I am happy to report that we made it through Week 1 of MFW Adventures with smiles on our face.
Here is what we did:
Bible – Arianna received her first Bible called the Discoverer’s Bible NIV version. She was very excited because she could call it her own and it was from her parents. I was very excited too because she realized the importance of reading God’s Word. It is written at a third grade reading level. It’s not a story Bible like the others we have around the house. It is God’s Word that she can read each morning. She has been enjoying Psalms 118 and Matthew 1.
MFW Adventures Bible time this year will take us through the names of Christ. We looked up the meaning of the girls names and Jesus too. I wrote each of the girls a personal letter on how their dad and I came up with their names. They enjoyed learning which parent came up with their first and middle names. I had fun reminiscing.
History – We discussed the meaning of each word in the Pledge of Allegiance. I didn’t even know the meanings until now! That was fun!
Here’s a great link for a Pledge of Allegiance printable.
Our history lessons walked us through an overview of the 50 states and 7 continents. We discussed a “rose compass” and general map reading. The girls drove a car on the map, with their finger, and quizzed each other on which direction they were driving.
We read about Leif Ericsson and the Vikings. Leif was added to our History Notebook and Timeline.
If you have a better idea of how I can build a time line, please send me a link to your blog. I just used hooks, paper clips, poster putty, and string. It’s so not creative!
These are my “book basket” favorites this week:
Science: We are doing Apologia’s Zoology 1: Flying Creatures this week. Our experiment was to create a cricket environment and determine which it liked best. I will have that information for you soon!
