Week 2 And Rolling

It has been an amazing start to the school year! After a total of 9 days with my lovely kiddos, I am beyond excited for this year to really get underway. This week we were able to move from the icebreaker activities that we covered last week and into some actual content materials. Here's our weekly breakdown:

Language Arts -
We reviewed the 8 Parts of Speech and took a deeper look at Nouns, Pronouns, and Adjectives. The Dolphins have absolutely done wonderfully with these parts of speech. We have taken down multiple sentences and we have dominated the three important parts. We have also rocked out to School House Rock and loved them! Our favorite of the week has definitely been the Pronouns. Check It Out
Also in L.A. we worked on our first units of Vocabulary and Wordly Wise. Through Vocabulary we reviewed the basics of prefixes, base words, and suffixes. Within the next couple of weeks we will focus on specific prefixes for various words and learn to use them regularly.

Social Studies -
We began our study of what Geography is. We learned the definition after brainstorming ideas and led into various landscapes. We distinguished the differences in human and physical characteristics in diverse landscapes and even gave our own examples. We have also ventured into the wonderful career of Geographers and how they gather their information as Scientists and Social Scientists.

This has been an awesome week and I can not wait to be back Monday morning! Everyone have a fantastic weekend :)
