Take A Peek Into Our Reading Group | September 28, 2018

The last few week’s we have been reading the story called Big Wolf and Little Wolf. This story’s  genre is fantasy fiction, and this story teaches the children about friendship, wolves, and visual perspective. Our first session, the children listened to the story and then shared any questions they had. Our second session, we reread our story and then acted a few parts out. The kids loved it!!  Our third session, we explored the story’s meaning by discussing interpretive questions. Then they had fun drawing a picture about the big and Little wolf. Stayed tuned!   

 


Academic Enrichment | Cuyahoga Falls | Week Of 9/24/2018

Lesson:
Since we live in the great state of Ohio I felt it was needed to become familiar with the states that surround our home state. We started with Ohio which is the Buckeye State and the abbreviation is OH.  We then looked at the state to the east of us named Pennsylvania (not Transylvania) which is called the Keystone State and the abbreviation is PA. We traveled south and discovered West Virginia which is the Mountain State and the abbreviation is WV. Moving to the west we ran into Kentucky which is the Blue Grass State and the abbreviation is KY.  Moving more westward is Indiana or the Hoosier State (what is a Hoosier anyway?) and the abbreviation is IN.  To my chagrin I introduced the students to TSUN.  I can not bring myself to even say the name….  xichigan mi wolverine state.  

Let us end not on a low note like the last sentence in the previous paragraph and present the “official” things for the state of Ohio…

Mammal: White Tail Deer
Fossil: Trilobite
Tree: Buckeye
Bird: Cardinal
Flower: Red Carnation
Drink: Tomato Juice
Rock Song: Hang On Sloopy

*****  Notice how most of these things refer to Buckeye Football/ being red or scarlet.  Also, why does Hang On Sloopy have importance to Buckeye Football?  *****

 

Handwriting:
We are done with the pre-cursive techniques and starting to practice our capital or upper case cursive letters and our lower case cursive letters.  This week we were introduced to the letters a, b, c, d.
