We were recovering from the flu so we didn't do very much school this week. The Lambs were glad that we were back to school when I felt well enough, but they said they didn't miss not having school. I think they were too sick to care on those days. Here's what we did accomplish:
Math: Finished lesson 1 in Math U See including lots of time for both Lambs to show me they really understand it and show me with the blocks. I love MUS so far! Began lesson 2. Lamb 1 worked in his math workbook a little. We actually worked on math more than anything else this week because the Lambs asked for it.
Handwriting: Lamb 1 did the math workbook writing the number 12 and the word twelve. He begged to do more but I didn't feel like helping him. Lamb 1 was the one that missed the routine of school this week, as I just did a little when I felt like it.
Phonics: Reviewed vowels, didn't start anything new
Religion: Memorized Mark 2:5 (for Sunday School), worked on memorizing the first commandment and the hymn Jesus Lead Thou On a little. Did the Sunday School lesson they missed on David and Nathan. Didn't do any other Bible stories.
Science: Read from Berenstain Bears science book a little, read about bears.
Reading: Finished The Story about Ping, Began Madeline (Ram's parents are going to Paris soon for Ram's dad to go on business), Read a few stories from My Book House and a few poems, recited Happy Thought by R.L. Stevenson daily.
We are off to a field trip while Ram goes to the pastor's conference early this week. I am praying that we are all completely healthy when we return and we can get off to a good start for school after this last crazy month. Ram had a slight possibility of another funeral and I'm so glad that he doesn't have that one. I just wanted to scream when he told me about the possibility because I was hoping to finally get going on school. A funeral ends up messing up the entire week for our family. Thankfully he doesn't have to do that funeral. When we return I want to do more Prima Latina and also music and art with the Lambs. I want to start memorizing a new poem and a new hymn. I want to get going on The Ordinary Parents Guide to Teaching Reading. I pray that we stay healthy so we can accomplish this!
