For math DJ did some review of Roman Numerals. He wrote out the Arabic Numbers 11 and 12. Made a Roman Numeral clock to add to his journal.
He also has been doing a lot of multiplication work, mostly doing work that he created himself.
Ken learned about the Kevin Scale which reinforced what an absolute value is.
She practiced reading decimal numbers to the thousands and matched fractions to the correct decimals.
Ken really enjoyed working with the Geometric Stick Command Cards.
In Latin they learned the names of family members they really enjoyed the song.
Thanks to Classroom Freebies Too I was able to fun a variety of Halloween related works that the kids enjoy doing on a whim. Classroom Freebies is a collaboration of teacher bloggers that offer some of their products for FREE., this was my Favorite Resource. Classroom Freebies offers printables for all grades and lots of fun seasonal works.
DJ used a fill in the blank to write a story about a spooky night, you can find the printable at Classroom Freebies Too.
Since we were only having three days of school I didn't schedule in any lessons from of Real Odyssey Chemistry unit. Instead they did an activity to familiarize themselves with the Periodic Table, using a book from one of the science kits.
I noticed not much work with the Clock of Eras. They did this activity together and really enjoyed comparing how long each Era lasted. Next week if everything goes as plan we will be doing the Second Great Lesson: Coming of Humans. I am so excited!! And I think they will be too.
Montessori For Everyone.
On Wednesday the kids enjoyed a day at the Pumpkin Patch. They enjoyed every bit of it, Ken especially liked making necklaces and DJ found the " best pumpkin the world".
Halloween 2012 Jason the Red Power Ranger and Alice.
DJ's big plan for his pumpkin was to create a pumpkin patch in the backyard.
