Must love Fall! I ordered a harvest pack at our Bountiful Baskets co-op and this is what arrived. These aren’t only decorating my house, but they are making it feel more like Fall and the kids are having a blast playing with them!
What is a preposition?
A preposition relates a noun or a pronoun to another word.
I wrote “noun” and “pronoun” on his right arm and wrote “another word” on his left arm. As he says the above answer, he starts putting both of his hands together to show how the noun or pronoun relates to another word.
|Here, you see how I display K & A’s artwork in their play room. I decided to add a line above it for our Classical Conversations Timeline Cards (Classical Conversations brand).
They are so beautiful, but their content on the back is more elegant and at a higher comprehension level (high school). So I use the Veritas Press Timeline Cards to read and for on-the-go because they are easier for little ones to read and understand.
The Classical Conversations cards are gorgeous, though, and it would be a shame to not display them somehow. This is what I came up with and I am pretty happy with the result. I can scoot them to the left and add more and even use the line below to continue with the cards if I run out of room.
In ballet, I read this story from the library to the girls. We all loved it. Then we warmed up and did ballet routines to the music, which is absolutely awesome.
1) Plié in 1st position (bending of knees while heels are together).
2) Sauté while pointing toes to touch or nearly touch (a small vertical jump with extended legs).
3) Land in plié (with soft knees).
Arms are in 1st position (rounded arms out at bellybutton level or lower closer to the body, as if holding a giant ball between arms).
In French, we briefly went over vocabulary on: parts of the body, colors, familiar objects, food, family members and fruit. It not only exposes them to new words, but they also train their ears and tongues on new sounds and pronunciations.
Then we reviewed the colors and did the front of the worksheet you see. I kept them because we will complete it next week. We have French only once a week for 30 minutes and yet they retain so much! I am amazed! Gotta love these little sponges!
Today’s experiment was based on this link (click here). The kids had a blast. We also read about beaks from our bird book and had fun coloring our birds. We had different stations and went in order from tallest to shortest, they did great following directions and helping each other.
It might seem a little backwards, but today we focused on listening. I intend to start on composers next week, and I wanted to make sure that we established how important quiet was in order to truly hear the music as a whole and in its pieces and parts.
So, we sang some songs to start with and a few of the kids were the conductor. We had to pay attention to know if we were singing soft or loud, fast or slow. Then we moved on to Simon Says.
From there we made a thunderstorm. We started with quiet movements and worked our way to louder and louder, then back down again. Next, we listened to different sounds with our eyes closed then drew what we thought we heard (ocean, birds, thunderstorm, cars. Finally, we watched a video of planes breaking the sound barrier. The kids thought that was pretty awesome. I’m not going to lie, so did I!
