MFW Exploration to 1850 WEEK 30: California Gold Rush, End of 1850

Bible
This week we finished memorizing James Chapter 4

History
We learnt about the California Gold Rush












We continued to read Bound for Oregon. This is a good read-aloud book.

Big Sis continued reading her books of the "Little House Series" and it's such a great complement to our study too.

She read "By the banks of Plum Creek", and "By the Shores of Silver Lake", and "Long Winter"

Language
We continued with Spelling power and Rod and Staff.

Big Bro made it to 1000 words for this year and since I have decided he will not do Spelling after this year, it was a celebration. He had done well in his spelling (at Level K now), and I think Spelling Power is a real good program!

We started learning to type with this free online course (Typing Club). I REALLY like it!! It has cool videos, good games, and coaching. I signed up as a homeschool class and all the kids joined in.

Science
No Science

Art
We are using Artistic Pursuits K-3 (Book 2) this year.

We skipped art this week. We probably will not do art for the next few weeks.


Books we read for leisure
