When I was young, there was a public service announcement on television that went like this: “It’s (name the time). Do you know where your children are?”
This blogpost is a telling of your children’s full day at school!
8:30: Worship, Greeting one another, games. In worship, we view a video of a teacher leading worship, and respond to it:
8:45: Reading and Writing. Currently, students are putting finishing touches on their poetry so that they are ready for the Poetry Publishing Party. While Levi types his poem,
Ruby and Tate practice reciting a poem by heart.
10:00 Music and Spanish: There is drama in Spanish and there are buckets in Music!
10:45: Park – time to run!
11:15: Math time. Students are adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers. They might go “shopping” and spend $10.00 to buy at least 3 items – and calculate the change they’d expect. It takes estimation, addition, AND subtraction to go through that process.
There’s always time for a celebration. These students are displaying their latest IXL certificates.
12:15 Lunch – sometimes there is a game!
1:00- Project Time and Science – In project time, students are finishing their work with wire.
Science: Plant and Animal Populations. By now, your children have observed and counted daphnia, damselflies, aphids, ladybugs, and fruit flies. Here is a photo showing the daphnia count for one vial.
2:30: Clean up, Pack up, Prayer: The candle is extinguished and children line up for dismissal.
