North America here we come! Kyrie begins the study of North America with Goldfinch and Bluebird students.
In language, first level has completed all three punctuation key experiences and are ready to practice on their own. This lesson is a follow up that will prepare them to use these exciting end marks in their writing!
- The first snowstorm put us all in the mood for some snowy math. Here the students are estimating and checking the number of “snowballs” necessary for measuring the perimeter and area of a snowman. Gingerbread and snowman glyphs were also created to show data on each child.
Colin is measuring his perimeter using the “mathmallows.” Can we eat them?!
In history, 3rd level presented “The Drama of the Archeozoic Oceans.” This short play explains the role the first living things played in removing calcium from the oceans to prepare it for other life.
Pioneer Day in Bluebird room was a springboard for research of the original 13 colonies. Third level students chose a colony to research and some created a model to accompany their facts. Additionally, they are reading Little House in the Big Woods which reinforces their understanding of the hardships of this time period.
