1st Grade, Rome to Reformation Week 10: Skeleton, Early Church


We continued to memorize Rom 12:1-2 and revised the Roman verses.

Lil Sis memorized Proverbs 12:26
Godly people are careful about the friends they choose.

We began the book of Acts and started the story of the church from the ascension of Jesus.


We read Bronze Bow and we will finish it next week.

We also started reading Galen and the Gateway to Medicine

The older kids continued on Rod and Staff English.

Lil Sis worked on her phonics, bible books and bible notebook

She reads so well on the bible reader!

The 6 days of Creation page

The older two learnt more of Lesson 5 康軒一下 for Mandarin Chinese and Lil Sis learnt more bopomofo.

We learnt two more Latin words "urbs" and "digitus" this week.

We did Spelling Power.

Lil Sis started to do worksheets on subtraction.


We made the skeleton models. The kids were a bit distressed that we made these coincidentally with Halloween. They did not want to be associated with it. The children at first were skirmish about the skeletons (I think it is the sad effect of Halloween and other dark spiritual connotations) and I had to remind them that this is not "ghostly" and "scary"; they are IN us that we can't see. Our skeletons are wonderfully and beautifully made by God!

My mom asked if I taught them the differences between female and male skeletons. I thought that was interesting. A little search online helped me find this

We started the bone experiment. I was VERY skirmish about a raw bone on my counter. I was not sure what to expect after 5 days (the smell I mean)

We learnt about the hinge joint

The pivot joint

The socket joint (we did find the brass brads in the end)

We did not do any art this week.
