I introduced Sentence Analysis for D this week. After my introduction she worked on it on her own creating her own two word sentences, cutting and placing it under the right label.
|The chart I made looks really bad, doesn't it?!|
D prefers making her own sentences to diagram. Here is one she dictated to me and then diagrammed! Can you see that we are big Magic School Bus fans here!
She got to the next box in Grammar. This was Singular and Plural: adding "s". She did this in one go and told me it was too easy for her. I think this is because we did cover this topic during our primary language sequence.
Metal Insets are a favorite here. I am glad I purchased this plastic set from eBay for $20. Worth the money!
She worked on subtraction story problems this week. I also introduced the small bead frame (done on the Large Bead Frame at our place!).
Here D is labeling each angle in the triangles of the geometric cabinet to be either right, acute or obtuse. This was a followup of the angles presentation we did last week.
We are also trying out this brilliant idea of work plans. Anytime D did something other than what was there on the plan, she wanted me to add it. So I have a bunch of blank cards on there for her to use as she pleases. This is still a work in progress and we are finding out what works and what does not. Will post more as we discover more.
Of course, M needs to have her own too. I had only one more pocket chart in green, so we used this pencil holder as her second one!
To finish off, here is a piece of art from D. One day this week, I found this crumpled piece of paper on the floor and found D stomping it over and over. When questioned she told me that she wanted to create texture just like how it is in the cave walls and that was her technique!!!
|Oil Pastels. Crumpled and stomped on for the texture!|
