Daily Report 11-29-2011

Today we read three stories from our reading materials "The Alligator and the Hunter" by the Choctaw tribe, " The Gift of the Whale" by the Inuit-Inupiaq tribe and " The Passing of the Buffalo" by the Kiowa tribe. They were all really good stories and the theme of the stories was survival. Ken and DJ did two worksheets one about animal adaptations and the other on ecosystems.

 Equivalent Fractions Concentration was worked with today.

Lots of research work was done, as well as some creative arts work.

They really enjoyed learning about all the points on the compass rose doing this activity that can be found on the blog The Learning Ark. This blog is a wonderful resource for implementing the Montessori Method especially with the elementary child.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

WE learned about the parts of the heart today, and about some of its' functions.

I think their highlight of the day was making icing and decorating Gingerbread Men cookies.


This was also my best part of the day too.
