The Writing Corner has gotten a lot of attention. On Tuesday they requested to do their skill builder lesson with Write Shop. The lesson focus was adding details to the story. They made sandwiches using paper cut outs of of construction paper.
They did a journal prompt to reinforce the lesson.
This was a cool lesson for them . They think of cheese, lettuce and tomatoes when they need to add more details to their writing.
Ken spent a lot of time working on the pronoun box. The pronoun work can be purchased at Montessori Print Shop.
For math DJ did a lot of multiplication with the Bead Chains and Large Bead Frame. Also he received his first presentation of the Checker Board.
History and Geography was completed through read aloud time in our book A Little History of the World by Gombrich and Story of the World Volume 1. Ken did more work with the Timeline of Life and DJ worked with the Europe puzzle.
More History and Geography was covered with their own twist.
Clothing from Around the World has Ken very giddy. It was inspired by this beautiful doll I posted about here. In the photo above she made a hat for one of her dolls.
DJ has been doing a study of snakes around the world.
DJ has been encouraging Ken to learn more about snakes too.
On Wednesday she overcame her fear of snakes! They were both proud of this accomplishment. DJ says " We have another snake lover in the house."
This week the study of the Human Body led to learning about Microbes.
They took a piece of bread and rubbed it gently on the carpet and then placed one half of wet and dry bread in baggies to observe what will happen to the bread over the next 14 days.

Well this wrap ups most of our week. I hardly ever include Fridays in our wrap ups because it is usually a day of fill in the gaps. For example we finished reading the book Phineas Gage yesterday, always the next day after completing a book they write a book report. Today though it is the Grand Opening of their popcorn business so they are full of energy and popping away.
