Weekly Report: 7/24/10-7/30/10
We did one day and a little of school this week ... but we had 2 big field trips! On Tuesday, we enjoyed a day learning at COSI with my parents and niece and nephew. Today, we went to the Touch a Truck event in my parents' town. Pictures to come.
Bible: We started working on Genesis 1:17.
Catechism/Creed: M-girl and N-boy started on new sections of questions. R-girl is still working on the What is a Sacred Covenant? section.
Hymn: Finished up on Eternal Father, Strong to Save. Next up: oooh, another favorite: Be Thou My Vision!
Manner: I'm thinking we're going to work on Pleases and Thank Yous in the next month. Anyone have a good poem/saying about it?
Poetry: M-girl and N-boy are done with Jonathan Bing (although they get confused about the soldier and the archbishop ...) R-girl has yet to say After the Party all the way through.
Counting: Counting by odds is getting there. Good thing we review a lot.
Other Memory Work: They have (and have had) the Pledge down for a while now. August, as the precursor to football season, we learn the Buckeye Battle Cry! (OH-!)
M-girl: She worked through a couple of lessons this week. That elusive /schwa/. Catching up on ETC.
N-boy: A little break has been good; he tried reading some board books this week. We caught up on last week's ETC. Now we're behind again :p
R-girl: Did last week's ETC, are you noting a theme?
M-girl: Another MEP lesson; she wanted to do 2 ... I probably should have let her!
N-boy: More MEP. He's doing so well with this!
R-girl: We didn't do much math this week. Hm.
M-girl: We worked on abbreviating the Winter months to 3 letters. She can spout off the definitions for noun, pronoun, and verb.
Science: We spent a long time in the Gadgets section at COSI.
Bible: We've done the Jesus Storybook Bible in the evenings. The children are enthralled.
Read Aloud: We're reading The Borrowers which has been a nice break after the Five Little Peppers.
