January 8 - 14, 2012: Back to Work!

Okay, we have six weeks for instruction before we get to the week of Ash Wednesday, February 22, 2012.  We're going to take another long break in everything except math and religion during Lent and Easter, so we've got a lot to work on until then.

What we're working on this week:

  • Religion - We don't have any workbook lessons until Lent begins, so we'll just use this time to read our daily Gospel reading, work on getting a whole rosary done, and saying prayers.
  • Math - Saxon Math K: Lessons 52, 53, and 54 - Copying patterns, identifying an AB pattern; Naming a shape piece using two attributes (color and shape), identifying a missing piece in a matrix; Copying patterns, identifying AB and ABB patterns
  • Language Arts - Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read Kindergarten Level 1: lessons 1 and 2; Go for the Code: Complete letter c
  • Art - Freehand drawing and coloring
  • Science - Making bouncy balls from household materials
  • Music - Pandora classical music station
  • Good Books - We're going to start looking through the Andrew Lang Fairy books.  Winnie the Pooh is a little slow for Henry.  I think he needs something a bit more adventurous and exciting.
