School Week 11 and 12

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


Practical Life
Sweet Boy has become more confident in making his breakfast and lunch.  Sandwiches, toast, pouring cereal and milk to name a few things.

School Week 10

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.
