Pics from the Week:
Since Capt. N only had school 2 days this week, I took this luxury to do some fun stuff for math. He made his first tessellations. He loved them. I'm so proud of the effort he put into them.
|We started out easy by simply making a tessellation out of a hexagon. Then we decided it looked like a bee hive so Capt. N added a bee.|
|He first traced the shape in pencil, then went over those lines with a thin sharpie. Next he added the details of the cat.|
|The finished kitty tessellation. It took him way longer to make this than I was planning. But, he really tried his best & I think it turned out fantastic.|
|He loves his calculator, but I rarely let him use it. So I thought he would really enjoy these worksheets about turning the numbers on the calculator into words. The worksheets are from Super Teacher Worksheets.|
We learned about bees by creating a fold out page in his Animal Kingdom book.
|He added the hexagon tessellation to the front.|
|The page opens up to see this. The information is from a variety of sources including magazines and Homeschool Share. Capt. N was really into this.... Now, if only he'd have the same enthusiasm for reading & writing.|
|I really liked these little tri-fold information cards.|
Even though it was a short school week, that didn't mean Capt. N got to slack off the rest of the week.
|We still did our partner reading of Farmer Boy.|
|And, he practices the keyboard daily.|
|He also has vision therapy stuff he has to work on daily.|
|And, tae kwon do.|
|And we got artsy making pumpkins. Capt. N's favorite was his one eyed vampire pumpkin .|
