A Peek Into Reading Group

The last story we read was called Down The Road.  It is about a girl who gets to walk to the store by herself for the first time.  Her parents give her money to buy eggs and told her not to dilly dally and come straight home.  She gets the eggs and starts walking home when she comes to an apple tree and decides to pick apples for her parents.  She ends up dropping the eggs and breaking them. Her parents find her in the apple tree and talk it over, and end up deciding to make apple pie for breakfast instead.

During the readings, the students participated in different activities such as,  discussions, vocabulary exercises,  drawing and writing activities.

The kindergartners are writing about whether they would have gone straight home or have climbed up in the tree after breaking the eggs:

Telling Time: The past week the kindergarten students continued to learn how to tell time to the hour, half past, quarter past and quarter till.

Cursive Handwriting: The students practiced writing the lowercase cursive letters h and k. To make a lowercase cursive letter h they learned to loop up to the top line, straight to the baseline, bump up to the midline and down to the baseline. To make a lowercase cursive letter k they learned to loop up to the top line, straight to the baseline,
slide up to the midline, circle around, touch halfway between the midline and the baseline and kick out to
the baseline.

Academic Enrichment ~~~ Cuyahoga Falls Campus ~~~ Week of 2/18/2019

Lesson:
This week we started our two week journey in the fascinating world of Geometry.   We learned that there is just not one kind of triangle.  Actually, there are many kinds of triangles but we focused on three (Equilateral, Isosceles, and Scalene).  We then looked at quadrilaterals which are any four sided shape (square, rectangle, rhombus, trapezoid, chevron).  We moved on to polygons (pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon).  Learning how to count in Greek really paid off during this session.

 

 

Handwriting:
We practiced cursive…

Academic Enrichment ::: Cuyahoga Falls Campus ::: Week Of 2/11/2019

Lesson:
We broke away from the four operations and learned about fractions.  The purpose of fractions are to help the child gain a sensorial impression of fraction, introduction to the concept and notation of fractions, sensorial exploration of equivalency among fraction.  We divided things like circles, triangles, and rectangles.  We divided the class into boys/girls, Mr. John’s Students/Ms. Kate’s Students, and Buckeye Fans/xicigan fans.  No xicigan fans were found.

 

1/3 boys, 2/3 girls in my Kindergarten Class.

A Peek Into Reading Group

The group listened to a story called Screen of Frogs. It was about a lazy, rich, man who refused to work. He bought many things with his money and ended up having a lot of debts. The man was going to sell his land and mountainside to pay off his debts. While he was measuring his land, Koji got tired and fell asleep. He was suddenly awoken by a large green frog dressed in weeds. The frog pleaded with Koji to not sell his land so that the animals don’t go homeless. The man decides to keep his land and work in order to pay back his debts.

The kindergartners participated in interpretive and evaluative activities to aide in comprehension. They wrote down what they were wondering about while listening to the story, drew what Koji was thinking about when the frog talks to him, drew Koji’s land, and whether they would sell the screen if frogs or not.

These students are sharing their drawings of what they think Koji’s land looks like:

Academic Enrichment ||| Cuyahoga Falls Campus ||| Week Of 2/4/2019

Lesson:
We learned how to divide with the 9 tray.  We learned the terms of equation, dividend, divisor, quotient.

Purpose For The 9 Tray:
The Nine Tray is an important lesson in the sequence of the golden bead work.  This presentation allows the child to concretely see the growth of numbers and the progression through the hierarchy from one level to the next. Children are ready for this work when they can identify numbers 1-9 and after they have been introduced to the golden beads and the language of place value: units, tens, hundreds and thousands.

 

Handwriting:
We practiced cursive… q,r,s,t,u
