Weeks 3 and 4 Highlights {Sonlight Core A}

Pin It I didn't stop to take many pictures during weeks 3 and 4. Here are the moments I did manage to capture...


We memorized Colossians 3:20, Mathew 7:12, and learned about Joseph and his brothers. I will always remember Samuel telling me this story when he was in preschool, exclaiming (in the cutest 3 year-old boy voice ever), “Those mean brudders got blood on his beautiful, beautiful coat!!” The girls used bingo dot markers to make colorful coats for Joseph.

Madelyn said, "Oops! He put on his Christmas coat!" haha!


Weeks 3 and 4 focused on Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Samuel decided that the rich people must be extremely lazy since they had slaves to do everything for them, but he did think lying down for meals and eating with fingers was very cool.
Madelyn and Sarah made Olive leaf crowns.


We discussed different emotions, and how to deal with people making us angry or sad. Sarah wrote about being happy and sad in her journal.


The girls acted out a scene from Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Madelyn decided Marlie needed to hear a story while she was eating...


Madelyn worked on addition problems using her Math-U-See blocks.


  1. Wow your home school week looks so calm and peaceful compared to ours this week. We joined a co-op this year and I am still adjusting to it. The girls love it though so I will continue to adjust. Kudos on a great week!

    1. I'm glad I made it appear that way! :) Some days are more insane than others. We do a co-op on Fridays.

  2. My girls love using the bingo markers. I never thought to have them "color" in a picture with them though! Cool idea!
