today we did a couple of things.
We continued reading through
We did a fair amount of work on the letter ‘a’ through head of the class. Filling in the missing A, sounding out words, picture matching and what not. I really like that they use a variety of methods to teach the same concept.
We did a bit more research on the house centipede. 🙂
We talked about the difference between living and non-living things using as a basic talking guide the simple schooling e-book Living & Non-Living.
We continued our transportation theme by learning about air pressure and resistance, using a craft from Transportation Thematic Units (Enhanced eBook). We experimented a bit with adding a paper clip to see if that would make a difference in how the helicopter worked.
Both the simple schooling and transportation unit are available from Currclick. One of them currently is free.
