We started our school week on Sunday with a Nature Walk.
While walking an impromptu history lesson took place. They are reading a plaque about the bell that teachers used to notify their students that there was a fire.
Putting the parts of a letter together.
DJ completed lots of language works this week. DJ loved working with putting the parts of the letter together, this is an activity that comes with Write Shop D but I made it into a Montessori inspired work. He brainstormed to begin making his first published writing which is a letter. Made another cover using duct tape for his language journal that he happily glued his skill builder work in.
DJ's reading level is skyrocketing everyday!! Yes, he is definitely in a sensitive period for language. Together we are reading The Snake Charmer by Jamie James which has a reading level of 18years old and up. There are words that he still needs help with and understanding, but for the most part it is very right on with his reading skills. I videotaped him reading a page.
Well almost a page the camera battery died while I was recording.
Ken is still very much into learning her long multiplication with the Checkerboard.
She even illustrated her love for the Checkerboard in her math journal.
Latin was fun and at the right level for everyone. The two elementary students worked on greeting words, learned how to say student and teacher this week. Also they learned that the letter " w" isn't in the Latin alphabet.
Ken and Michelle did some research on The Hominid .
Our Favorite Resource this week is our new art education program Meet the Masters.
