I made them some kite shaped sandwiches for lunch one day. I used PB&J sandwiches, raisins, marshmallows, and cheese.
We had another week of learning place value in math. This week we learned the 100's place. It started out as quite a challenge for Cruz and by far his hardest lesson yet.
"Every value has its own place"
Here is Ben helping Cruz do math one day.
Look at that smile. That is a smile of confidence!
Here is my little Spiderman about to practice cutting with scissors.
And here he is making a King craft.
We learned "Old King Cole" and made these king crafts.
Our king/ letter K themed breakfast one morning.
Our letter L breakfast another day.
Our little lambs
We learned "Mary Had A Little Lamb" and "Little Bo Peep"
L is for Lamp
Each week our curriculum has us cut pictures from magazines that begin with the letter we are learning. I make Cruz find several pictures and also write the word below for extra writing practice. Here are his letter L pictures.
We loved our lesson on ladybugs. Here is our craft we made afterwards.
Here are my boys roaring like lions while making their crafts.
Cruz working on his sight words.
Our science lessons just get more and more fun each week. We are doing a month long study on air and this week focused on wind. We began by reading the story of the Three Little Pigs.
Here they are making Hot Wheels move by blowing air through a straw.
David even got in on this one. The boys loved racing their daddy.

We made sailboats one afternoon out of plastic lids, straws, and cardstock paper.
The next day in class we put them in water and blew them around. That was a lot of fun for little boys!
Our Bible stories this week were all about Jacob. Our new songs were "Come, Ye Thankful People", "Always Say Thank You", and "God Made Me". Our memory verse was Isaiah 43:5. I am really loving our Abeka Bible lessons! They are giving Cruz a very thorough study of God's Word.

So that is how we ended another great week. School is turning out to be a whole lot more fun than I ever imagined it would be. I know it won't always be fun but while it is I am going to enjoy it.
