Wow!! We have been busy today!
PHONICS: Lesson 11 - the letter G, two workbook pages - the kiddos are really enjpying AlphabetIsland!
FLL: Lesson 8 - common and proper nouns - another writing exercise - which I am glad for each time they practice their writing! I don't know how to have them practice with out making it so tedious and boring. Lesson 8 also called for the reivew of The Caterpillar and guess what!!! They both can say it on their own!! They did great -with bery little promting from me!!
MATH: Lesson 3, pages E & F - more review from Primer
SCIENCE: We read a couple of pages out of our Botany book and did 2 of the notebook activity pages- Seedless VascularPlants/ Nonvascular Plants - they both drew a leave and a picture of some moss; and Angiosperm/Gymnosperm - they both drew a peanut - because that is what we had on hand the other day when I intorduced them. and a pine cone. We also had to do a Nature Walk make-up from yesterday - we went to the back yard and imagine how exctied we were to see that the squirrels had already started munching on our acorns!!! We found several that were still intact, a few that were completly empty and a bunch that still had the seeds in them!! What a great way to wrap up a Angiosperm lesson! (We will be going out here in a bit and the place we are going has a pine tree in the parking lot -- we will be picking up a few of them as well!!)
ART: More Picasso looking!! And from the Art Book, Shapes, Collages and Faces - perfect for a Picasso study!!
And we finish up right before noon - perfect timing!!!
