Copywork and Bible: We continued with God's little boy and also are writing out Our Father. This goes along nicely with our Bible NIkV that we are listening to on Faith Comes by Hearing where we are in Matthew.
Math: Back to Righstart. I'm going to try and plod through the rest of book B because i think it does demonstrate things in a tangible way for Andrew. We also found a new math practice website. Variety is key for Andrew. He has money down pretty well and time is good as well although I plan to review time on 'Wacky Wednesday' next week.
Speech: We did nada, zip zilch this week. Having a cold and speech practice is just not fair to a child. We start speech back at Beaumont on Tuesday.
Science: We did some unschooling here. We read a book about frogs and also All Around You by Jeanne Bendick. We also read more about the scientific method.
Poetry, Art and Music: We read more about various types of poems specifically the limerick and villanelle. Andrew enjoyed reading though the entire book skimming for poems he enjoyed. You can see more of what we did I art here. We also did our hymn on Wacky Wednesday.
Reading and History: Plodding through Henry Huggins. It is fun and interesting and good to listen on CD but I have to say that Andrew enjoyed much more Leif the Lucky by D'aulaire. The illustrations are very rich and the text is wonderful. We have finished that book and I thought it would take much longer. We drew an illustration of his favorite together using the techniques we learned with our art instruction. He did a wonderful job narrating the book and was quite concerned that Erik the Red was not a Christian but quite excited when Leif decided to 'take the Christian faith.' I love narration.... we get to banter things back and forth and just have fun with a book. I plan to start video book reports soon.
