This week I thought I'd record what I did during school hours. If you would like to read them you can click on the links below.

Pretty, much I stayed on task and kept the same order.
Math with Josh.
Preparing School with Caleb and Brent
All About Reading with Lance
Beyond School with Ethan and Lance
Reading with Ethan
All About Spelling/Rod and Staff with Ethan or All About Spelling/Shurley English with Caleb and Brent.

There were a few other sessions thrown in as needed. Math/writing with another child when needed.

Using Preparing Hearts for His Glory from Heart of Dakota:
Reading About History~read from Life in the Great Ice Age.

Storytime~I read from The True Story of Noah's Ark and Genesis.
Poetry~I read the poem, we replaced one stanza with what we saw out our window, and the children made a border on their poem~page.
Research~this is done once a week. This week we researched the flood story and read a few from other cultures. We discussed them as well.
Vocabulary~ we didn't do this week. Heart of Dakota {Preparing} has a lot more writing than what the boys are use to, so I'm easing them into it.
Geography~I used a globe to demonstrate how the earth rotates.
Timeline~We added The Great Flood to our timeline.
Bible~the children copied Psalm 1:2, we discussed Psalm 1:1-3 and they continue to memorize it as well.

A few pictures from today.
Josh, doing work. He didn't want Caleb to notice him but instead freaked his mama out. I sat down not realizing he was there and was startled.
 Caleb working hard. He is dressed but it's chilly, so he wears his robe.
 This was the boys narration today from Life in the Great Ice Age. I wrote it and they copied it.
 Our poem was Bed in Summer, so I did a sample illustration of the poem. As you can see it was a rush job. I made the sun, moon and stars, tree, grown-up peoples feet (that the stick figure with shoes), cloud and a boy in bed.  Basically I was giving them an idea of what to do.
For Caleb and Brent, I made a copy from the Guide and had them make their own border.
 My Preparing boys hard at work.
 Lance, looks good in blue.
 Lance, making cursive 'a'.

Another week done!
