Fun @ 4: Horned Dinosaurs

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

Today was another exciting day of learning.  Some days I wonder who is more excited in our house, me or the boys. 

Reading:

We continued You Can Read Unit 7.  We also read half of the second BoB book in set 1.  Thing 1 did great.  I think he just needed a little bit of motivation.

Math:

In math this week we started talking about fractions.  Using pattern blocks I introduced the idea of a whole and 1/2.  Thing 1 picked up the concept in no time.  He even looked at me at one point and said, “that was easy.”

Science:

Horned dinosaurs was our focus today.  So while I read a book about horned dinosaurs, I had Thing 1 look through all of the dinosaurs we have and find the horned dinosaurs.  However the highlight of today’s dinosaur study was making triceratops masks.  Thing 1 wanted to make a pentasaurus mask, but I was having a lot of trouble making horns.  Oh well.  Thing 1 had a great time decorating and making his mask.  The only part I did was making the horns and the string that holds the mask onto his head.
