Yesterday was my birthday! I'm so thankful to God for the 31 years he has given me, for my godly husband and children. I was excited to spend the day with my family. It was great end to the week!
Here's what we did for MFW 1st Grade ~~Week 8~~
Bible: Our Proverbs for this week is Proverbs 12:22 ("The Lord detest lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful"). We discussed that we are to always be truthful and do the right thing, and Ladybug copied the Proverbs on Day 2 of this week.
This week Ladybug began reading in her Bible Reader and drawing in her Bible Notebook.
|Ladybug's Bible Reader|
For our Bible activity, we learned that BC stands for before Christ and AD means Anno Domini (Latin for years after Jesus was born).
Grammar: This week we did not do much of the student workbook pages. Two of the days, we did the Bible Reader and Notebook. It was a nice change! Ladybug did learn long vowel i spelled igh (as in night), and long vowel i spelled y (as in why).
|Page from the Complete Book of Math|
Science: This week we discussed "The Beach" and "Waves". We would love to be on the beach right now, but that's not possible. So we brought the beach to our home! Ladybug and Buddy's grandmother collects seashells. She was happy to share her collection!
|Our Seashell Collection|
We used our Draw Write Now Book (Book 6: Animals and Habitats-On Land, Pond, River and Ocean) to look at animals who live on the beach.
|Our pet hermit crab, Grassy, got to "visit" the beach too!|
|Ladybug and Buddy added seashells to their ocean|
|Most waves are made by the wind.|
|When the wind blows harder, it pushes the ripples until they become waves.|
|We learned that this River goes through several states and meets the Atlantic Ocean|
|Ladybug loved planting flowers!|
|Buddy planted cucumbers!|
Have a Great Week!
