Really my head is so in 4th grade world now, my notebook, papers, books often in my lap, even accompanying me outdoors this weekend. Lesson planning is so much fun, even if I am a little bit behind.
But more on fourth grade another time, for now here are the last of my 3rd grade pictures...
In November as part of a main lesson on time we made our calendar for the coming year.
I think I mentioned before that I let Chloe have a lot of freedom with her drawings last year. While I did miss sitting down and working on a picture with her it was also neat to see what she was coming up with on her own. I think this year we will do some of both ways.
We also wrote and illustrated a calendar verse that we had learned the year before. Since we had only recently introduced cursive this was good for practice.
In the middle of winter we did another time lesson. (I think our first block was 3 weeks, this second one was much shorter.) I am realizing just now that I don't have a picture of the clock that Chloe made, it was cute with flowers and butterflies, she enjoyed that activity.
We used a Dorothy Harrer verse to learn about second, minutes, hours...
So here is a more simple blackboard that went along with our lesson. But see how I managed to get some form drawing into the lesson? Chloe did similar borders on some lesson book pages. I'm feeling kind of clever for it. (Though also feeling not clever for neglecting form drawing for much of the year.)
And now on to fourth grade. And kindergarten too!
(And I guess depending on where you are there is still a bit of time left to enter the giveaway. I will announce the winner some time tomorrow evening.)
And oh yes, I must also say thank you to everyone who shared kind words on my last post. Really, thank you so very much, and you prove my point, there are nice people :)
