Lots of pictures this time. We started having different themes for each day of the week. Monday's are Muffin Tin Monday. We will eat lunch out of a muffin tin and the lunch will follow a theme. This week the theme was the letter S since that is Simeon's letter of the week. Caleb and Simeon really enjoyed Muffin Tin Monday so we will continue. If you would like to learn more about Muffin Tin Mondays then check out Muffin Tin Mom. Tuesdays are Sketch Tuesday. We go to the sight of Harmony Art Mom and she offers a weekly theme. The theme this week was stew. So they could draw anything in stew, related to stew, or stew itself. Caleb decided to draw deer stew and Simeon decided to draw lava stew. Wednesdays we have AWANA in the evening so we have AWANA Wednesday. Thursday is Lapbook Thursday. We make lapbooks that are either work we have done this week or a review of something we have done a couple of weeks ago. We did a lapbook of the letter S and added the number one since those are the themes Simeon worked on this week. So this is a culmination of work we did while learning about the letter S. Caleb did a review of his first chapter in his science text-- Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day. Then Friday is Adventure Friday. We will do a lot of outdoor things when possible. Sometimes we will do science experiments, other times try new recipes, other times field trips, you never know what we might come up with for Adventure Friday. This particular Friday we did a science experiment where we made foam out of vinegar, baking soda, dish soap, and food coloring.
Outside of our new themed activities we learned about the letter S, the number 1, learned that a, e, i, o, and u can all have the short u sound as well as sometimes wor is really pronounced wir, then we worked through word problems in Math, in science we talked about the life cycle of various insects. We talked about what etiquette is, as well as why it is important, and learned how to begin counting in Spanish. It has been a full week and we learned a lot.
