Equator, Prime Meridian and Hemispheres: The students learned what hemispheres are and how to identify where each continent is located Northern/Southern/Eastern or Western hemisphere. The students also learned where the equator and prime meridian are located on a globe.
The students focused on the correct stokes to successfully make a lowercase j and lowercase p. For the lowercase j they were taught to swing up to the midline, drop down halfway below the baseline, swoop, and pick up the pencil then dot. For the lowercase p they were taught to swing up to the midline, drop down halfway below the baseline, slide up to the midline, circle around to the baseline, touch and glide.
