We began our semester with a day spent outside. We had a spelling/vocabulary lesson to introduce words from the story "Roxaboxen". We read the story outside in the tipi and later had nature journal time with the prickly pears.
Since then we have done a number of map skill activities, focusing on location. We used a grid map of the woods to locate the radish seeds we will use in our tropism experiments.
Math for group C has been multiplication the past few weeks. We have learned a few new games like Sum Rummy which we are enjoying. The last few lessons we have been exploring area and perimeter, inches and centimeters.
We began a study of Greek and Latin, which we are enjoying. There are many connections to make like autographs, phonographs, and photosynthesis. Our first two weeks back we read several articles on photosynthesis and have begun plant experiments.
We worked on building a sentence from the bare bones up, starting with an article, a noun and a verb. Then we added a phrase to tell where, when how or why. Finally we added adjectives to tell more about the noun.
We worked in the woods to write a descriptive paragraph about a location to establish setting for a short story about something that happened at Nature Lit time.
