grade 1, block I: letter introduction (week 3)

monday, september 28th

main lesson:
*form drawing, "wave running form"

*introduce with a short story,
we actually sang "the ants go marching one by one (hurrah, hurrah!)"

lesson b:

we finished our "michaelmas star balls", the boys wanted brighter colors, so we used kool-aid

and it was a gorgeous & blustery day in western north we flew kites.

it is a bit frustrating to do here. there are so many trees that the winds come from all directions. but the boys kept at it and we had a few good runs. i had to forgo the picture taking to help out though. :)
