We had a good week. R-girl read the first two BOB Books! She's so excited and proud! We got our projects done. Did most of our reading. I'm pleased with what we accomplished.
Bible: We worked on Gen 1:29. We're going to begin Psalm 130 for the Lenten season.
Catechism/Creed: R-girl and N-boy moved to new sections. M-girl is about ready to.
Hymn: Finished Amazing Grace! They know this one very well. I had decided on Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted next, but now I'm thinking about switching to When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. Hm.
Poetry: Everyone started new poems this week: Persevere and The Little Old Man of the Sea. I think they'll only need one more week.
Counting: We're working on Evens this month and it is going very well.
Other Memory Work: I'm really liking the Memory sentences from Hannah's HS Helps. The children know the parts of a flower, I got these lists from Living Memory and they're helpful. We have the Northern Border of the US down now, too.
N-boy: He finished the /oo/ /ow/ and /oi/ section of OPG. He's really ready for syllabification, we should be there soon.
R-girl: She read Mat and Sam! She really wants to read; we get the children their own "big" Bible when they can read and she wants one!
M-girl: She read and narrated another chapter in Little House. She also listened to Heidi and Peter Pan from Librivox. (Loved both)
N-boy: He's working on The Story of Jesus and the Geography reader.
M-girl: got 100% on her first Math test (that I treated like a test). We've been working on building polygons and looking at them.
N-boy: started working with 6.
R-girl: did several MEP lessons and worked on order, directional words, counting, more and less than. MEP Reception is fantastic so far.

We read about Sargon, king of Akkadia and his military dictatorship. We colored pictures, worked on a map showing Sumer, the Tigris and Euphrates, read the introductory story of the Arabian Nights, did the word search from the SOTW AG. And, finally, we made our Sumerian Seals.
