Our First Week Of School Finished!!!

So we made it through our first week of school!!!

We start off our days with a Bible lesson. We are starting with creation. This week we focused on Day 1 and Day 2 of creation.

After Bible 6th grade D does her Saxon Math 76. She did lessons 1-5 and test #1.

She helped me to make rice krispy balls on a stick for our first day of school after school snack!!

We do our Story of The World on M,W and Fridays. Lesson #1 (The Holy Roman Emporer and The Riches of Spain) finished!!!
Then our Exploring Creation through Astronomy on T and Thursdays.

Our Health lesson this week was about cells. We made a cell model out of Jello and candy.

For pre-k we focused on name recognition and the spelling of her name, letter Aa, number 1, triangles, colors and patterns all using an apple theme.

Here she is placing a certain number of apples on the tree.

We made a "snake" with playdough and then shaped it into an Aa.
This printable is from the Letter of the Week Curriculum from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

One day this week I watched a boy from our neighborhood and they used blocks to measure how tall they were.

Another Letter of the Week printable this was a cut and paste sheet.

To finish off the first week of school with a blast we spent the weekend in Ocean City MD with some friends :)


  1. I was going to call you to see how your first week went! Looks great! Love the cell.

  2. What a great start to the year with so many creative hands on activities.

  3. Love that apple counting idea! We are starting school officially this week and our theme is apples (along with circles, red and Joseph).

    Very cool cell model.

  4. Oh and I forgot to mention thanks for following me :)
