Academic Enrichment — Cuyahoga Falls Campus — Week Of 12/17/2018

Lesson:
Intro to Decimals (unit, ten, hundred, and thousand) and the 9 tray. The 9 Tray purpose(s):

Direct
To make the child familiar with the different categories of numbers, especially with regard to reading the symbols.  To give the child the wording of large numbers

Indirect
For the hierarchy of numbers, that is, that while the significant figure are always from 1 to 9, it is the place they occupy in the complex number which gives them the importance of 1, 10, 100 or 1000.
For the fact that in a large number made up of two or more categories, the zero merely shows an empty place. That is, that one of the categories is lacking (in 1065, for instance, the hundreds are missing).
For the fact that only 9 of each category are necessary to form any number.

With Ms. Faith

The last story the kindergartners listened to was The Fire Cat. The story was about a cat who got into trouble a lot and didn’t have any friends. One day he chases a little cat up into a tree, and ends up getting stuck. A fireman comes to rescue him and ends up taking him to the fire house to become a fire cat.

Throughout the story the group was able to participate in discussion, share their opinions, and practice reading parts of the story aloud. They also completed comprehension activities that went along with the story.

The students are sharing their drawings of the fire cat chasing smaller cats

They are making sure the long edge of the paper in 11 inches or 28 cm. I could not get the picture to rotate so we are stuck with a surreal picture reminiscent of the TV series Batman.

With Ms. Faith

Our last story we read was called Me First. It was about a brother and sister who argue and have to be first for everything. Towards the end of the story, they end up helping eachother and allowing the other to go first.

The group discussed how they choose who goes first when they are playing a game. They wrote if they think the siblings should get on trouble for arguing, and they said no because they started being nice to eachother, and no because that means they would be in time out.

A Peek Into the Next Two Week

– The students will be reading a story called The Fire Cat.

– The students will participate in discussions and writing activities.

– The students will learn the vocabulary words: Mixed up, suddenly, wonderful.


Academic Enrichment | Week of December 3rd | Tallmadge

The kindergarten students have been working hard on learning dynamic addition and dynamic multiplication using the golden beads and the stamp game. This past week they were introduced to another work called the dot board to solve both static and dynamic addition problems.

Cursive Handwriting: The students practiced writing the lowercase cursive letters a, d, g, qu, c and o. To make a lowercase c they learned to curve around to just below the midline and roll back around to just above the baseline. To make a lowercase o they learned to curve around to just below the midline, roll back around past the baseline and up to the midline and dip connector at the midline. To make a lowercase g they learned to curve up to the midline, roll back around to the baseline, swing up to the midline and drop down half way past the baseline and swoop. To make a lowercase qu they learned to curve up to the midline, roll back around to the baseline, swing up to the midline and drop down half way past the baseline and hook up to the baseline then swing up to the midline and down to the baseline, swing up to the midline, and down to the baseline. To make a lowercase a they learned to curve up to the midline, rollback around to the baseline, swing up to the midline and down to the baseline. To make a lowercase d they learned to curve up to the midline, roll back around to the baseline, swing tall to the top line and slide down to the baseline.

 

Academic Enrichment | Week of November 26th | Tallmadge

Dynamic Multiplication: The students are doing dynamic multiplication using the golden beads. Dynamic multiplication simply means repeated addition where they need to carry over an amount. The process is similar to static multiplication except if the child has a group of ten he/she will need to exchange. Exchanging takes place when the child is combining the beads.

 

Cursive Handwriting: The students practiced writing the lowercase cursive letters a, d, g, qu, c and o.  To make a lowercase c they learned to curve around to just below the midline and roll back around to just above the baseline. To make a lowercase o they learned to curve around to just below the midline, roll back around past the baseline and up to the midline and dip connector at the midline. To make a lowercase g they learned to curve up to the midline, roll back around to the baseline, swing up to the midline and drop down half way past the baseline and swoop. To make a lowercase qu they learned to curve up to the midline, roll back around to the baseline, swing up to the midline and drop down half way past the baseline and hook up to the baseline then swing up to the midline and down to the baseline, swing up to the midline, and down to the baseline. To make a lowercase a they learned to curve up to the midline, rollback around to the baseline, swing up to the midline and down to the baseline. To make a lowercase d they learned to curve up to the midline, roll back around to the baseline, swing tall to the top line and slide down to the baseline.

Lesson:
Parts of Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians, Birds, and Fish –

We also learned the characteristics of those animals.  All of the above animals are vertebrates, some are cold blooded (amphibians, reptiles, and fish) and some are warm blooded (mammals and birds).  Some are born from jelly eggs (fish and amphibians), hard shell eggs (reptiles and birds), or born alive (mammals and fish).  All the animals skin is different.

 

The Kindergarten Students pretending to be their fave animals. From left to right…. flamingo, horse, frog…..

Dynamic Addition: The students are doing dynamic addition using the golden beads. Dynamic addition simply means addition where they need to carry over an amount. The process is similar to static addition  except if the child has a group of ten he/she will need to exchange. Exchanging takes place when the child is combining the beads.

Cursive Handwriting: The students learned and practiced the correct stokes to successfully make a lowercase c and lowercase o. To make a lowercase c they learned to curve around to just below the midline and roll back
around to just above the baseline. To make a lowercase o they learned to curve around to just below the midline, roll back around past the baseline and up to the midline and dip connector at the midline.
