This week our Bible lessons were on The Resurrection of Christ and How to Grow Spiritually. We began learning a few new songs- He's Still Working on Me and Jesus Loves Even Me. I love hearing my boys sing these songs! Cruz is continuing to memorize John 3:14-19. In our doctrinal drill time we talked a lot about sin. Some of the things we discussed were: what is sin?, who sins?, does God like sin?, does God hate us when we sin?, and how can we have our sins forgiven?
In Math Cruz focused on counting and writing numbers 1-20. Ben was also counting and learning to write the number two.

In Language Cruz is still reviewing the alphabet. This week we focused on letters F-J. He began reading some BOB books. He also started back with sight words. We played several rounds of alphabet Go Fish and alphabet Bingo. He loves to play games.

love that smirk!
Ben continued with colors. This week he had purple, brown, black, pink, and grey. His curriculum (Sing Spell Read and Write Preschool) has some cute songs that go along with what he is learning. We really like the colors song and sing it each day before we begin our lesson.

In Health we began learning about good habits. After reading through our lesson I gave Cruz some magazines and had him cut out pictures of things that show good habits to make a poster with. Here he is with his poster-
Our Science lesson was on Solutions and Dilution. We did two experiments this week. Our first one was called Kool-Aid Chemistry. We made really strong glasses of Kool-Aid. We then kept adding water to dilute it and tasting it to see the difference. The boys really enjoyed this.
In History we learned about Christopher Columbus.

To go along with our history theme I made us a fun lunch one day. We made ships out of construction paper that held our sandwiches and chips.

I also made these jello cups to go along with the theme.
The boys painted paper towel rolls to make a telescope.

We began a weekly art lesson using a fun book I picked up while in the States over the summer. It is a step by step follow the instructions art guide to drawing baby animals. They enjoyed it and have already asked what animal we will be drawing next week.

My bear cub- yikes! I could definitely use some art practice myself. ha

I think Ben did pretty well for a four year old.
