The plan with the calendar is to color in or trace name of the month and year on the first class day of the month and color or trace the date number each day. I also want to talk about exciting things happening that week or month and put some sort of marker or sticker on the date we're looking forward to. For example, when the kids get to visit grandparents we'll put a special mark. When we're planning a field trip, we'll have a different mark. I'm hoping this will help develop an understanding of time passing.
The plan with the weather graph is to check the weather each day. We'll keep track of the weather patterns for each month and begin an understanding of making graphs. Look there! That's math AND science. I'll let you know in a few weeks how it's going!
I love homeschooling!
