Second Week of School Report

My last post explains why we didn't accomplish much this week. This is what we did this week:
Math: Worked on lesson one of Math U See-Lamb 1 gets it, Lamb 2 almost has it, we'll continue lesson 1 a few more days before going on to lesson two. I made a poster with decimal street and the Lambs have loved to "play" math.
Lamb 1 also worked on a math workbook writing numbers 8-12.
Reading: Continued reading aloud The Story About Ping, read a few My Book House Stories including some Aesop fables, read a few poems daily including some from A.A. Milne and some from Robert Louis Stevenson, continued reciting Happy Thought by Robert Louis Stevenson daily.
Handwriting: Lamb 1 wrote the numbers and number words for 8-12 in his math workbook.
Phonics: Learned all the vowels and the short vowel sounds from the Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading-Lessons 1-5 and reviewed. We did some of this several months ago so it is review for Lamb 1 and Lamb 2 is learning it, but has heard it before.
Religion: Finished The Creation Story and drew pictures of it, worked on memorizing the First Commandment, Worked on learning the hymn Jesus Lead Thou On
Latin: Continued working on Lesson 1 of Prima Latina
Science: Read from the Berenstain Bears Big Book of Science and Nature, also did a lot with animal habitats reading and putting stickers in a workbook from the $1 section-the Lambs then played with their plastic animals and put them in habitats.

I read a blog this week that gave an almost daily report (with photos of the daily work) of what her kindergartner is doing in their homeschool. I was very impressed but with 3 Lambs, I'm not even going to attempt that. But I do think it will be good for me to report once a week, even if it is just for me to see that even on crazy weeks like we have had, we do accomplish something, and maybe even more than they would learn at school.
