Here is our week in pictures.
L had his first math test. He relocated to the kitchen to ensure full concentration. As a former math teacher I'm coming to terms with the fact this is not his favorite subject. I'm hopeful he'll catch onto my enthusiasm! : )
In history we finished up our study of Christopher Columbus making the three boats seen here. We're glad to have a lego man play the role of Chris.
Here L is waving a library book to produce wind to send the boats from Europe to North America. The boys LOVED this. Of course they were quick to jump in the water with the boats. I didn't capture that on camera because I was too busy grabbing the library book to protect it from water.
The upside down trick... The cup is full of water but the air pushes up on the cardboard keeping it in place and holding the water inside.
We started our lessons on Jamestown, Captain John Smith,
Pocohantas and the Indians.
In Kindergarten, we started our unit on the letter Ss is for sun.
The theme is "Jesus is the light of the world."
Letter S with rocks
Making a sun and creating a pattern with the rays.
Letter S cuisenaire rods activity - You can see he's tired of all my picture taking! : )
E and A worked together to make playdough into the shape of an uppercase
and lowercase s. Loved to see the collaboration!
And you see below that playdough has many uses.
And finally some sunshine for recess!
Which in this case is a bike ride around the neighborhood.
