3 Sept 2009

For review & info on most of the books I mentioned here, please goes to http://www.squidoo.com/ahomeschoolingmomjornel & http://homeschoolingmombookreview.blogspot.com/

EE came over today!

The two girls played for awhile before we study. I usually prepared special lessons whenever friends come over to join us. Sonlight is more like 1 to 1 lesson. At least I feel it that way.

We started off with Bible verse for the week (still the same from Proverbs 14:31). I asked Den to explain its meaning to EE and she did.

Then I read the Good Samaritan story (Luke 10:25-37) to them using the Pray & Play Bible 2 (under Bible & Christian story).

After the story we sang a song together:

(Tune: If You're happy and you know it)
If you want to care for someone, give a hug. (x2)
If you want to show you care, God's love is good to share.
If you want to care for someone, give a hug.

If you want to care for someone, give a smile. (x2)
If you want to show you care, God's love is good to share.
If you want to care for someone, give a smile.



(This is EE & Den's suggestion) If you want to care for someone, share your toys. (x2)
If you want to show you care, God's love is good to share.
If you want to care for someone, share your toys.


After that we did role play with another song:

(Tune: Farmer in the dell)
A man lies on the road, (x2)
what will you do to help the man?
a man lies on the road.

We took turn to be the traveller, the robbers, the priest, the Levite and the Samaritan.

Then we prayed and talked about all the kind thing we can do for the needy.

Afterward, I read a story from Stories from Around the World (under Social Study). Today story The Musicians of Bremen is from German. It was about how 4 old animals (a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster) left their unkind masters and became good friends. Working together, they secure a future for themselves.

After stories, Den & EE worked on 3 pages of worksheet together. One page on phonics, one page on connecting the dots and one on science. I downloaded them free from www.learningpage.com.

After lunch (thank God they only finished lunch in 40min), they finished off their worksheets. Then they played for awhile (played dress up) before we use junk food to retell the Good Samaritan story.

We put 2 strawberry Lollers into a Pocky to make a man. We make 4 men. Den & EE used the Loller/Pocky men to tell the Good Samaritan story. After that off cause was the climax -- ate all the men!

MA came to pick up EE right after that. Den did not cry when it was time to say good bye! :)

After EE left, Den practiced her piano and also did her Yamaha homework. I also make her work on more math worksheet. With the help of her Homework Helper, she seemed to be able to handle the ?+2=13 question.

We went for prayer meeting at night.
