Read out Louds
We are reading, "Third-Grade Detectives #1" by George E. Stanley. My kids are not enjoying this book much to my surprise.
For Poetry we are reading, “To Be a Free People the Saga of Israel by Michael Bar-Zohar. This is a book of poems, songs, newspaper articles, and quotes from Israel.
Physical and Health Education
Little Man didn’t have Karate this week as his Karate teachers wife went home to be with the Lord.
We are still doing a nutrition class from Standard Deviants Accelerate. You can read my review with this link.
Therapy and Appointments
Bug had food therapy and ate chicken and rice, salad, and another banana. I know this may sound crazy me talking about this but, having a child with special needs and extreme eating problems this is a big accomplishment that I can’t help to not share.
Bug had a follow up on occupational therapy after almost 3 months. As we suspected she has regressed quite a bit. Due to the insurance deny her services even after the Dr. and therapist said it was critical and medically necessary for her to continue all therapies. Don’t know what else to do. She will have a re-evaluation for physical therapy in December. It will be interesting to see what happens on that end also.
Bug was back in the saddle again after a two week break. She is riding extremely well and guiding the horse independently.
History and Geography
We are still in the Galilee in Northern Israel. We learned about the cities of Chorazin, Capernaum, Tabgha, Magdala, Tiberias, Nazareth, and Hafia.
We read about the history and some scriptures that talked about the city. We then located them on the map, and stamped our passport. A lot of the cities we visited so I showed the kids pictures of the ruins or modern day city.
Language Arts and Math
Both kids are working on trying to master their addition facts.
Overall the kids have had a great week in math and language arts.
We finally planted our herbs for our light hut. We finished our light hut several weeks ago!
Both kids had to do some research on their herbs that they planted. It was fun learning about each herb and what the herbs can be used for.
Then we explored several types of seeds from trees. The kids had fun seeing the different types of seeds and seeing if they could identify them without the name showing.
Hebrew, Art, and Misc... Studies
We didn't any Hebrew or art this week.
