TGIF! We can’t believe there are only three weeks of kindergarten home school left to go. Have a great weekend everyone.
9-9.30: Science. We started off the day talking about animal habitats. After a few workbook pages featuring animals of the night, in a meadow, etc. we went upstairs to raid the stuffed animal pile.
I had Travis help sort these based on where they might live. Then he went on a flashlight safari for a few that I’d hidden around the room, a classic favorite game around here.
9.30-10: Math. Next up was an overview of the foot as a unit of measurement. We talked about how this differs from a person’s foot, creating a standardized unit. Then we used a nonstandard measurement to compare items around the house.
Travis wanted to use Lego heads, and we checked out how these “measured up” against a ruler. It turns out computer paper is 29 Lego heads long!
10-10.30: Snack/recess. We played around with opposites outside.
10.30-11: ELA. Travis did a writing page that focused on the long e sound, and did a unit on Lexia.
11-11.30: Maps. We talked about common map symbols like those for a post office or hospital. His teacher had provided a few worksheets we could look at.
11.30-1.30: Lunch/free play.
1.30-2: Weather. We headed outside to make rainbows! Okay this doubled as recess, too.
It was an early start to the weekend thereafter; little sister had a music class, and Travis got in social time with his high school buddy over Zoom.
