Our Week in Review - Book Report, 3 digit addends, & living things

Mj was able to get a lot done in school this week. Here's what he did.

Bible: Mj learned about Nehemiah and rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. He memorized Psalm 133:1 "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity." I was able to say this verse to him many times when he and his little sister were fighting.=)

Mj putting the books of the Old Testament in order.
Mj added Nehemiah to the Bible timeline.
English: Mj wrote a book report about the bug book he had just read. After the written report was finished he had to give it orally. He did a great job even through all his nervousness!

Reading: Mj read a story about chipmunk who was looking for a king for his village.

Math: Mj worked on 3 digit addition. We got the education cubes out to practice his addition facts and to review money. I wrote another post on how we used the education cubes for our money review.
Rolling his addition fact.

Mj rolls the cube to find out what coin will come up.

Heritage Studies: My learned about a printing press.
Mj made his own type set.
Science: We continued learning about living things. Mj learned that living things make new living things and living things grow.
Mj made the 4 stages of a butterfly's life cycle.
And his seed experiment proved that living things need water. Bag A had no water and the seed did not grow, but...
...bag B did have water and a root started growing!

He also had co-op this week where he learned Spanish numbers and in art they drew backgrounds.

Love the butterfly life cycle project, and the idea of how your son was putting the books of the Old Testament in order. :)

clapping - I love when seeds sprout. We did that earlier this year and you'd think we won the lotto the way we were celebrating!!

Love putting the OT books in order - we have super hero bible character flash cards my son enjoys trying to get in the right order (according to books not time).

Surely a great week!!
p.s. - did you hear about the 2:1 Conference for Christian Homeschool Bloggers - it'll be int he NE April 8th-10th
