October 18th - 29th
Botany - The Pumpkin
After discussing the life cycle of a pumpkin we carved it and discussed it using some discussion questions I found on-line but currently cannot find. I will keep looking and link back.
Field Trip to the Science Museum
|The Museum had just opened the Dinosaur Exhibit|
|Sweet Boy has become more confident in making his breakfast and lunch. Sandwiches, toast, pouring cereal and milk to name a few things.|
Zoology - Study of Sponges
We spent two weeks studying the sponge. Our studies always include 1. A book 2. A trip somewhere to see a life specimen if possible and/or a video (YouTube) 3. Three part cards 4. Coloring Page/Labeling 5. Sometimes an Art Project

October 11th - 15th
Time Work. I created small time cards for the kids to practice.
On one side I have the time written like so: 10:15. On the other side there is a clock face with the answer. They look at 10:15 and create the time with the red foam clock from Target $1 section and then look on the back to check their answer.
Bella is working on Whole Hour: 12:00, 1:00, 2:00 etc..
Sweet Boy is working on everything else! He had already learned whole and half hour at his previous school so I started with quarter hour and then went to all other times.
