2014-2015 School Year

School Week of September 29, 2014

What a week. Lots of learning going on. We had most fun with science this week. So i think I’ll start there.

Bones. Yes this is what makes us stand and not be a big old jellyfish! The anatomy of a bone is very interesting. We have three layers of bones. the spongy bone, compact bone, and the periostrium. When we look at bones in a museum, for an example, the periosteum is gone. I never new that. I think the more important thing we learned about the bones is about the inside of the bone and how it is the building block to our blood as well as mastering the idea that calcium is a necessity to our bone structure. As a matter of fact next week we will be starting a experiment on that very thing.

We are committing to memory the major bones in our body. Well 24 of of the 206 bones. Everyday we are going through the bones on our skeleton (Bob) and reviewing the names of these bones. Hehehehe, even my hubby didn’t know all of them. Shhh! I forgot a few too!

As you can see by the pictures in honor of our bone learning we have out together a bone book. I think as we go along the body I will try to put muscle and veins etc to go with our books. But we also made a skeleton too. My daughter ended up dressing hers in a skirt and top and my son made a bow tie and top hat. LOL! Too cute, but at least they are learning and having some fun!

As we lucubrate our brains with history this week we are touching on the New World. The King of France was desiring the find a passage to Asia so he sent Samuel Champlain to find it. He ended up building a colony in Kebec, Canada. Then came along Henry Hudson who had a similar quest as Champlain. He had two failed attempts. One through North Pole and the other that went around Russia. He ended up once again in Canada and there after some long journey, he ended up having a bay named after him. As you ca see form our history mapping we were able to trace the routes that these two explorers made.

This week we trying to improve our knowledge of the states. This weeks state was Washington!  Some fun facts you may not know…..

  1. Microsoft Corporation is located in Redmond.
  2. Washington is the only state to be named after a United States president.
  3. Washington state has more glaciers than the other 47 contiguous states combined.
  4. Three ships of the United States Navy, including two battleships, have been named USS Washington in honor of the state.

Psalm  4 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!You have relieved me in my distress; Be gracious to me and hear my prayer. O sons of men, how long will my honor become a  reproach? How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? Selah. But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself; The Lord hears when I call to Him. Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And trust in the LordMany are saying, “Who will show us any good?” Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O LordYou have put gladness in my heart, More than when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.  Psalm  5 Give ear to my words, O Lord, Consider my groaning. Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God, For to You I pray. In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. For You are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness; No evil dwells with You. The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all who do iniquity. You destroy those who speak falsehood; The Lord abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit. But as for me, by Your abundant loving kindness I will enter Your house, At Your holy temple I will bow in reverence for You. O Lord, lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes; Make Your way straight before me. There is nothing reliable in what they say; Their inward part is destruction itself. Their throat is an open grave; They flatter with their tongue. 10 Hold them guilty, O God; By their own devices let them fall! In the multitude of their transgressions thrust them out, For they are rebellious against You. 11 But let all who take refuge in You be glad, Let them ever sing for joy; And may You shelter them, That those who love Your name may exult in You. 12 For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord, You surround him with favor as with a shield.

I know this is a shorten version of my normal posts, but it is a BUSY weekend and well, my brain is exhausted already. So I am going to stop there for this week. I’ll pick up next week on my regular posts.

Have a great week and I will catch you on the flip side! God bless!
