MFW ECC and 1st Week 2 Highlights

ECC Week 2 Intro to the World

This week in Bible we learned how people began to speak different languages. We learned that there is ONE God for ALL people, and that is good news for EVERYONE!

This week in Geography we learned the four oceans. Looked at a bazillion different types of maps, and learned about the symbols on a map.

We have been reading How to Bake an Apple Pie and See The World
Sooooooo.... Why not do a unit study on Apples??? We have a couple of kiddos that love apples and one that could care less if he ever ate another one, ever. 
We gathered a good selection from the grocery store.

We did a lesson on probability. We took turns grabbing apples out of a bag to see what color(s) had the greatest chance of being picked.

Our results.... Green won! 
We charted our results. She now writes her name! 
Next, we had to see if an apple floats? They had no idea.... I guess I should let them bob for apples!

Look what surprise an apple has hidden when you cut them crossways:) a star!

They then got to be taste testers to see what color apple they liked the best.

Yellow Golden Delicious won unanimously!

They labeled the parts of an apple.

Last we baked our apple pie and shared with friends at the park:)

In Science we have been learning what Biomes are and what kinds of plants and animals live in each one. Here are some some of M's favorites this week...

On to 1st grade Highlights

L has been learning how the Bible was first written on scrolls and how they protected God's word from harm. If something happened to it, it would have had to be hand written again!!!

He has been focusing on doing his best handwriting. We are making a scroll with his very best. Pics to come! 

In science we are learning more about insects and things in our backyard. We all learned about how plants grow this week. Some of L library finds...
They now know more about mosquitoes than I have ever cared about knowing. Nasty creatures. 
L and K absolutely love Upstairs Mouse, Downstairs Mole. 

L started music class this week. I can't believe he is in first grade!
Another great week. Next we move on to our 2 week study of the United States.
