Week in Review - HOD CtC Unit 31

Monday, April 24, 2017

This week we spent our time reading about the final days of Christ's life. Homeschool is such a unique and wonderful responsibility and privilege. Reading about the persecuted church in Asia with Aedan in his history lessons makes me even more thankful to have the opportunity to share the gospel each day with my boys. 

This week our history project was to follow the footsteps of Christ and to see where his many miracles happened along the way as well as the main events of his life. It was neat to see where they happened on the map.

Caiaphas is High Priest - 18-36 A.D.

Pontius Pilate is Governor of Judea - 26-36 A.D.

Silas's copywork this week is one of my favorite passages in the Bible - John 15.

He wrote his written narration about Peter's denial of Christ.

Our poem this week was "Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost. We have enjoyed the paintings this year, but I have to say we are ready to finish these up. We only have 2 more left after this one!

Silas finished Singapaore 5B last week, and I took him out for ice cream to celebrate. I was noticing that he needed some fractions review. I think we may have moved too quickly through them. I pulled out our MUS Epsilon video and fraction overlays to review for the rest of the year instead of moving on to Singapore 6.

This is what school often looks like around here. This boy and his cat snuggled in various places around the house is a common sight. Maybe this is why this kid is so low anxiety for math. A cuddly cat sure helps!

Silas started a new literature book. Wild Robot is about a robot that washes ashore an island and how she adapts to life in the wild. He's loving this story.

As I said in Aedan's post we have set aside their bible study lessons and decided to read Joshua together for the rest of the year. Since Silas's Bible study is the same as our history reading I decided it would be a good time to do this. I really love this curriculum and reading straight through the Bible. I'll have to share why we enjoy it sometime soon!
