There are two weeks to go everybody! We ended on a high note, here in coronavirus home school week 12.
9-9.30: Maps. After a workbook page about directional words (behind, in front of, above), Travis wanted to recreate the campsite on the page! We quickly had a makeshift “teepee” and a fire made of craft sticks and torn construction paper. Mostly he just played in it, but I threw in a directional word or two as we built to keep up the theme.
9.30-10: ELA. The “campsite” was the perfect place to finish ELA for the day, including a page in his Star Wars writing book, and a workbook page about letter U. He finished with Lexia in “camp”.
10-10.30: Snack/recess. Because little sister was playing with monkeys, Travis soon had an inventive game going with them, too!
10.30-11: Math. Travis did an addition page in his Star Wars workbook, and then we did a quick review of teen numbers, i.e. each teen is 10 plus X more.
11-11.30: STEM. We did a unit on the Sahara Desert today!
11.30-1.30: Lunch/free play.
1.30-2: Art. Travis’s assignment was to draw an animal in its habitat. He made a very inventive green ant, and got to share it on a Zoom with the art teacher.
We wrapped up early after that, the home school equivalent of a summer Friday.
