I hope you enjoy this little weeks-end round-up of some of the boys' work this week!
Kal-El was the one seized with the urge to stack the bead cubes, but Me Too quickly stole the work out from under him.
Me Too was reviewing "sn" words this week. He said, "Quick! Give me the pen! I want to write my favorite 'sn' word!" It was "snuggle."
Me Too is working on the parts-of-an-equation nomenclature.
This activity is not in any of my albums (that I've noticed, LOL!) but I have seen it on a video.
Me Too worked through same material to practice the nomenclature for subtraction as well.
Me Too is gearing up for the addition boards. He has mastered the addition snake game. He will be recording his work during that stage and we need to get him ready. Here he is working on the numbers pages in his Handwriting Without Tears book.
Last week the boys watched a Sid the Science Kid Halloween show. Here Kal-El is making a spiderweb from yarn just like he saw on the show.
Kal-El drew his "dream science lab." It has three lab tables, three sets of goggles, and three lab coats (one each for Kal-El, Me Too, and Mommy). It also has a sink, microscope, several magnets, and a set of "science drawers" like the blue ones you can see in our classroom in the photo below.
This week Kal-El worked on the long and short chains of eight. After labeling the short chains he works by himself at memorizing until he can recite the sequence both ascending and descending. Above his eyes are closed as he tests himself.
The next day (notice the outfit change from a Wolverine costume to Batman pajamas) he laid out his labels for the long chain.
Finally, he started work labeling the long chain.
Me Too worked through the Carson-Dellosa "Learning To Sequence" 4-Scene Set.
Me Too reviewed all of the different consonant blends that begin with "s" this week. Here he is doing a sentence to picture matching exercise.
Both boys worked on different lessons from All About Spelling this week. Here Me Too is spelling words from a spelling list with the movable alphabet. I didn't photograph Kal-El's work, but I will try to next week.
