Learning Journal: 2/21-2/25

I should start out by saying that Daddy lost his job on Friday, February 18, so our learning was a bit... uh... interrupted throughout the week. Good news is that he started a new job today! Only one week off, only missing one paycheck. God is good!

BIBLE- We began using the International Children's Bible Field Guide by Lawrence Richards. This week we read the first chapter: What you should know about the Bible. It was interesting. It told basically how the Bible was written and answered a few common questions. One part shared how careful the scribes were when copying the Bible. After we read the chapter we completed the "Pretend to be a scribe" activity. They had to copy John 3:16 exactly how a scribe would do it. They also had to count letters and words. It took about 20 minutes!

HISTORY- The older 2 take TN History at Co-op on Mondays. Together, we read MOH2 Lesson 22 about everyday life in the Dark Ages. That was it!

SCIENCE- All of them did science at Co-op,

LATIN- Latina Christiana I, Lesson 4. We did the lesson and drills, but not the workbook yet.

MATH- 
Trey (FKA: Shark) did MUS Alpha lesson 7. He's so good at Math. =)

Caleb (FKA: Crow) completed lessons 53-55 of TT4.

Rebekah (FKA: Kitten) finished lessons 98,99 and quiz 14 of TT4. I *think* I'm going to have her start Life of Fred: Fractions within the next few weeks.

  1. Oh, you took my breathe away when you said your husband lost his job--so glad he's back at work already! Looks like you had a pretty good week anyway. New follower here.
