Homeschool Wrap Up Week 21

The colds are still plaguing the house.  Monday morning Christian woke up running a fever.  Tuesday I started having a sore throat, stuffy nose, and a cough.  No fever thankfully but I had very little energy.  The girls and Nick are still coughing too.  Alex and Anthony have not had any symptoms yet. We did school this week, but not as much as we had planned on.  Tuesday the only afternoon school work I did with 4th and under was Math, although I did tell the children to find something interesting to read for the rest of our school time (except for Christian who was excused.)

Week 21 in our Homeschool

P.E.: One day of yoga.  It's hard to do P.E. with a sinus headache!!

Bible: We started our new Grapevine Study of The Resurrection.  We did the introduction to lesson one, which is a timeline of what we will be studying.

Anthony made a LEGO cross.

Read Aloud: We finished C.S. Lewis Master Storyteller.  We read two chapters of Corrie Ten Boom Keeper of the Angel's Den.

History: In The Mystery of History Volume IV we completed lessons 55-57 on The Rise of Adolf Hitler, The Holocaust From Afar, and The Holocaust Up Close.  These are hard topics to read about and discuss!!  I think the author did a really good job taking the two different perspectives to talk about the holocaust.  In the first lesson she takes a broad view and gives an overall explanation.  In the second lesson, she focuses on 4 different people: Anne Frank. Corrie Ten Boom, Gerda Weissmann Klein, and Dietrich Bonhoeffer, giving faces to some of those that were deeply affected. We made our memory cards and added the figures to the timeline.  We watched a short video of Hitler giving one of his speeches.  There was no map assignment for this week.

Science: Ironically our lesson this week in Exploring Creation With Anatomy and Physiology was the immune system!

My Father's World Adventures: One of the books we use in Adventures is Pioneers and Patriots.  This week our reading assignments were about a family who went west by water and settled in Ohio. Our state this week was Ohio.  We finished up reading Farmer Boy and we watched a documentary I have about Almanzo called Life Before Laura.  In science our lesson was about the different kinds of animals.

Math: The children completed lesson 20 in their levels.

Grammar/Writing/Literature: No grammar and no writing this week.  Alex finished lesson One of LLATL.

Reading/Spelling: Lily finished All About Reading Level One!

 Anthony and Christian finished lessons 26 and 27.  In AAS Level 2 they finished steps 11 and 12.

Horizon's Preschool: Emmie has finished through lesson 110.

Other Activities This Week:

Monday: We had a 4 H meeting on the heart.

And the girls had gymnastics.

Saturday: We went to Texarkana to get some things from Lowes we needed for the house.  Mostly stuff for the upstairs bathroom and the roof.  We were in the store for almost 3 hours!!! The chidlren were really good though and we got them some ice cream before we headed back home.

Lily lost another tooth this week!

I hope you had a great week in your homeschool!
