WEEKLY PLANS: Week 1, 7/11 - 7/15 2011

* Highlighted are those things we did not get done.


EVERY DAY, BIBLE: Genesis: Noah's Ark. Map facts (Mount Nebo, Mount Sinai, Jericho, Jerusalem, Red Sea, Mediterranean Sea, Canaan, Dead Sea, Jordan River, trace with finger the Exodus route).

EVERY DAY, READING/PHONICS/SPELLING: She read along with me, and most of Little Black Goes to the Circus!

EVERY DAY, MATH: Some Math Mammoth pages, and practiced the concept of tens and ones with unifix cubes. Played this game on the computer. It's one of the recommended on the Math Mammoth program. She keeps practicing XTRA MATH, or math vitamins, as they call them.

She wrote John 3:16 and is memorizing it.

MONDAY, SCIENCE and NATURAL HISTORY: We took our walk on Tuesday. We saw and heard a cicada and had a wonderful time around the neighborhood.

Passiflora Incarnata, Purple Passionflower

We heard EXACTLY this:
And it apparently is the Eastern Narrowmouth Toad.

TUESDAY, LITERATURE and POETRY: Aesop FAbles: The Boy and the Filberts, Hercules and the Wagoner. Filberts are a kind of hazelnuts, in case you did not know like me.

The Dragons are Singing Tonight, A poem a day from A Child's Garden of Verses.
We read The laughing dragon, a story that reminded us of The Popcorn Dragon, and the girls requested again to read the elephant story from My Own Book of Animal Stories.

WEDNESDAY, GEOGRAPHY and BIOGRAPHY:  Chapter 3, Paddle to the Sea. Knitting group, and a new book we have started, free for the kindle, Highroads of Geography. It's the story of a father that leaves and he writes a letter of his travels to the children that describe the places and people he sees. I printed a map of Europe, and they were coloring countries as I read.                                  

THURSDAY, WORLD HISTORY: - Fifty Famous Stories Retold: The Brave Three Hundred, (Greek), and We listened to chapter two of Our Island Story, at Librivox.

FRIDAY: She practiced recorder a bit, we read some books, and relaxed, did a short picture study, drew for their nature journals, and relaxed! Friday is not over, but I am with blogging! See you next week.

EVERY WEEK: Art Study (Renoir, A Girl with a Water Can) , Music, Hymns, Folk Songs, Foreign Language. Listen to The Three Ravens, you have the lyrics and song at Cantaria.

ADDITIONAL BOOK: We are reading Charlotte's Webb in Spanish, and now Wayward too.

For whoever may be interested in this, I have a file with my flex schedules. There are suggested folk songs and Italian songs, and it may give you an idea of how to do your own little guideline for the year, month and week. This is the yearly overview I shared before but that now you can have as a word file, scroll to the bottom to see links to my favorite lists where I update the folk songs, hymns, and foreign language videos.

Thanks for sharing. It gives you accountability, and it helps challenge us. Do you do 36 weeks Silvia and just space it over the whole year?
