In Bible we covered the stories of The Feeding of the 5,000 and Jesus Walks on Water. Cruz had to recite his memory work- Matthew 18:1-6.

Cruz saying his memory verses for the month of February
In language Cruz spent the week focusing on words that have the "th" and "tch" sounds. All of his daily reading stories focused on those two sounds. He took his book end assessment test on Friday and did well. Both of my boys have speech issues. Cruz especially struggles with "th". I was glad to have the week to really work with him on that. We watched several YouTube videos to help show him mouth position and practice. YouTube is probably my #1 favorite resource for homeschool. Almost any question I have had or help that I have needed I have found it there. I am so thankful for technology!

Ben learned letter "Q". His memory verse for the week was 1 Corinthians 16:13: "Quit you like men, be strong". His nursery rhyme for the week was Humpty Dumpty.

We learned about two States- Nevada and Nebraska.
We love our Science lessons. They are always the funnest part of the week. This week we studied flowers. I had two different flowers for us to look at and dissect. We used them to identify all the parts of the flower as well. The boys really loved this and spent a long time with their magnifying glasses looking over each little part of the flowers. Cruz said "Mama, I had no idea how fun this was going to be!"

Cruz liked getting to use a knife to cut open the parts.
I love watching them learn new things.
We read the book Planting A Rainbow and then did a painting project. We looked at online photos of flower fields and then the boys had to paint their own. They love painting! I only gave them red, blue, and yellow paint. They had to mix the colors to get other colors they wanted. They enjoyed that and it was good review for them on which colors to put together.

Here are Cruz's journal entries for the week-
In Health we learned about storm safety and tips to keep us safe. We read the story in Matthew 14: 22-33 about Jesus calming the storm. We also memorized Psalm 56:3 "What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee."
In Art they drew a baby squirrel-
We also did several spring themed art projects. One of those was making hand print butterflies.

We used paper plates, paint, and construction paper to make insects. Ben chose a ladybug and Cruz chose a bee.
