HOD Creation to Christ - CtC Week 12 in Review

Sunday, November 24, 2013

We have completed 12 weeks of school! It's been so great seeing Aedan's independence grow each week. We focused on Solomon and his wisdom, and how he eventually fell to many temptations. His life is a great example on how important our continued obedience to God is. We have have seasons where we achieve great things, but that doesn't take away our responsibility to continue trusting and relying on God and not ourselves. I love talking through these Bible passages with Aedan and hearing what his perspective is and what he takes away from them. He has a lot of great things to say!

Our Robert Frost poem this week was "Going for Water."

Aedan painted a moon rising behind the silhouettes of trees. He's doing a great job at the end of the week when he has to do his poetry reading for us.

Aedan takes a lot of care and time to illustrate his history notebooking pages :)

Aedan read about Solomon and how he married way too many women, and how those women eventually caused him to disobey the Lord.

Aedan's written narration about the Judah's disobedience and the punishment they received for it.

Aedan illustrated his timeline entries: Solomon marries Pharaoh's daughter, Temple Completed, Divided Kingdom, and Pharaoh Shishak invades Judah.

We made 12 pockets to illustrate the 12 tribes of Israel. We learned how God warned Solomon that because he worshiped other Gods that he would be punished. Ahijah the prophet prophesied that the God would tear Israel into pieces and give 10 tribes to Jeroboam.

When Ahijah prophesied he tore his cloak into twelve. We took the 12 pieces of cloth and put 10 pieces into Israel, and the other 2 into Judah to show how God punished Solomon's disobedience and divided his kingdom into pieces.

This week we learned about Dinosaurs.

We read about how a dinosaur's stance affected the way it moved. We made 2 models showing how some lizards and dinosaurs had a wide stance while others had longer legs.

Aedan demonstrated how each dinosaur ran.

Aedan illustrated the experiment above on his lab sheet.

Each week Aedan copies a portion of scripture that has something to do with our science topic of the week. I think his cursive is coming along nicely :)

We are winding up our study in Apologia. Aedan says every week that he his so sad it's going to end. I hope he enjoys the rest of the science books we read this year as well. My guess is that he will :)

See you next week!


  1. I love how one of the wives is calling Solomon a weirdo. Ha! That boy has a great sense of humor. :)


Thank you so much for visiting :) I adore hearing from you!
