Week of Nov 4th to Nov 8th, 2013

A Peek at Our Week

In Geography we began visiting the continents starting with North America, the children were introduced to the countries of North America.

In Zoology, we began our study of fish, another group of vertebrates. The children had a lesson on the Parts of a Fish, Fish Puzzle and different kinds of Fish.

Other popular works have been corn tweezing and pin-punching the world map.

We would love some donations of Indian corn so that we can continue with corn tweezing. This is a great activity that promotes concentration and fine motor skills and always a favorite amongst the children.

Next Week

We will be making stone soup (taken from the story,’ Stone Soup’) and fresh butter next Thursday, November 21, 2013 with the class, so we will need some ingredients to be brought in. To be sure we get all the ingredients; I assigned certain items to each student. The children will wash, cut and prep the vegetables to make the soup on Thursday and on Friday we will eat our soup for snack.

If there is a problem bringing in any items, please let me know and I can take care of it. We need all these items by Wednesday, Nov 20, 2013 except for the bread if we can have it on Friday that would be great!!
