We have had a fun, busy week in our homeschool. Our focus was Letter A in language, writing numbers in math, our community in science, and the death and resurrection of Jesus in Bible. We have done a lot of memorizing, singing, writing, coloring, and exploring. Here is look at our school week-
We begin each day by saying the pledge to the American flag and singing "My Country Tis of Thee". In a few more weeks we'll begin learning "The Star Spangled Banner". I love that my boys are learning these American things.
We learned all about apples this week. We made these apple trees and memorized an apple poem.

We used a hula hoop to make our circle
they saw ants, grass, a worm, and a beetle (and thankfully that's all, ha)
I love this photo of the two of them.
This makes me laugh.
Wednesday we had class in the morning. We learned about Arctic Animals. We then took our first field trip. We visited a place in our community- the fire station.

Cruz said, "mama, these tires are BIG!"
They also got to explore the ambulance.
Cruz loved playing on the fire pole!
Here is a short video of a fireman demonstrating how to slide down.

We ended the week in Bible by learning how to grow spiritually and reciting our verse for the week. It was John 14:14 his letter "I" verse.

It has been a lot of fun and we have learned a lot. I am looking forward to the weekend so my brain can rest, ha. We'll start back on Monday with all things letter "B". It should be a "b"last! Have a great weekend everyone!
