ivey league academy: week in review!

This week's chalkboard was inspired by Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator!

Reading:  We returned to Storytime Treasures and finished Little Bear as well as the activities related to it.

Spelling:  We did Week 26 of our spelling curriculum.  Caleb struggled with this week's words; most of them were of the "a-e" variety, something we'll really concentrate on in second grade.  We did extra practice and in the end, we skipped the test for this week since I knew it would only discourage him.

Handwriting:  We continued in his jokes and riddles workbook.

Vocabulary:  Our words for this week were "dwelling," "bustle," "react," and "merry."

Math:  Caleb started out the week with a test and did great!  The rest of the week's math lessons went smoothly as well.

Bible:  We continued to Leading Little Ones to God.

Read-Aloud:  We finished Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator.  Caleb really seems to enjoy Roald Dahl's writing so we're going to continue with another one of his, Matilda. 

Science:  This week we learned about coral reefs.  We watched "The Magic School Bus" episode about coral reefs and read a few books from the library.  Caleb also constructed his own coral reef using half of an egg carton, paint, pipe cleaners, pom-poms, and sea life creature stickers.  True, whales usually don't live around coral reefs (they're found in more shallow waters), but I allowed Caleb to use those stickers anyway!

U.S. Geography:  This week we learned about Nebraska.
