Week 2 of Kindergarten

Bible Verse: For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).

We rowed How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, a Five in a Row selection. We did several of the activities in the FIAR manual as well as other activities I found online and from our kindergarten curriculum. Since we have so many activities to do with apples and with our FIAR book, we will continue the row next week.

Saxon Math 1

 This week J reviewed numbers 0-9. She reviewed counting, writing, ordering and comparing numbers.

This week Jenni completed Lessons 8-10. Each morning in the Math Meeting Book (not pictured) Jenni reads the date, writes the full date (month, date, and year), graphs the weather (sunny, cloudy, rainy, snowy), counts using the hundred number chart, and reviews right and left.

We haven't done a whole lot of work with even and odd numbers so this was good practice with numbers 1-10.

All About Reading, Level 1
Word Flippers
 Fluency practice

 This week Jenni completed Lessons 6-8. We reviewed all the consonant letter sounds, the short vowel sound for a, i and o, sight words the, a, and of, and reviewed words learned previous lessons. Jenni read different words, phrases and sentences, and completed the activity sheets and games. Also this week Jenni read two new stories from our AAR Level 1, Volume 1 book. We continue to love the All About Reading program!

Explode the Code, Book 2

 Lesson 2: Initial consonant blends sk, sl, pl

Daily Science

 Big Idea 1, Week 2: Do monkeys really eat bananas?
Jenni learned that living things eat food to get energy and animals eat food that is easy to get.

Beginning Geography
Jenni used the compass rose to answer the questions
 Jenni learning about map symbols

  Drawing map symbols - a book for a library, water for a lake, a swing for a park, a sideways bicycle for a bike path.
 Jenni learned what map symbols and a map key are and the purpose for each.
