starting our school day by saying the Pledge of Allegiance
We begin our days with Bible class. Our recent lessons have been on Creation, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and Enoch. Cruz is continuing to memorize John 3: 14-19. Our doctrinal drills have covered God and Salvation. We sing several songs and spend some time in prayer. It is one of my favorite parts of homeschool.

Cruz is continuing a review through the alphabet. We are doing a letter a day until we complete it. Last week we covered letters O-S. We play a few phonics games each day. He reads and we work on sight words.

Here he is painting rectangles although many look more like squares. He loves to paint and it is a good way to keep him quiet and occupied while I work with Cruz.
Cruz began working on addition math facts last week. His first lesson covered +0. It was an easy one for him to memorize.

Sweet Ben learning to write the number 4.
Ben loves to count and sort.
He also loves working puzzles.
In Health we learned about the importance of eating a good breakfast. I love cooking breakfast so that is a big meal in our home each day.
Their Health project had them cutting pictures out of magazines of healthy breakfast foods.

Our History lessons were about Amerigo Vespucci and the Lost Colony of Roanoke.
They enjoyed learning about Amerigo's fascination with stars.
Their activity was a constellation project. They used a white crayon to draw pictures on black paper. They then took push pins to punch holes on the lines. Later that night when it was dark we used flashlights and shined their pictures on the ceiling to show their "stars". They really enjoyed doing this. I think it was one of their favorite projects so far.

It was another busy week but as you can see it was a fun one. I just love this time with my boys!
