Creation to Greeks ~ week 3

It was a great week! We covered Genesis 9:20-11:9. We also discussed the Fertile Crescent and Mesopotamia and celebrated Rosh Hashanah (or the Feast of the Trumpets).

This week's memory work started the books of the Old Testament. We did Genesis - 2 Chronicles.

Science: Genesis for Kids, we completed the chapter on Day 1: Light.

~ANIMAL STUDY (with *T*)~
He's really into animals right now, so I decided to take advantage of that interest.


I'm going to use Disney's Wonderful World of Animals (since I already owned it) as our spine. I really like how the animals are broken up into categories: Mammals, Birds, Reptiles & Amphibians, Fish & Sea Creatures, Insects.





Additional books that we will use include:











I got the 3 previous books from www.PaperbackSwap.com, you can also find Just So Stories for FREE online.

This week we read the intros in the Disney and Scholastic books. He's very excited to start with Fish & Sea Creatures tomorrow.

~MATH~

*T* did lessons 3-8 in R&S Math. He's doing such a great job.

*C* completed PM 2A Workbook Exercises 2-4 (with corresponding text pages) and Textbook Practice 1A. He's on track now, so he's only doing one "day" as scheduled in MFW Lesson Plans.

*B* is still working 45 minutes a day. Three days of math this week came out to PM 2B Workbook Exercises 3-8 and corresponding text pages.

~LANGUAGE ARTS~

*T* nothing in LLATL this week. We reviewed some of the sounds he's learned so far. I'm really trying to take it slow with him.

*C* did SpellWell A lesson 4. I'm not going to have him start LLATL Yellow until after the baby is born... so mid-September? He also did a few pages in HWT Cursive.

*B* completed lesson 17 in LLATL Yellow. We'll start Writing Stands when she starts the Orange book. She also did a page (2 letters) of BJU Cursive.

OH and *B* received a letter and CD from Joni Eareckson Tada. She was super excited. :)
