Week in Review -Week #23-2013-2014

We are in Sonlight American History Part II

Scripture Memory Verse:

Reviewing all previous learned memory verses.

Bible

We are learning about the prophets.

Read out Louds

We are reading, " You Wouldn't Want to be a Secret Agent During World War II! A Perilous Mission Behind Enemy Lines" by John Malam.

We are reading, "Hero Over Here A Story of World War I" by Kathleen V. Kudlinkski.

For poetry we are reading, "The Oxford Illustrated Book of American Children's Poems" by Donald Hall.

Physical and Health Education

In PE this last week Little Man is continuing to hone is basketball skills. He also had karate and is continuing working towards his orange belt.

Therapy and Appointments

Bug had Speech, Occupation, and Physical therapy this last week. Her food therapy and life skills therapy was canceled this last week.

It was extremely cold this last week and they had to cancel Horse Therapy. Bug was pretty sad about it.

History and Geography

This last week I expanded our study on the wars and did a unit of spy's. You can read about our activities here and here. The kids had a blast this week with all the activities. Talk about school getting done in record time this week so we could do our spy unit. If only it could happen every day!!!!
Spy gadgets for kids
We are also starting to learn about the Spanish Flu of 1918 and how different it was back in 1918 compared to the flu today.

We found countries on our map and stamped our passport books for all the different places the World Wars is taking us.

Language Arts and Math 

Bug is reviewing many different concepts in math at this time. She has went beyond my expectations with math. It just amazes me how well she does considering her disabilities  and how far she has came in the last year and half. I would of told you that math is a hard subject and that the concepts she just doesn't get it back then. In some areas she is right on or above her grade level. In a few areas she is grades below where she should be. Our kids with disabilities can do so much if we don't put them in a box.

Reading is a different story and I don't foresee her curling up to a book herself. She loves to be read to. She struggles so much in this area. She is still working with, "Reading Eggs" and she loves it. 

Little Man is learning how to write his first book report. I thought it would be a topic I would get some whining with. He is working hard and grasping the concepts. 

In math he is working on subtraction and money. I am doing a Kumon Money workbook with him. He really enjoys this workbook. 

Science

I put aside our Nancy Larson Science for a bit and am letting the kids do science with Science4Us. I am doing a review with them for TOS Crew. My kids love it and I have to time them or they will keep going. More about that when I do my review.

Hebrew, Art, and Misc.. Studies

Little Man is working on the Siddur Edition with Cap IT! Hebrew. This program makes reading Hebrew so easy. He love writing and then translating the Hebrew back into English. Not part of the program per say... but he does it after ever lesson. 

Bug is still working on reading Hebrew with Cap IT! Level 2. She is slow and steady. We are also working on her remembering certain verses and blessings for her upcoming Bat Mitzvah in October.

We went on a field trip to City Arts and had a full day of art. We toured the facitlities and learned about all the crafts you can learn at the center. The kids also weaved, made a sun catcher , and a Japanese lantern. It was a fun day. I will show more pictures in another post.
The kids started doing photography in 4-H this week. It was more of an introduction to what photography is and some of the terminology. I think I am going to be learning a lot myself in the project. Maybe, I'll understand my camera or at least Little Man will learn it and clarify it and teach me!
