Week 11 and 12 School Report

I haven't blogged about homeschool for awhile so I thought I would try to catch up a little bit.
Bible: Memorized John 3:16, Isaiah 58:11, Romans 8:28, and Psalm 121:8. Read some books about the Biblical Christmas story.
Reading: We read aloud many books. Some of the books we read were about Christmas, books by Tomie De Paola, The Gift of the Magi, The Snowy Day, Wynken, Blynken and Nod, A House is a House for me, and many other books. We listened to a CD with Beatrix Potter nursery rhymes.
Lamb 1 read some short phonics readers and some new Dick and Jane.
Geography: We read Babar comes to America.
Science: We read the current issues of Your Big Backyard and National Geographic Little Kids. We read a science book about rainbows. We began a sticker activity book about Safari Animals.
Art: Joshua has been looking at pictures and drawing the flags of different countries in the world "just for fun". The Lambs did Play doh. Lamb 1 began an "I can cut" workbook-it is easy for him, but since he is homeschooled I'm not sure if he gets all the skills they do in kindergarten. We used stamps to make birthday cards and thank you notes.
Music: We sang lots of Christmas carols and Christmas songs. We read about the 12 Days of Christmas song. We read about and listened to the Nutcracker.
Math: Lamb 1 is continuing Saxon math. Lamb 1 finished a Pooh workbook on numbers. Lamb 1 finished his dot to dot to 100 book. Lamb 2 is doing a Sesame Street workbook on counting and numbers. Lamb 2 continues to work on his dot to dot to 50 book. Lamb 2 was very excited to finish his Kumon numbers book. He will begin Alpha MUS next week. Both Lambs worked with pattern blocks. We read a Berenstain Bears book about telling time. Lamb 1 made a ruler out of paper and went around the house measuring things "just for fun".
Other: The Lambs have shoveled. The Lambs have picked up their toys daily. The Lambs helped make molasses cookies. We caroled at some assisted living apartments where our oldest church member (105 years old) lives. The Lambs helped to undecorate the Christmas tree. We took off a few days of school for Ram and Ewe's anniversary, New Year's, and our trip to the Kantorei service.
