We finally finished week 5!!
On Monday, August 3 we started our science experiment. We're trying to grow mold on a regular piece of bread and compare it to toast and a piece with neosporin on it. After almost 2 weeks we have NO MOLD. It's a little disappointing. I've never considered myself to have a green thumb, but this is ridiculous!!
We finished memorizing the books of the Old Testament this week. They did a great job, I'm so proud!
Pyramids made out of sugar cubes and icing. Of course when they were done I had to let them taste a sugar cube.
This is our timeline so far...
HYMN STUDY: Holy, Holy, Holy focus on verse 1. We also read the story of the author, Reginald Herber from Hymns for a Kid's Heart.
Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, Holy, Holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!
VOCABULARY: They finally started English From the Roots Up. I'm having them do 2 words a week until they're caught up. This week they did pages for biblos and sauros.
ART HISTORY/STUDY: God and the History of Art is a really really good program, I just think it was a bit over my kids' heads. The new plan is to read from Hillyer's A Child's History of Art, this week we read part 1, chapter 1: The Oldest Pictures in the World. Next week we will start instruction from Art Adventures at Home.
READ ALOUD: Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, pages 3-19.
LATIN: Latin's Not So Tough 1, pages 87-96. They should finish next week.
*T* did lessons 12 and 13 from R&S 1. He's learning to add now. :)
*C* worked on renaming. It was a little hard for him to grasp at first, but now that he's got it the boy has taken off! We worked quite a bit in the Text before we moved on to exercise 20 in Primary Math 2A... nice and easy...
*B* is still finishing up PM 2B. She's working through the Standards textbook and doing the corresponding pages in the US Ed. workbook. Text: pages 33-38 which include practices B, C, D. Workbook: exercises 22-23 and pages 55-56 of the Standards workbook. Those pages involved Division with Remainders, not included in the US Ed.
*T* played on Starfall.com, but that's about it.
*C* completed LLATL Yellow, Lesson 1.
*B* did 1/2 of LLATL Orange, Lesson 1. She also read The Boxcar Children #1 in it's entirety! Next week I'll have her do the Book Study and finish lesson 1.
She also did Lesson 1 in Writing Strands 3. Each day she asked to do it first. :)
