In my life this week…
In our homeschool this week...
MFW Bible readings from the book of Matthew. We have now memorized Matthew 4:4, 4:19, and 4:23 so far. We are really enjoying MFW!! This week's country focus was on Mexico. We, of course, celebrated with Mexican food but that we do that every week, lol.
Everyone is doing well with their Math lessons. Stephen and Sarah are using Saxon and Jonathan is using Teaching Textbooks.
Learning the states and capitals, the equator, continents and oceans and drawing them all.
Sarah - So far we have studied nouns, verbs, adjectives, and this week we added in adverbs and diagramming.
Stephen - pronouns - definition, case, person, number, gender
American History - we are using The First Americans by Joy Hakim and really enjoying it!
Skeletal System - oh yeah :)
Here is what our mummified apple results were from the previous lesson....
The apple on the right was places in the mummifying mixture. The left apple was the control apple.
Also this week - I relaxed!!! I have been pushing our schooling since I knew we were going on vacation in October. No one was enjoying that at all. So, slowly I am learning!!
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…
