You may be thinking, hmm, you are on Week 3, but this is your first post...Yes, you are correct! I had the idea to create a blog to document our homeschool journey and to hopefully encourage others in the process.
And then IT happened...Pumpkin (nickname of our youngest son) came down with pneumonia and a double ear infection. Ladybug (nickname of our daughter) and I got sick,and my hubby, and then Buddy(nickname of our oldest son). The thought of creating a blog left my tired mind.
But, thank our Gracious Lord, we are on the mend. So, without further delay, here is what we did for MFW 1st~Week 3!
Bible: Our Proverbs for the week is Proverbs 23:12 ("Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge"). We discussed ways to listen and do our best to learn. We need to listen to our parents, our pastor (who is Daddy :) ), others who teach us God's word (like our Sunday School teacher). Most importantly, we need to listen/obey God and His written word. On Day 2 (beginning this week) of week 3, Ladybug copied our Proverb of the week on a handwriting sheet. If you are looking for some cute Proverb handwriting sheets, look here.

Math: We are using the Complete Book of Math (CBOM) and the suggestions from the Teacher's Manual. I've found the CBOM to be very, very EASY so far, but I know it will pick up. The format is very similar to other workbooks we've done in the past (lots of color, games). We have been working on patterns,sequences and classifications.
Science: We are enjoying the science books that are included with MFW. We studied flowers this week and had a blast. There are lots of fun suggestions in the Teacher's manual for activities with flowers. Unfortunately, we are in the middle of winter. Solution: Buy a CHEAP Bouquet from the grocery store! Our bouquet was a little under $5.00, and really pretty! Ladybug loves flowers and enjoyed making a small bouquet for her room.
