But despite all that, here is our week from Unit 2 of HOD PHFHG. We got one day of LHTH finished.
Finishing up LHTH Unit 1- Buddy learned about Cain and Abel. He practiced drawing capital A and lowercase a. He drew caterpillars in boxes and we counted to five. He learned how to write the number one and identify it by sight. And found the letter a in his Hide and Seek A page.
While his sister worked on painting her rainbow for her History Project he enjoyed painting as well and articulated he was working on "mixing colors" too.
Lead Me to the Rock
We did another Robert Lewis Stevenson poem for poetry- "Bed in Summer."
Here is Squirt's illustration of the poem.
Reading Through History and Storytime have been a pleasure. We are reading Life in the Great Ice Age and The True Story of Noah's Ark.
Squirt had a great time with her History Project. She learned about cool and warm colors and color mixing. And then painted a background for a rainbow which she then completed using only red, green and blue paints to create the colors she needed.
Life in the Great Ice Age.
Squirt is learning to do more thorough Charlotte Mason style oral narrations. She struggled a little the first week but kind of got the hang of it by the end of the second week. She did a great job on her written summary this week too.
Each week she learns geography skills, researches a topic and learns new vocabulary all tied in with the books we read in our Reading Through History time and Storytime. This week she researched flood stories; made a timeline piece; learned about the words- barge, ancestor and ancient; and reviewed geography information.
