Homeschool Day 58 - Monday, November 24, 2008

Wrap Up Day! We finished alot of "loose ends" today so we can have a "specials fun day" tomorrow.

Journal: Draw your favorite part of the Hiawatha puppet show you seen. No surprise there, she drew turtle and bear.

All subjects: She is continuing to complete pages in the Brighter Learning workbook. They incorporate math, reading, science, and writing into pages.

Specials: I made this turkey made out of felt. As she put the feathers on, we talked about things we are thankful for, then we sang “Count Your Blessings.” We finished reading If You Sailed on the Mayflower in 1620. (social studies, reading)

Activity: (writing & Social Studies) Write one sentence about the month of November. Shayla copied this sentence: We celebrate Thanksgiving in November. *Note: I said she COPIED. She did not require dotted lines! Woo-Hoo!

Phonics: We solved this Read Between the Lions puzzle. She read the words as she put the pieces together. Yay!

Scouts at Home: Citizens: Near and Far. We started off by talking about what a citizen is. We read Children From Around the World. We used a globe to find each of the countries the children were from. (social studies & geography)

Science: We finished up the unit about trees, leaves and seeds by doing some worksheets.

Art/Reading: We read the Chicka, Chicka books. Then did this fun craft from No Time For Flashcards.
