MFW 1st Grade Days 107-111

SCIENCE: Water pressure
We happened to have this kit which is really really fun for the kids

Made a shepherd bag (because of David) and the kids were just elated! Good thing my machine has a presser-foot-free function. Easier on them.


Button snake

iPad: ABC Sketch Pad (quite a good practice) free

Bible Verse Copywork

We used an iPad app to teach on the harp (David plays) and listen to the sounds of them. (now for $1.99, I got it for free) We also went on youtube to see the real harps.

More Math additions and subtractions

We read the Rag Coat and did some FIAR activities on it (not completed yet) and we read the Cloak for the dreamer along with it (even though that's on shapes)

Learning about the Appalachia Mountains and the states it runs through.

Other read-alouds this week. I really like the Seven Silly Eaters. So funny!!

MFW 1st Days 102-106


Worksheets on shapes (yeah, she's happy)

Winter fun (sizes)

And we learnt to write Chinese for big, medium and small

The littlest played with stickers that came in the mail (good use of resources!)

And some other fun games in her box. I like the switch a few things in box idea. Works well!

We did more winter fun

MATH: addition and subtraction


Got a sight word bingo (we used the primer)

Scholastic has some great printables! (like them on facebook)

Ian really likes the bible reader (me too) Here he laughs at Delilah "asking and asking and asking" Samson

Bible Notebook: Ruth

Bible Notebook: Samson

MFW 1st Grade Days 102-106

SCIENCE: Mixing Water
We mixed laundry soap, shampoo, jell-O, flour, soy sauce, sugar and oil and we recorded which is lighter than water

Then we attempted to mix them up and realize only oil can't really mix with water

The very yucky everything mix (the kids wanted it)

realizing that I am a trustee of what I have and using everything for its best purpose.

We learnt how the pelican gives and gives and gives.

We watched a video on how the pelican ate fish.

WE made a pelican origami

We recycled stuff (since using things to the best purpose also means recycling)

We did some worksheets

And we used a recycled can to do some gravitational Science project.

I love this storybook on shapes! It's interactive and fun! (and still free!)


We did water cycle, talking about vanishing water and put a shallow dish out and it took 2 days for it to evaporate.

We got some nice resource here and it has computer review games


We used I Luv Drawing Animals, but didn't do it on the iPad, but just drew it on paper
