Mommy update

29 October 2011

I think you can tell already who is good at updating the blog. Hubby is teaching only 1/5 in our homeschool. But he is writing three times more than I do on the blog.

It will be impossible for me now to update on everything we did the last few weeks because we did a lot.

HEBREW: Prof went through an entire chapter in the “Simanim baDerech” – a chapter that dealt with invitations to birthday parties, weddings etc. He got to compare different invitations and learn to write his own. What information is important in an invitation and what is supposed to be in the beginning, in the middle and in the end.
He also completed a workbook about verbs, and read a few booklets and answered questions.
Snoopy completed bli sodot number two, finished learning all the vowel dots and dashes and learned reading. She did two spelling tests too and is gaining some confidence in writing on her own without looking how to spell each and every word.

In math we go on according to the books…

In SCIENCE we finished learning about the fall and went back to “signs of life”. Snoopy is now joining us in reading and answering the questions that belong to every chapter. We are learning mainly from the book for second grade and this was to hard for her in the beginning. But now that she is reading and writing better, we don’t have a problem anymore. We are right now learning about communication, but will now take a weeks break from Science to work with other things.

In Swedish we realized we need two lessons a week instead of one. Prof is pretty close to start reading in Swedish and he just can’t wait. He is getting bored because we don’t have enough books in Hebrew. We have a lot and we also go to the library every two weeks where he can take ten books. Not enough for him! He is reading a lot! (He can finish a book with 150 pages in one day) If he would start reading in Swedish we have a few shelves with appropriate books for him to read.
The girls need more time to work with the letters, so we will be working on different levels.

We also had our first lesson in learning to tell time. I know this will come up in math later. But I think it is too late to learn to tell time only in the end of second grade.

In Torah we finished learning about Gan Eden and also about Cain and Abel. These were heavy chapters with a lot of reading and a lot of difficult words in ancient Hebrew. In Torah class it is not only about learning the bible stories – but also to actually learn to understand the biblical Hebrew.  The stories themselves and the meaning of them and the parellel to the New Testament, Hubby is teaching more about in Parashat haShavua and bible class.

We did a lot more than this but you’ll all fall asleep if I tell you everything!

Next week we are going to take a break from our regular activities and classes and do a theme week on Noah. Right now is Parashat Noach, and we just reached Noah in the Torah studies. We are a couple of weeks ahead in some of the regular subjects so the timing is perfect to do a theme week.
