We then moved on to reading about black-tailed prairie dogs in the Ultimate Guide to wildlife in North America.
and the very next sentence I read said that they barked and that's why they are called prairie dogs. Interesting that. :) I like having an observant boy child.
Then we read from our world history book. We are learning about pirates.
This sticker book has it's focus more on the life of a pirate, what the ship was like. The lad wanted to do two pages again today, but we were at the library, the weather was looking very grey and I had bunnies on the lawn and was feeling nervous about that. So ended up only doing one.
We have started to go through this book called "the big book of questions and answers about Jesus."
Each question is laid out over two pages. It starts with reading material and introduces the topic and then has activities for the child to do. Today's lesson was on where Jesus lived.
While at the library we did some bookwork.
But first we returned some books. it was a bit nerve-wracking because I knew we had 27 books out, but I counted 26 and simply couldn't find the last one. It was like ACK!!! I don't want to pay for this book!!! but somehow between home and the library it showed up in the library bag.
First grade fundamentals: we focused on reading stories and answering questions.
it means we have to focus. We have to be quiet. We can't argue about what we get to work on. AND if if a certain young lad is good and smart he can earn extra stickers for thinking of new things he can work on with his mommy. :) Always a good thing that!
