Homeschool week 7

We knew that we would not be doubling this week...but, the other kids had both Monday and Friday off so we did double a couple of days...the whole time looking forward to the next week where NO doubling would be necessary!

(I'm just doing a quick recap here to catch up on the last two weeks of updates!)

~I continued reading to him from Luke 12:35-14:24
~He continued reading from his own Bible
~He learned about the Inuit tribe in the American Indian Prayer guide.
~He has started memorizing a section of scripture from Romans!

~He continued his reading in the Incans, Aztecs and Mayans book..pages 108-144 this week.  Lots of discussion.
~The Light and the Glory (ch. 4)

~We started a book called "The Witch of Blackbird Pond"...chapters 1-4 during this week.
~Tree in the Trail chapters 10-14
~He started a book called "Squanto, Friend of the Pilgrims".  He is enjoying this.  He read 5 chapters this week.

~Lesson 7.  He got one wrong on the test at the end of the week.

~He's finally through individual letters and working on words and phrases.  He likes this a bit better:)

~We started learning about Venus.  SO many interesting things to learn in astronomy!

~Another lesson in Multiplication.  He's doing well with this:)

Language Arts:
~He chose a story from the Bible and had to write an outline for it.  He chose the story of Noah's Ark.  It was a good exercise for him to think backwards and write an outline for a story that he knew well.  He also had to write an outline and then a paragraph as to why the settlers chose Jamestown to build.

I did get the new organizing system underway.  I'll post about that in the near future!
