ivey league academy: first grade wrap-up!

Better late than never...here's our last two weeks of first grade for Caleb!

Reading:  Already finished!

Spelling:  We did Weeks 35 and 36 of our spelling curriculum and finished!

Handwriting:  We continued our joke-a-day handwriting practice.

Vocabulary:  Already finished!

Math:  Caleb finished Workbook 2!

Bible:  We continued reading Leading Little Ones to God.  We might do more of it this summer as well.

Read-Aloud:  We read Prince Caspian, the next book in the Chronicles of Narnia series, and also watched the movie to compare (LOTS of differences!).  Caleb wants to continue reading the series through the summer.

Science:  We learned about decomposition and volcanoes.  We made our own compost using dirt, leaves, and kitchen scraps.

We didn't do much with volcanoes except for watching "The Magic School Bus" episode on it.  By that time it was the last week of school and Caleb wasn't all that interested!

U.S. Geography:  We managed to get to the rest of the states!  We learned about Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii.

When we had finished every last assignment, I proudly handed Caleb a certificate and congratulated him on finishing the first grade!

I think we're both excited for a break this summer!  I did get a fun summer workbook and I know we'll have lots of reading practice with library books, but it's nice to have a break from formal curriculum for a bit.
