So this week we started school again. We took our 2 week spring break.
This week we started with our spelling words. We started with the it word family. Tater picked up the it family fabulously. Then we moved to telling time. We started with learning our hour hands and then we moved to counting by 5's. I took great pleasure when she remembered her skip counting considering that counting by 5 was incredibly hard for her to grasp.
Then in social studies we discovered the ways America traveled. By horses, by cars, by trains, and plains. At the end of the end of the week we were able to put the inventions in order from oldest to newest.
See the apple pictures. In science class we learned about the apple and about God. We learned that the apple has 3 main parts, the peel which protects the apple, the flesh which we eat, and the core, that when you bury one seed many apples will grow. We compared the apple to the 3 persons of God. God the Father who protects us. God the Holy Spirit who we can feed off of and become stronger and healthier in God. And God the Son, Jesus Christ. Who when He was buried causes many brand new lives. It was a beautiful study of God and His creation, and the study of the 3 persons of God.
We had a busy week. Stay tuned for next week.
