Homeschool Weekly Wrap Up




Hi guys! Here's what we've been up to this week.

Language Arts:

My first grader learned all about the author Kevin Henkes and enjoyed a lot of his books. We worked on Character description, story summary, and compound words. 


Directed drawing of one of the characters in the story. 

Both boys also worked on a informational passage about grasshopper mice. We worked on finding the main idea in a passage and supporting details. 


Science:
This week we learned about the skeletal system and did some fun demonstrations. 

We did a demonstration on what would happen if we didn't have fluid around a brain using an egg. 

We also learned about all the ways our skeleton is important to our day to day lives. 

Islamic Studies:
This week we read about the story of Ibrahim and the call to Hajj and we also learned about Yusuf (AS)


Yusuf (AS) and the well craft and journaling.  

Preschool:
This week my preschooler worked on the letter R you can read all about that here.

 

 Books:

Here's some of the books we enjoyed this week. We also finished reading our first read aloud The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.


That's it for our week, I hope you guys had a fabulous week too.

  3. Lots of good Canadian books. I enjoyed the Alexander Graham Bell museum when I was little. We're waiting a few more years to take our daughter.
