In the Kitchen :: We were busy with our theme/feast dinners this week. See below. The last couple of Monday’s I have been posting our meal plan for the week on my facebook page. Feel free to join in and share yours too.
Faith :: On Tuesday we celebrated the feast day of St. Andrew Kim and Companions. We read his story in Saints for Young Readers for Every Day and then we read The Royal Bee. Last year when we got to letter K, we did K is for Korea. Here and here shows some of the other things we have done to celebrate Korea. We had Korean Maple Chicken for dinner as well as apple crisp for dessert.
Still working on those numbers! I have definitely gotten my money’s worth from the sandpaper numbers, what a great investment. I had them count the dots, put the right number underneath, and then trace the number with their finger.
FIAR :: This week we read Daniel’s Duck. As our weather is slowly changing to fall, it was a good week for us to talk about the different seasons. The kids created pictures of how a tree might look during each of the four seasons. I forgot to snap a photo!
We had a slight variation on the country dinner and we made ham and cheese sandwiches with biscuits. Everyone liked this meal, and it was an easy dinner to prepare. I think I will add this to our meal plan rotation.
Paths of Exploration :: This was our final week of our Columbus unit. To celebrate we made a Jamaican dinner from Eat Your Way Around the World. We made Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Red Beans and Rice, and Ting.
I didn’t plan a dessert, but Bob went out and brought home a banana cream pie to stick with our theme.
Linking up this week with Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers
