working on a lapbook all week for the letter A.  We have read books to go along with the lapbook also.

READING-Bubba and I finished the War of the Worlds Illustrated Classic Editions and he loved it!  We also read a book together each day this week.  Stinky and I read chapters in her Barbie book.  Today Bubba and I are going to start a easy reader chapter book of Spongebob and Sandy.  Stinky has to read a story in her Bible each morning.

LANGUAGE ARTS-We started reading Charlotte's Web this week as our read aloud. Both kids are working on a notebook as we read each chapter.  Bubba is just drawing the pictures, Stinky draws a picture and writes about it.  We covered English subjects this week also, and we will continue this through out the year.  This week they learned what sentences were, basic punctuation, nouns, verbs and adjectives.  I have a great book that helps me go through this and I can add more to it to reinforce the lesson.  It's called What Your Second Grader Needs to Know.

HEALTH-Our last week of health was safety week.  We read a book called Being Safe and it was a read together book.  One page for the adult, one for the child.  Stinky and I read it, while Bubba listened.  We had Diana Dialer and Safe T. Cat coloring books that went over 911.  Wednesday we covered fire safety.  Thursday we went over bike safety, car safety, stranger safety and they watched a movie called Safety Awareness that we got at the library.  Today we are going to read these hilarious books that I have had since I was a little kid called The Thingumajig Book of Health and Safety. I just love those Thingumajigs.  We have one other book of theirs.  The kids LOVE them!

MATH-Bubba learned how to count by 2s, 5s and 10s this week.  We found some awesome videos on youtube to help.  I wonder if I can figure out how to get them to embed in my post....let's check it out.....

We'll see if that works....Stinky is reviewing money and subtraction at the same time.  Yesterday she learned how to borrow.

Well that is our week.  It was another great one and we praise Jesus for that!!
