Happy Monday! Brr it is so cold here. We went from 50’s down to 20’s in a few days time. Last week we learned about Artic Animals. Chloe loves Polar Bears and Penguins. We read and colored a book about other artic animals that live there with the polar bears and penguins. We also watched a National Geographic for kids video on YouTube about the Artic animals. She liked it because she never took her eyes off of it. We labeled the parts of a polar bear and talked about how God created all of the animals we were learning about. We did an activity called polar bear math using her ice cubes from her Don’t Break the Ice game and her polar bear figure she has. We added and subtracted. We also played the game Don’t Break the Ice. She loves when the penguin falls in the ice. LOL. She did a lot of independent reading and played language art games on her tablet. We started learning about specific Community Helpers and I am going to make her a book about them to keep in her book shelf. I am also working on several Social Stories for her as well. Our Bible time this week was about Zaccheus. She likes her new book The Bible Made Easy for Kids. I really love it!!
I wish I had more pictures, but I seem to forget when we are in the middle of learning. I set up my camera for my YouTube channel, so if you want to see what we did you can go over to our channel with the same name and watch the video. It will be uploaded Monday by 6 pm Central time.
I have been homeschooling Chloe for 3 years and have tried many different ways of teaching her. I do want a more simple homeschool approach. I have been working for a few weeks on this and will be posting the results very soon. The simpler I make our learning the more she wants to do it. This past week she even asked to do “Mommy School” which is what she calls our learning time. I am very excited about the changes I am making. I will still set up tray activities for her during the week. As I have said I want her to enjoy learning and I believe this will help.
I found all of her Polar Bear and artic animal activities on teachers pay teachers.
I hope all of you have a wonderful and blessed day.
