We began the week learning letter Y. Here is Ben gluing yellow yarn on a Y.
Y is for Yarn and Yellow
We learned about yaks
Y is for yo-yo.
Things that begin with Y and Z
We love zebras!
After doing our zebra craft and watching some zebra videos I painted their faces like a zebra.
We learned about the Zebu.
Z is for zoo
In math we did addition of tens. Here are a few of his worksheets from the week.
Here is a test I made him on Friday. He did great!
In science we continued our theme on plants. This week we focused on leaves. We started the week by watching an episode of Magic Schoolbus about plants. We then went on a nature walk and collected several leaves to use on our projects.
When we returned with our leaves I had Cruz put them in order from largest to smallest.
We painted one side of the leaves and made leaf prints in our notebook.
We also made leaf prints in his workbook by rubbing over them with crayons.
Bible was a lot of fun this week. We continued talking about and reviewing the Christmas story. I used a fun book that a member of our last team brought down for the boys. It is a sticker and activity book that talks about the birth of Jesus. It is a really fun little book. I spread it out over the five days and each day we would do activities for a different part of the story. My boys loved the stickers and have already asked if we can do this again next year. That is a good sign.
a great little resource for teaching the Christmas story
Here are my boys working in their books one morning. They got to put stickers of Joseph's tools in his workshop. What little boy doesn't love tools!
A page from Ben's book and a page from Cruz's book.
Our Bible verse for the week was Isaiah 9:6- For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Here is Cruz saying it-
And here is Cruz giving two thumbs up on Friday for reaching the end of the first semester of kindergarten.
I am looking forward to the next few weeks of being on Christmas break. I am excited about having some carefree days and hopefully getting some extra rest. January will roll back around before we know it!
