In Bible we learned about Jesus as the Good Shepherd. We spent sometime learning about Christians as sheep and Jesus as our shepherd. We learned about King David being a shepherd and how he wrote song/psalms to God. And we spent some time reading different Psalms. We also begin a new read-aloud, Mountain Born about a young boy growing up on a sheep farm.
In music, we finished up our study of Sleeping Beauty. In science, we learned about force, energy, gravity, and magnets.
In history, we learned about Abraham Lincoln's later life and his presidency. We touched briefly on the Civil War and some major characters such as Robert E. Lee. We studied/learned a new song, The Battle Hymn of the Republic. We continued our state study with Kansas, West Virgina, Nevada, and Nebraska.
I'm afraid I didn't get any pictures from these two weeks because, like the kids, I'm ready for summer break which we begin when we finished this up. So I'll leave you with a picture of what Lil' Bug and Ladybug do sometimes while I teach the others.
