Tuesday: Kent and Katy practiced the piano. Kaomi practiced reading and making three letter short a vowel words into long a vowel words with a silent e. Felicity and Clark listened to The Very Hungry Caterpillar, some stories about bubbles, and a few other stories. They made a bead caterpillar to show how eating causes the caterpillar to grow. After lunch we went outside and I tried to blow bubbles for everyone to catch. The bubbles didn't work very well. It was a little windy, so we will have to try again another day. We had storytime, science, history and Bible verse memory work all together. Kent and Katy had copywork that went along with Bible and science notebooking about how to catch a fish with your bare hands. Kent also completed English. Katy also worked on her division lapbook, and completed English and cursive.
Wednesday: We started with the pledge and our Missionary story of the week. Then we worked Proverbs 8:10-11 that we started learning yesterday. Kent and Katy both impressed me by remembering the whole thing and Kaomi did well remembering most of it with minimal prompting. Then Kent practiced the piano while Katy was on Clarky duty. When Kent finished he took over for Katy so she could practice her piano lesson. Then Kent and Katy worked on their individual work. Kaomi worked on reading more. She seems to be enjoying it, which I am glad for. I read to Felicity and Clark. All together we had storytime and science. I forgot that we were supposed to read history, too. I guess we will do that tomorrow. I worked with Katy on her division lap book. It's getting harder. Today she was dividing by 5's, 6's, and 7's. I tried to work with Kent on English, but he had a bad attitude which I was in no mood to listen to, so I sent him to bed. He's learning about describing things orally. In real life he does oral descriptions very well, sometimes to the point of giving so much description that we don't have a clue what he is talking about by the time he gets to his point. Katy is one of my kitchen helpers today. She got to help make gluten free dinner rolls to go with our supper.
Thursday: Felicity and Clark watched a DVD of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Stories. Then they colored a picture of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. We also read several books. Kent and Katy both practiced the piano. We reviewed our memory verse, had storytime, and read history about the California Gold Rush. Kent and Katy worked on a notebooking page for history and Kaomi colored a picture of a covered wagon going to California. Kaomi worked on reading short words that have the long vowel e in them. Katy worked on her division lapbook, English, cursive, her reading project and corrections from Wednesday. Kent worked on math bar graphs, English, his reading project and corrections from Wednesday.
Friday: This morning Katy worked on her division lapbook. I read several stories to Felicity and Clark. Their reading caterpillar went into a cocoon. Kent did his piano practice and worked on corrections and all his lessons that he didn't need to do with me. After lunch, we did science and storytime together. Then Kent and Katy worked on science notebooking and finished their individual work for the day. I read The Adventures of Chatterer the Red Squirrel to Kaomi.
