School Days Summary - Elisha, Jonah, Isaiah, and King Hezekiah

I respectfully ask that you not pin pictures of my children to Pinterest. Thank you!

A Summary of March 11 - March 22
The school year is definitely flying by. There has been so much going on that blogging about it got put on the back burner. I'm going to try to catch up in the next few days so that I have a record of what we accomplished. (That makes the end of the year portfolios so much easier to put together!)
Here's what we did:

Things that were scheduled as usual:
Language Arts (Grammar, Spelling, Penmanship, Reading, and Writing)
To align Tenor's writing (IEW's Ancient History Based Writing Lessons) with our history, he only had 1 week of writing.
Civics: Community Helpers Chef
Health: a worksheet on 'How Does Our Body Work?'
PA History: We did worksheets on the People of PA and the size of our state.
Geography: We reviewed the continent of Europe.

My Father's World Creation to the Greeks-
We completed weeks 27-28 which looked at Elisha, Jonah, Isaiah, and King Hezekiah.

Bible: We started working on learning a long passage from Isaiah 40. We'll tackle several verses each week for the rest of the school year. We also reviewed the 10 Commandments, Psalm 1, and Psalm 23. 
We read 2 Kings 4-18 and the book of Jonah.
Science: They started  Day 7 (rest) for science.
They did the Noodle Bridge, More Stressed Noodles, Bud Watch, Waking Buds, Staying Cool, and Trust Me! experiments.
Tenor making his own noodle construction. It ended up holding over 20 books.

History: We did a notebooking worksheet about Elisha and one about Jonah. We also read about Assyria-their wars, at home, and their architecture.
We continued reading a chapter a day in the Children's Homer and added to our timelines.

Other MFW: 
Music: Again these 2 weeks, we listened to several music pieces by Handel. The younglings notebooked about 1 song each week using these sheets.
Art: They did lessons on drawing people, drawing still life objects, and the appropriateness of nudity in art. We also started discussing ancient Greek art.

Babylon and Assyria (The Kings: From Babylon to Baghdad)
Art of Assyria and Babylon
Assyrian Empire
Jonah: Bible Time Stories

Veggie Tales: The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything (Story of Jonah)

Favorite Books:
The Mysterious Visitor by Nina Jaffe
Jonah and the Great Fish by Warwick Hutton
