School Week 26, 27, 28

Art Class

Picasso Sculptures




Bella talking about her sculpture




Some of the children's work not including the Angel!



Geography

This is an animals of the world work.  Most works around here are put together while we work on them.  I do not have any time to prep so I got the map, a book with animals of the world, our tub of little animals and some Geography Kid Magazines and we got to work!



We stoped when the kids got tired.


Here the kids made a mountain out of sand, rocks and mud.  They then slowly poured water on top and discussed their observations on where the water ran, the landforms formed and erosion.

Religion
Stations of the Cross Work discussed here.



History

Presidents Day.  I loved these presidents cards from the $1 section of Target.  The kids were very interested in hearing about all of the presidents.  Surprised me!
Baby trying to eat the cards!

Language
Sweet Boy spelling.



Geometry
I found a page in a workbook that used the same shapes as in this work.  they were even the same color.  It was great.  Bella really got into this.


She is basically finding different ways to make hexagons.


Sweet Baby working!  This is the Object Permanence Box with a tray.  This material develops hand-eye coordination and indirectly allows the child to experience object permanence.

I love the object permanence box. I see that it is a nice size. For some reason I had always pictured it as being smaller, but it's a great size. I'm interested in buying some infant/toddler Montessori items that Montessori Education Supplies carries. It was great seeing you post Andres with his work.
