MJ - 5th Grade
Bible: I think the day the kids all loved the best in Bible was the day I laid out ingredients to make brownies. I said we would check back in the afternoon to see if the brownies had made themselves. Of course, they hadn't so we had to make the brownies. We talked about how crazy that is to think that brownies could make themselves and how silly it is to think the world just had a big bang and was made. We talked about the truth the God has told us about creation. And we enjoyed some yummy brownies!
Making an assembly line to put in our ingredients for our brownies (we combined our history lesson with our Bible lesson- gotta love when those things happen).
Brownies and milk - a yummy Bible lesson.
Mj has been enjoying his missionary biography about Nate Saint.
Math: Mj reviewed multiplication of larger numbers and we discussed the distributive property.
History: Mj learned about the beginnings of aeronautics. He learned about the Wright brothers and I was glad that he remembered our trip to Kitty Hawk 2 years ago.
Throwing a little science in there about how an airplane can fly.
Science: We started our chapter on fossils. Mj loves it!
Doing some research on evolution vs creation.

Making a cast with the help of his brother and sister.

Beginnings: We studied the post office this week. Jadyn could not believe that mail is put on a plane and sent to people.
We sent a package to a soldier over seas.
Jadyn loves to have Hopper splash into the pond after she says all her service words.
Which letter begins the words I say? She loves this game.
The Ipad is a great help for phonics practice, too.
Working hard on her math paper with the help of Mr. Elephant.

Jadyn was proud of the picture she made with our Blokus game.
Practicing piano and singing along.
We took a break from school on Thursday to get some free Krispy Kreme donuts on Talk like a Pirate Day.
I love Jadyn's creativity. She used a couple happy meal boxes to make a castle. A great way to recycle, too! =)
I got a late start one morning this week, but was pleasantly surprised to find Mj helping Jadyn work on her calendar notebook. Sometimes they surprise me!
Tower Building is great learning fun, too!
D is for Dinosaur!
Sorting dinosaurs by size.
Jadyn and Gabe loved the D is for Dinosaur craft.
Gabe liked my choice of books in his quiet bin this week.
The letter magnets were a hit in his quiet bin.
We also talked about the number 4. He loved the frog paper with the 4 phases of a frogs life on it.
Gabe took a break from his castle this week and played with the construction set.
Gabe is not a big puzzle fan so I was pretty excited when he actually pulled out the transportation puzzle and did it.
Balls are always a great way to have fun while mommy works with the older kids.
Shape sorting in a bin - the only cool way to play!
I noticed Job pulled all the zebras out of the ark. I was so impressed!
Playing with alphabet links.
Such cuteness - melts my heart!
He thinks it's hilarious to steal the markers from the kids' cubbies.
He isn't perfect all days. Some days he just wants my undivided attention.
Stamping with black paint and toilet paper tubes.
After the black paint dried, they painted in the circles.
