Weekly Wrap Up - Our First Test

This is our first post to the Weekly Wrap Up series.  The series is a way of sharing what we did this week with others.  For us, some weeks it will be a reflection of our progression; other weeks it will just be a reflection on any extra fun we may have had!

This week, our Bible theme was "generous," and we read the story of Isaac and Rebekah.  They were so generous to other people that God gave them to each other.  Jude enjoyed reading the picture story in our workbook; though my little literalist read one sentence as: "(Rebekah) gave (Abraham's Servant) and (the camels) (a puddle of water) from the (wishing well)."

Discipleland Kindergarten Program - "Heroes"

We finished our first math unit this week.  We have spent the last six weeks studying sorting (same, alike, and different), and working on careful listening (same shape AND same color; same color BUT different shapes).  Jude took his first test on Thursday, and had 25 out of 27 correct, for a score of 93.  I think the hardest part of taking the test was not being able to rely on me for help; I was only reading the instructions, not helping him think things through.

Jude is still working on learning letters and their sounds.  Last week we finished Book B of Explore the Code, so this week we took a break from the program and decided to do some more fun language-based "review" activities.  We did several activities from our folder games and played Alphabet Bingo.  Jude really enjoyed the Bingo Game.  It it geared for use in a larger classroom and contains 36 bingo boards, so we should be able to get lots of use out of it.  I also like that it should be able to grow with us; the instructions come with several alternative game ideas.

Some more pictures of our week:

Heading to duPont one day this week.  (I forget which day this was - we were there more days than we weren't!)  His jacket didn't have a hood, so he borrowed his brother's hat.  He decided to jump over each of the cracks in the sidewalk and the parking lot.  By the time we got to our car (I think two spots from the end of the property!) he was still hopping one foot at a time more than jumping, but he was getting some nice air on the leaps.

The whole family visiting my husband's grandmother at her her nursing home.  She turned 96 this past Wednesday.  Happy Birthday, Mom Mom Woody!!

Journaling.  Jude has decided to be a fire fighter when he grows up.

Our first Halloween art. Our witch was totally sparkly.  He added pumpkins and stars, too.

 Playing Minecraft over Wifi with his big brothers.  He thinks he's a big shot since he gets to play  a big kid video game, but really -- it's building with virtual blocks. More shape work!!

Come see what everyone else has been up to!
