What can you do in three hours time?
Well this morning,
Aidan Decided to read about Charles Darwin over breakfast and then,
Work on his zoology coloring book -he’s coloring a Hydra’s digestive parts
Complete a page of the graphic novel he’s writing
and read his Charles Dickens assignment.
“Are you stimming with a pump hose or reading or both?”
“Works for me then”
Peter chose to:
Do his summer job of watering the sweet potatoes
and then spend the rest of the morning on starfall’s subscription curriculum going between first and second grade work. It’s a departure from our structured work, but I don’t mind.
Miss Little Bee (busy, busy bee) chose
An hour of kahn academy
Human anatomy work skeletal puzzle/identifying major bones – and tracing/labeling the brain.
And working on a story, poor bee has writers block.
And Tessa and Patrick chose:
Butterfly life cycle
Parts of a butterfly cards
and our insect/arachnids sorting specimens activity
I read them a book based on their work choices:
and then they took turns working on Reading and Math on the computer
Wrap it all up and its time for story/read aloud time (everyone save Aidan)
Pete calls it a morning and asks for lunch. (Pete has a severe language delay and talks almost entirely in either one or two word requests, or functional echolalia, but he writes to me in full sentences on his magnadoodle.
This year I’m asking him to add punctuation at the end. Once he gets that as a habit i’ll fuss over capitalization.
Lunch is done, Aidan is doing his math and we are soon outa here for the rest of the day
