Weekly Wrap Up # 3

This week completes week 3 of our school year. We are going good. Great attitudes and effort on the kids part which will always make things so much easier. 

Together This Week:
Road Trip USA & Animal Study
Geography A-Z Terms Notebook(this is something that I added at the last minute and we have enjoyed so far)
Bible Verse - A gentle answer deflects anger, but harsh words make tempers flare. Proverbs 15:1
Read Aloud -  Because of Winn Dixie
Science Topic - Clouds
Science Lab - Made a Cloud in a bottle(tried once way didn't work then had to try another - second worked)
Sign Language - Worked on ABC's of ASL
Art Vol 1 - Learned about Pablo Picasso this week. The periods of his art. Talked about the type of art work he done and learned where he was born and  a little about his childhood.
Bible Story - We learned about the Plague of Locust in Egypt all because of the Freedom of Gods people. We kinda expanded on this because of the Freedom we as people have and that the world is actually "plagued" in our days too. Freedom is something God has given us only to use in his will. We kinda turned it around to apply it to our daily lives.(I know normal readers understand that I can not follow a lesson plan... after all thats why I homeschool lol).

We worked on editing some of his previous stories this week. Found a tip that has been helpful. DS1 hates when I mark on his paper so I took a page protector and  corrected that way with a visa line marker! Piece of cake and no feelings hurt :)
