We wrapped up our artist study of Pablo Picasso this week. You can go here to see how their masterpieces turned out.
For language works this week they did a lot of Sentence Analysis work.
I had a lot of fun observing them doing their math work this week. DJ still is loving writing and building numbers with the Long Bead Frame. He had a grand time making plane figure shapes with the long bead chains. This work caught him by surprise! He said " I didn't know that making shapes with the chains could be so challenging".
Ken had fun doing Rainbow Factoring. In the photo above she found the multiples of 5, 6, 7, 8,and 9. I think her favorite work of the week was learning the divisibility rule for two using the Golden Bead Material.
Their Christmas Around The World unit is coming along nicely and challenging their geography skills at the right level. They had to search high and low to locate Holland:)Favorite Resource this week.
Interest in Chemistry is still strong . Ken and DJ had fun completing a lab in learning more about Atoms. Using different temperatures of water and food coloring to determine which temperature would Atoms move fastest or slowest in.
They learned about the parts of the Helium Atom and did a fun demonstration.
Meet the Electrons.
And now the Helium Atom. The Electrons were circling around the Protons and the Neutrons at different rates of speed knocking the lampshade down, but nevertheless a Helium Atom was created.
DJ is still into the Scientist in the Field series. Last week he finished reading The Manatee Scientist.
This week he started reading The Frog Scientist as our read aloud.
All of the kids write all of the time! I found these pictures on the camera which was taken by one of them. This means that they want me to share this work on this blog:)
Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational.
Well this wrap ups our week and the last week of our Fall Semester.
