Munchkin worked on sentence length.
|Here he changed a short sentence (Sam ran.) into a longer sentence (Sam ran fast at the race!)|
I also gave him a group of words and asked him to sort them into like categories. I thought I might need to help him through this one but he did it all by himself. I was very impressed!
|left to right: body parts, food, animals, men, etc.|
We discussed the first explorers and I Munchkin worked on this worksheet while I read.
|Munchkin loved this and asked if he could have more of these!|
|we confirmed our experiment by comparing our findings to my husband's phone|
Meanwhile, I took this picture of what Ditto worked on one day while Munchkin and I were having school. I thought it was so cool that he was making such a cute effort to write letters.
We continued to work on our double facts as well as adding one number facts and adding zero number facts. Munchkin understands all of these concepts perfectly.
On Friday, he tried to figure out how many different ways he could make the same shape with a different pattern? This was just the perfect amount of challenge.
We finally finished up our Preview Lesson of Meet the Masters. Dad worked with Munchkin on making his portfolio.
|not part of the preview- a quick lesson on color mixing|
|On the front is a palette with all of the artists we will be studying this year (including Munchkin's name) and he decided he wanted to paint this picture on the back (a knight on a horse with a knife and a castle in the distance)|
This week we learned about "living things" and cells...
To help cement the information in Munchkin's brain, we made edible cells...
And watched Magic School Bus Goes Cellular. Not the best video but the boys enjoyed it.
this video...twice. Great video!
