Our illustrated History Sentence...
Can I just say I love love love that our timeline, history sentence, and geography all go together this week! So easy to explain everything in context.
I'm going to post more of these soon (weeks 11-24). I think I might actually get to them this weekend! My husband is taking the kids all day for some quality time with him, which equates to a,
"Who hooo! I can get work done!"
Ok, and for Math this week, as stated in a previous post, I broke down and actually bought a box of Cheez It. I know, I hate going out and buying for a simple illustration, but heh, the kids loved it and we got the concept of squared numbers.
First I explained what a squared number was, then I wrote out the sentence and next the symbol.
Then he counted up each squared number and wrote the sum.
Next, I traced the outside (not too close as I would ruin our precious snack food),
increasing slowly, showing him our memory board and where to find the pattern for the sums of squared numbers. Then you can follow up with the CC song for Math this week.
Hope you guys enjoy the rest of your week!
Blessings to you all!
