Week 3: One With Nature September 22, 2011

Today was my third day of teaching the kids science and languages. Take a look at my previous post if you want to check out the lesson plans I wrote up. I’d love for anyone to benefit from my work. But they’re not super impressive or anything.

Here’s what we did today:

We explored the different parts of plants.

Aren’t they super cute in their gloves? And I found them for $.50 each at Walmart!

They collected examples of the different parts of plants and glued them on their papers.

They planted flower seeds (sunflowers or morning glory). In these pictures they’re getting dirt from the big bucket to put in their smaller pots (made from
Bamboo! Found them at Walgreens for $.79 each).

We reviewed our lessons on butterflies (from the last 2 weeks) and then let our butterflies go. Haddie and Titus enjoyed holding them (even though T doesn’t look too excited here). Malachi was strangely terrified of them.

They sang a Bible song (“Read Your Bible, Pray Everyday”) with Seth.

And Seth read them a story about Creation. By this time they were dragging and losing attention, so I figured having Seth read would be a good change of pace.

The kids colored a mini book about the creation story while listening to the “God Made Everything” song. These books and the CD are from the new Bible story book that I ordered from Twin Sister’s Publications. So far, I’m pretty impressed with the books and CDs I bought!

Titus did a great job coloring, although most of it was in black. He says it’s his favorite color. And you can really tell! Lol.

This is one of the best jobs that Haddie has done coloring. I was amazed how careful she was being.

Today was a great day! They started out a bit bored and distracted looking, but it didn’t take too long to get then more interested. They really are adjusting to sitting still better and getting used to the whole school idea. I’m excited to teach again next week! And I can’t wait to see how much they continue learning and growing!
