MFW 1st Grade Days 27-31

MATH
It was shapes week and it's not a lot of worksheets involved. So, I asked Ian to go take pictures of stuff in the house that is of a certain shapes. It was a fun exercise for him.




After the photo session we read "Shapes Shapes Shapes" and saw other things in real life that have shapes. We had quite some fun in this book.

We do sums everyday (now it's addition of single digits or up to 10). And one day I let him do sums on iPad on this app (Mad Math) and he LOVED it. I won't do it all the time. Don't want technology to take over everything, but it was fun for him.

And we played our own version of Number War One day, using iPad as the score keeper.
I made a stack of 100 cards. We each flip over a card and the greater number gets a point. If it's a "ten" (like 20, or 30 etc) we have a "war". Each put out 4 cards, the least of the 4 cards is the war card. The greater of the two wins.

Book/Lapbook: Miss Rumphius.

I got TONS of ideas of Miss Rumphius here. It was a wonderful book to do a lapbook on. If I didn't do MFW, I probably will really enjoy FIAR. =)


The seeds booklet




SCIENCE: Thunderstorms
One Dark Night is a wonderful book. So is Flash, Crash, Rumble and Roll. Ian really got the idea of lightning and thunder. Henry and Mudge is easy to read and a fun story. Storms is a little too much.



OTHER TOPICS
We revised Obedience, Diligence and Attentiveness. We also memorized Ps 21:30 (There is no wisdom, no plan, no insight that can succeed against the Lord).

And we tackled the "oo" and the "oo" words. Not easy!

We learnt to draw the Bible map...will continue on Mon.
