Today D1 did some quick math problems on the sidewalk. D1 (6), D2 (4), and D3 (3) painted their versions of modern art Piet Mondrian style. We used black electrical tape to make the black lines since the children lack coordination still to draw lines neatly. This activity was used to go over primary colors and the concept of horizontal and vertical. D1 pointed out that all the angles are right or 90 degrees from his first lesson in Beast Academy 3A.
Today D1 and D2 helped make a haiku to maybe go aboard the MAVEN that NASA is sending to Mars (they vote for the top three). The kids chose to write about the Titanic. We also submitted our names to be put on a DVD and be sent to the planet in the Going to Mars with Maven program.
This is the haiku (we didn’t follow all the rules but hey):
It was a cold night
An iceberg hit the bottom
The Titanic sunk!
D1 came home sick today from school. He spent his time waiting for us to pick him up drawing pictures from one of his favorite video games -Roblox. At home, we’ve been working on making sentences with the words that he is learning. He has come a long way, and I hope that he feels better soon.
