For language for the next month or so we will cover analogies, root words, latin phrases, quotations, commas, and interjections. This is a subject that they both are strong in, probably because most of their cultural interests definetly involves some language work of sorts.
Math for Ken is polishing up some regrouping issues with long divison, multiplying fractions, percentages, and measurements, decimals, and if she is ready we will tackle square roots again.
Math for DJ means multiplication works of many, multiples,factoring, parts of a fractions, division work, and 4 digit additon with regrouping. He may enjoy making fraction booklets, or circles. It is hard to say for DJ in this department because when he observes Ken, he really gets motivated to want to learn what she is learning.
We continue to explore Greek Mythology together it is so much fun! DJ still is doing some solar system work. They have interest in learning about national parks, and famous landmarks as well. DJ just asked me the other day what does BC, mean. I think it is definetly time to do a prehistoric timeline together. I think he was onto something when he was studying dinosaurs daily. I know he wants to know were dinosaurs the first to roam earth..I guess it time to find out buddy:)
So our shelves look a little bare, but there are definetly works that hold their interest.
This will probably become a familiar scene to you.
Here DJ is putting a world map together. The map will be a illustration of where different inventions came from. For example he will draw a picture of a mirror and then glue it on the continent of Africa, it was invented in Egypt.
Ken's new look!!
Today we were able to jumpstart some of Kens' plans by going to our local Children's Garden located on Michigan State University's campus.
Lots of plants!
Once Ken dip her fingers in the nectar she was able to hold the butterflies.
We had the pleasure to be in the Butterfly House all by ourselves! In fact we were given an open invitation to come at a certain time whenever we like:) Looks like Ken will be getting a lot of field work in. DJ wasn't too thrilled with this field trip he isn't too fond of butterflies: (
