We are still finding our flow this fall due mainly to sickness, pregnancy symptoms I'm still trying to manage (that I didn't have with either of my sons mind you), losing my office to a nursery now as well as being in a new house overall from last year. So, all that being said.... we are learning and finding our groove. SO glad we are covered by grace :-D
I drafted the two paragraphs above two weeks ago and then we moved my computer and the ports stopped working to upload pictures from my camera, we I have 3 weeks to catch up on... Here we go :-)
Books for the Week:
Bible Story of Cain and Able. This is the first story this school year we've come across that hasn't been introduced to my boys before. I dug out a few more resources to bring this story to life and make it applicable since we do have two brothers . Only one children's bible had the story, but we did find age appropriate videos on YouTube, coloring pages and other books that supported the underlying themes of temper, hurting etc... We referred to making peace from the story during the week when I saw upset starting to brew between the two of them.
Letter of the week with Bible verse and Character Trait. We wove these in to the bigger bible story as well.
|Letter D manipulatives|
|D got the lacing cards out on his own. So cool when he does that~!|
We are hitting a stride and working the two curriculum in with some changes that work for us. The comprehension questions and additional ideas from ABCJLM are so helpful for both ages.
