Weekly Wrap-Up: Kings and Queens Week I

I can’t believe it is time for Weekly Wrap-Up already!  The weather has been wonderful and I’m having a hard time staying focused, and keeping up with the lesson plans!  Of course it doesn’t help that Emily and Aiden are learning about two different topics – I know better than that!  We only have two more weeks, then we are taking Spring break.

Emily has been learning about Kings and Queens this week ~ our main focus has been Queens.

Monday:  We started reading about Queen Esther in the Bible.  After reading we moved our lessons outside.  I love the idea of doing this however, we didn’t get much accomplished. 

Tuesday:  We finished up readying about Queen Esther and started reading about Marie-Antoinette, queen of France.  Emily rushed through her other lessons because she knew we were going to be making Queen Cakes

Wednesday:  Emily finished up her math lesson for the week.  If she continues at her current pace in math we should be finished by mid April.  Guess that gives us plenty of time to review and get ready for yearly testing.  This is our first year of testing - insert nervous shaking!

After we finished up our school work.  We headed to the Children’s Museum for a play date.

Thursday:  We read
The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.  Then we did a fun activity I found in Thriving Family magazine published by Focus on The Family. 

Emily and Aiden turned one of our chairs into a royal throne.  IMG_1697

We took turns sitting on the throne, pretending to be king or queen, asking other family members to do things such as get a snack, sing a funny song, etc.  IMG_1699

When we were finished playing we talked about loving Jesus, and taking ourselves off the throne and letting him be in charge of our lives ~ letting him be king of our lives.

Friday – The kids had co-op, and Mommy came home to scrub some very dirty floors. 

To see what other homeschoolers have been up to this week, visit Kris at Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
