Week 5 School Report

We're still doing shortened school days/not all subjects while Ram is recovering. Here's what we accomplished last week.
Religion: Memorized Psalm 145:13 and the first two verses of For All the Saints. Read the Bible story of Birth of John foretold.
Handwriting: Lamb 1 practiced writing his uppercase letters. Lamb 2 practiced writing his numbers. He is improving on writing his numbers. He can now write 1,2,4,5,6, 7. We're still working on 0, 3, 8, 9.
Reading: We read lots of Mother Goose especially for Lamb 3. We read some of our other favorite books too.
Science: We worked on our jungle sticker book some more-reading about the jungle animals and putting stickers in the correct places.
Music: We listened to Beethoven. I attended a workshop on music and movement. We sang some of the new songs/chants/fingerplays that I learned at the workshop. I tried listening to a CD/book that was recommended by an author called Boyton. Lamb 1 couldn't stand the rock music. Lamb 2 and 3 enjoyed dancing to the music. I'm not sure what we'll do with this since Lamb 1 can't stand it and Lamb 2 and 3 enjoy it.
Math: Both Lambs worked on their dot to dot books. Some days they did their dot to dot books backwards (100-1 instead of 1-100). Lamb 2 worked on his Kumon numbers book. Lamb 1 finished lesson 29 in MUS and began lesson 30. Lamb 1 also worked on telling time/counting by 5s in his MUS book. When Lamb 1 finishes lesson 30 he will complete Alpha MUS. We should begin our new math book next week.
Other: Lamb 1 swept the whole garage. Lamb 2 and 3 had checkups at WIC and did well. We've had lots of clean up the toys. They had a babysitter one night. They've played lots of Lincoln Logs and built train track and played trains. We've had mild fall weather and they've played outside a lot. They helped make and decorate my birthday cake. We've written/colored some thank you notes and cards for family birthdays. My parents came on Friday night and will be here until next Monday.
