So, here was our week:
Math: Continued with a review of addition and subtraction. Reviewed key words in word problems. Completed pp. 9-16.
- Spelling: Short vowels "i" and "u". Reagan received 100% on his final Spelling Test. Actually he received 100% on his pre-test and so didn't get a final test.
- Grammar: More review of sentence structure.
- Reading: He continued in his book, which included vocabulary and reading comprehension questions. He also continued reading his independent book on which his first book report will be based.
Religion: We went through a couple more chapters dealing with the Eucharist. I also went to the fist Sacramental prep meeting at church. I'm very pleased. I don't have to put him in the Wednesday night classes as we are homeschoolers (I think we're the only ones in the Parish) but I will need to bring him for special prep-sessions. He will be making his first Reconciliation in November and then First Communion this Spring. It should be a very exciting year!
Science: We've continued in botany, and are really enjoying it! But the next experiment started week 3, so I'll post about it then.
Social Studies: We continued our tour of Canada, and learned about the Yukon and the Gold Rush. Reagan's favorite part was "Dead Horse Trail". He's such a boy! And of course I mean that in the best possible way. He's really fun to watch. He also continued working in his Map Skills book.
Poetry: He learned his second memory gem. They're each about four lines, and are good little proverbs.
I literally love watching him learn. It feels so good to see that light go on, and see when he's proud of himself.
