Our Week in Review - Trying to get back into the swing of things.

So it was a rough week here. It was hard to get back into the swing of things after our trip to Miami, but we made it through the week (with much complaining and whining) and am hoping for a better week next week!

Mj learned about some parables of forgiveness. He also memorized Romans 5:6 "For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly."
Reviewing his memory verse.
English: Mj wrote a Thank you letter to his Uncle Jonny. He learned about the different parts of a letter (heading, greeting, body, closing, and signature) and he also learned how to address the envelope.

Math: Subtracting 3 digit numbers.
Using Education Cubes to review subtraction facts.
Playing the card game Ziggity from Cranium to review math and English.

Heritage Studies: Mj learned about 2 kings and 2 queens in Europe. Louis XV, Frederick the Great, Maria Theresa, and Catherine the Great.

For each king or queen he made a crown with 3 jewels of facts about that king or queen.

Science: Mj learned about the earth's movements. He learned that the earth rotates and that gives us our day/night cycle. The earth also revolves around the sun which gives us our season cycle. He also learned about leap year and why we have a leap year.
Mj rotating and revolving around the "sun".

He finally got to try out his new skateboard he got for his birthday!
