It’s the last Monday! Travis’s workbook theme all week is about the Arctic, so no doubt we’ll have some frosty fun as the week goes on.
9-9.30: STEAM. He started with a workbook page counting up dimes and pennies, followed by a second page coloring arctic animals, and a third imagining a town in a cold mountain setting. Travis drew houses, a clock, and bridges.
To extend the play, I pulled out all the building blocks and train pieces and it was time to engineer a city! As you can imagine, this had both kids happily playing for a while.
9.30-10: Gym. For his final P.E. as a kindergartner, we kept things fun with “at home” sports.
10-10.30: Snack/recess. There was some messy outside art on the patio!
10.30-11: ELA. Travis’s teacher sent along a favorite story, Dex…The Heart of a Hero.
After watching a read-aloud, Travis colored in superhero masks, and both kids dressed up in masks and capes.
Travis was supposed to write, “If I were a superhero…” but frustration led to a huge tantrum. He half-finished the assignment.
As a result, we switched over to a workbook page on WH words and a stint on Lexia.
11-11.30: Spanish. The kids have laughed and loved the silly songs sent by Travis’s teacher all spring, this time on a fruit conga line!
11.30-1.30: Lunch/free play
1.30-2: Class Zoom. Travis even shared that he was thankful for his sister.
2-3: Outside. We can’t get enough of the playground!
3-3.30: Music. There was a special live Zoom with the teacher today, going over favorite songs from the year, and getting Travis up and dancing.
