10 minute stories
Today's story was about A fellow with a really big nose and all that happened with him. It was just an odd story. It did point out the value in not believing all that you are told though.
We have started a section on Knights and Castles. The lad is captivated..and all he wants to do is build a castle for one of his toys. Made schooling a bit of a challenge. :)
We then moved on to working with math using reflex. He continues to gain in fluency. While he did this, I got the dishes done. :)
We continued work on our spider study
We learned there are three suborders.
We built a spider using a laminated one we had.
We talked about all the different parts to a spider.
We learned about spider eyes, moulting, etc.
We reviewed what we did previously.
The lad played with Lego building something for the castle that was needed.
We then worked on our animal of the day. Leopards. :) We did the snow leopard to be precise.
we watched part of this series of videos.
we laughed at this
Fact that the lad liked: they live up high in the mountains.
Sad fact: they are highly endangered.
Word of the day: abbey - a place where monks and nuns live, work, and pray. Usually connected to a church.
We will play for a while and then hopefully make some cookies. :) We had planned a walk to the library but we have buckets of cats and dogs falling from the sky and being hit by a falling cat is not our idea of fun. :) Even if a boy child says "can I have one of those falling cats?" :)
