Week #7

Week #7 This post is only two weeks late, not bad:) So what did we do this week?
My YD - worked on shapes. She knows her shapes so we just do random review.
- Did a little letter Ii review and started learning letter Oo.
- We practiced numbers 1-3 and introduced number 4.
- She also did some size sorting from smallest to largest and largest to smallest.

Here she is glueing different shapes to make a picture. I believe this was a printable from DLTK Kids.

She really enjoyed this size sorting activity I got from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

For our Letter I review she colored in letter I sheets with ink.

For Letter O we glued cheerios on letter O sheets.
For 6th grade OD - worked on Life pac #3 sect 3. Writing a Report and Skimming articles to find facts. She will be writing about why we celebrate Veterans Day.
- For Math she worked on lessons 25-28 reducing fractions and working with mixed numbers.
- For History we learned about The Spread of Slavery and Queen Nzinga of Angola.
- For Science- she started her lessons on Venus.
OD working on L.A in her Pj's!!!

One of our science that we did this week that should have been done last week was building a mercury out of clay.

We made some "lava" using flour and butter for our Venus Unit.

We are still learning about Rembrandt. It is not all that consistent so it has taken awhile.

What fun would it be without some shots of some leaf jumping!!!

Week #6

This has been what will most likely be our hardest week of school. My father-in-law passed away on Tuesday. It was not completely unexpected but certainly sooner than we had anticipated. Teaching kids about death and heaven is not an easy task. But when they have to experience it personally it is a very hard thing to do, especially when my kids have been praying for their Grandpa to heal. Kids have such faith even though we adults tend to doubt. We were told by doctors that he had 2 more months to live. We take that as fact but not the kids they pray with such amazing faith that God would heal him. I so want faith like theirs!! He was a saved man that loved the Lord!! So as hard as it was for all of us we are so happy to know that he is in heaven rejoicing.

I will still post what we did get done this week even though we were only here for 3 days.
We didn't do any preschool.
OD for Math got through lesson #24 in her Saxon.
She finished Unit 3 Sect 3 L.A
We did Chap #6 , Strangers and Saints in Plymouth, The Dutch in the New World.
In Health we are learning about the Skeleton and Joints. OD made a "Mr. Skeleton" I printed from Enchanted

For Science we worked on Lesson 3 Mercury.

Week #4-5

For YD preschool we have worked on learning letter Ii, number 3, squares and doing a week of reviewing letters and numbers already learned. Week#4 I didn't take alot of pics.

Sorry for the shirtless girl I am lucky she at least has bottoms on.

We have been doing alot of bird watching as a family. Looking through books and trying to figure out what kind of birds keep visiting.
So this week OD has done Saxon Math lessons 15-23, SOTW 3 chapters 3&4 (we took a field trip to Jamestown that I will post soon) and finished lesson #2 The Sun in science. She is currently finishing up her paper mache sun. (We are making our own sun for our solar system since the one we have didn't come with one.)

OD started LA Lifepac #3, skimming and outlining information.

She worked on her Earth globe for Geography.

And finished!!!!

We worked on the different parts of a story using Love To Write.
