Our Week in Review - Looking Forward to Christmas!!!

This week was a relaxed school week getting ready for our Christmas break. Here's what Mj did.

Bible: We talked about the wise men coming to see Jesus, the history of the candy cane and Christmas tree.
English: Mj learned about the dictionary.

Math: More work on hundreds, tens and ones. We also did some review on measurement.
Mj measured the size of Goliath and then compared himself to it.
Reading: Mj read about the wise men's journey to Bethlehem.

Heritage Studies: Mj finished up the chapter about life in the colonies by reading about colonial celebrations and special days. Mj couldn't believe that colonist children couldn't play with toys or run and talk loudly on a Sunday. He also laughed at the idea of a man walking around with a stick with a feather on one end. If a man or boy would fall asleep in the service he get rapped in the head with the stick. If a lady or girl would fall asleep he would tickle her with the feather.

Mj made a Christmas tree to go along with our Advent calendar and Bible lesson this week.

We're looking forward to spending Christmas with family. What a joyous time of year to celebrate the birth of Jesus!!!
Wishing you and your families a Very Merry Christmas!
Luke 2:11 "For unto you is born this day ... a Savior, Who is Christ the Lord."
