Home School Week 9

Yet another week has flown by and Luke and I seem to be settling into a nice little routine of things.  He is happy...I am happy:)  It's all good!

~I read Luke17:1-19:27 to him throughout the week.
~He read each day in his Adventure Bible.
~He learned about the Lumbee Tribe in the American Inidan Prayer Guide.
~He memorized Romans 12:15 and 16
          "Blessed those who persecute you, bless and do not curse them.  Rejoice with those who rejoice and             weep with those who weep."
     (We had lots of opportunity to discuss how this applies to us on a daily basis!)

~We read several pages of The Landmark history of the American People, Vol 1 with discussion following.
~He read another chapter in The Light and the Glory.
~He was able to fill in more of his timeline and we have spent lots of time looking at maps and the globe.

~We read 4 chapters of The Tree in the Trail.
~We read chapters 10-13 in The Witch of Blackbird Pond.
~He finished up "The Thanksgiving Story" this reading a chapter or two each day.

~He continues to work through each lesson in the book and his writing improves each week!

~He worked through another spelling lesson and did well on the test at the end of the week, although did not ace it:)

~He finished up learning to skip count (and multiply) by 8's this week.  He is flying through math so far.

~We are learning about Earth for the next couple weeks.  He is learning all sorts of fascinating things and how God designed Earth so perfectly for us to be able to live here!

Language Arts:
He did several writing projects during this week and also had to narrate to me (while I took notes) The Thanksgiving Story that he finished reading that week.  He did well narrating the key parts of the story.

(Because I'm writing this a week late, I can't exactly remember...but I think that something came up during the week that made the writing of a weekly letter difficult, so he didn't write a letter this week.)
