Week of 09/21/2014-09/27/2014

Reading/Language Arts : Continued reading the Tale of Paddy Muskrat, and entering it into the reading journal. The poem we learned this week was "Who is that singing?" by Maud Keary.

Math : Did several worksheets, including : counting money, telling time on an analog clock, filling in the missing numbers in subtraction, addition, multiplication, and a multiplication speed sheet. She also practiced reciting her 2, 5, 10, and 11 times tables and did once a day.

Social Studies : Read “Bridget of Ireland" and drew a picture relating to the story.

Science : This week we researched natural cycles some more, focusing on natural rhythms in nature. We discussed things that changed in each season (to plants, animals, weather, sunlight) and she drew a picture showing some differences visually.

Health : This week we discussed personal safety, including what to do if you're lost, both in crowded areas and in isolated areas.

Art : LOTS of drawing and coloring this week. Mimzy has really started to show great creativity and interest in her art. 

Music  : Continued learning recorder. She also spends lots of time every day learning new songs, singing, and dancing!

Craft : Continued learning to crochet. Mimzy hasn't made a scarf yet, but she has had a lot of fun making various jewelry items and "ropes". We also started collecting fallen leaves for later craft projects.

Extra : Karate lessons, Spanish lessons at Duolingo, and a trip to the Art Museum to see an exhibit on The Art of Video Games!
