MFW 1st Grade- Week #13

We survived our first week with Daddy back to work!  It took a little while to get used to it just being the 4 of us again, but we are doing well! Daddy is adjusting to his routine too.

Bible:  He who scorns instruction will pay for it, but he who respects a command is rewarded.  ~Proverbs 13:13

Big Ladybug read the story of Cain and Abel and Noah.  She added them to her timeline and Bible Notebook.

We discussed the significance of a rainbow and God’s promise to us to never flood the Earth again. 

She made a rainbow out of construction paper.




She also made some boats out of aluminum foil and floated them in the kitchen sink.  She had a great time playing with them, or I should say, sinking Little People in them :)

Science:  We looked at the reflection of light and how rainbows are formed.

She watched Bill Nye the Science Guy: Light and Color DVD.





For some fun this week Big Ladybug and Little Ladybug made some Thanksgiving turkeys.  I was planning on doing more Thanksgiving crafts, but unfortunately due to sickness is our household, we did not get around to it.

Did you know??

Every person sees their own "personal" rainbow. When you look at one, you are seeing the light bounced off of certain raindrops, but when the person standing next to you looks at the same rainbow, they may see the light reflecting off other raindrops from a completely different angle. In addition, everyone sees colors differently according to light and how their eyes interpret it.
