We started each day, of course, with The Pledge of Allegiance. Then we sing the hymn that we're learning, which is currently "What a Friend We Have in Jesus." This is the video we've been using. I LOVE the sound!
Next, I work with my Kindergartener on any activities he has for the unit he's currently working on, which is N-n-Nest: God takes good care of me.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
In science, Andrew began learning about atoms and started his science notebook.
At the beginning of the week, we enjoyed a dinner from Colonial times of ham with cherry sauce, corn chowder, with apple crisp for dessert.
We started our new math and reading activities, and added learning Spanish to the mix. We also started Andrew's read-aloud (which Isaac has also been listening in on), "Farmer Boy," by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I loved that book when I read it to Vincent when HE was in second grade, and I'm so excited to be sharing it with my other boys as well.
Finally, on the last day of the week, we were supposed to go on a nature walk, taking clipboards of blank paper and colored pencils to draw something that catches our eye. Well, the night before and throughout the morning, we got about six inches of snow. So, rather than trudging through the snow and leaving our paper white (which Vincent joked we should do, since that's all we would be able to see anyway), we looked on Netflix and found a movie about the sun. The boys paused when they saw something they wanted to draw, and I filed those pictures in their nature notebooks.
All in all, a wonderful first week, and we're all excited about the second. Which, we're starting today, since hubby is working, and we try to follow his work schedule with school as closely as we can. :-)
