Here are photos of the books that DJ has been reading at home.
Parts of the castle. I purchased this at the Montessori Goldmine Shop.
DJ also has been learning about dinosaurs . Here he is working with a book that came with dinosaurs. He is sorting them by time periods.
DJ also lost another tooth this week.
Here are the books Ken has chosen to independently read.
Ken started to read these books on Monday. The Magic Treehouse series are her favorite chapter books . Ken has read through to chapter four in A Ghost Tale for Christmas Time. Rags and Riches: Kids in the time of Charles Dickens she has completed chapter 1. When she chose this book on Sunday we watched the movie A Christmas Carol as a family. Ken has lots of questions about England during the time of Queen Victorias' reign. New vocabulary has been introduced to Ken that she is enjoying.
Working with cards of people and places in Europe, and finding the countries on the Europe control map.
Working with Fundamental needs of people cards. This is our foundation point with reading the book Rags and Riches. Ken was really struggling with the concept that children as young as five years old lived in workhouses.
A close up of some of the cards. These were purchased from Montessori for Everyone.
Adding with the Golden Beads. A lightbulb moment for Ken! She was so proud of successfully completing this work, four digit addition was challenging for her.
To celebrate her accomplishment she relaxed with doing some sand art.
Michelle has been studying the map of Asia. Also she has taken to learning about chemistry. I personally feel that make up is not for any child or teen in my home. I do feel that you can learn something about anything. To understand chemistry in a way that may relate to some interest , I purchased this kit that was on sale at Hobby Lobby. It teaches about our skin , and how to keep our skin healthy with cosmetics as a way of delivering this science. Lots of wonderful science experiments. Michelle has been reading the handbook that came along with this kit whenever she gets a chance.
Experimenting a little.
Well this is it for our first afterchool wrap up. Thank you for reading!!
