Peek In Our Week | Academic Enrichment; Cuyahoga Falls | Week Of 5/14/2018

Line Time:

This week we learned about ending punctuation.  We discovered the period and when using is just kind of gives a statement without much excitement or emotion.  We learned more about the explanation point and when used there is excitement and emotion!  Finally, we learned the question mark is at the end of a sentence when a question is asked.  These children are smart, right?

 

 

Next Week:

Line Time: Capitalization and rules

Our last official weekly lesson was on Capitalization.  You children now know that the word at the beginning of the sentence it is always capitalized.  When you refer to yourself with “I” the I is always capitalized.  Also, any proper nouns are capitalized.

Line Time:

Put on your space suit and get ready to explore our solar system.  We started with discussing the planets nearer the sun then worked our way to the furthest reaches of our solar system.  Mercury is our first planet and is the closest to the sun.  Venus is the second planet.  Even though it is further away from the sun than Mercury it is the hottest planet in our solar system.  The third planet is near and dear to our hearts.  It is the planet earth.  It is the only planet in our solar system that has life.  The next planet is Mars and is known as the red planet.  The next planet is the biggest planet in our solar system and has a big red storm that has been raging for centuries.  That planet is Jupiter.  Saturn is the next planet and has really cool ring around it that are pieces of rock and ice.  Uranus is next and it spins up and down instead of side to side like all the other planets.  Neptune is the last planet in our solar system.  I did not forget about Pluto.  Oh! Poor Pluto.  Pluto was once a planet but now has been demoted to a dwarf planet.   As a side note did you notice that some planets were named after Roman Gods and Goddesses?  Some of the students made the connection.

Baby animals was the theme for the week.  We started out by what we call human babies (younger children).  We came up with the term “kid”.  We then discovered a kid is a baby goat and we should call humans children.  We went over the easy animals such as cats/kittens, dogs/pups, but went on with ducks/ducklings, chickens/chicks, pigs/piglets, manatee/calf, geese/gosling, peacock/peachick, kangaroo/joey.

Line Time:

Food Chains was the subject for the week.  We learned or was reminded that animals eat other animals.  The animal that is doing the eating is called the predator and the animal getting eaten is called the prey.  Food Chains can be one, two, three, four part food chains.  For example….  You have corn getting eaten by a mouse.  The mouse gets eaten by a snake.  The snake gets eaten by a hawk.

 

Cultural Subjects:

We can now count to ten in 27 different languages (English, Sign Language, Latin, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh,  Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, Malay, Hindi, Farsi, and Turkish).

Peek In Our Classroom:

This student is working on rhyming words. Words that actually rhyme because they have the same ending sounds. An example is the “at” word family: bat, cat, fat, hat, mat, pat, rat, sat, etc. Using this approach to reading, children learn the phonic sounds of each letter and then begin reading words within word families. Children that have been exposed to rhyming can hear the similarities in words which aids them in early reading and spelling skills!

 

These two are working on the 100 board. Notice how they placing/the order the tiles on the board. Backwards!
