Home Learning Week 8 - Pizza, Alberta, Halloween


Oral reading, discussing, retelling
Junie B. is a little bit feisty, and a little bit funny at the same time.

Executive Functioning - Cooking

Planning, decision making, cutting, spreading, taking initiative
I literally just made a pizza on my own. That's impressive! Do you think I put a lot of effort in there?

Do you need a hug? 

You think about it, Mom. Don't try that at home - seriously Mom - don't try that at home when you were a kid: cutting by yourself is not safe when you were a kid if your mom didn't teach you the safe way.

Colourful Pizza:
Lots of ingredients: peppers, cucumbers, pineapple, pepperoni, capers, olives, mozzarella, crust. And tomato sauce! Don't forget that, Mom!

Bake 10 minutes @ 450ºF

Let's eat!
Yeah, let's eat! Don't write that down. Erase "let's eat" - Princess Manners! (OK - you can leave that in.)

Math - Addition and Subtraction
Printing - 8

Adding, subtracting using Math Playground Number Bars (virtual cuisenaire rods) - homework, VLC
I am learning quickly! Make the 14. Get the 9. Put it on the top or the bottom? What toys did I have have when I was a baby? What do I do now? 14 minus 9 equals blank... 5!

Geography, Language Arts - Alberta

Researching, writing, recalling. Mind map from VLC.

Homework - watch a Youtube video about Alberta and find three facts:

  1. Alberta has buffalo. One buffalo, two buffalo. Don't put an "s".
  2. Alberta has pontoon planes for landing on water because there are lots of lakes. Pontoons are not wheels. They look like big water skis.
  3. Alberta's flower is wild rose. They are pink.
  4. Alberta's licence plate says, "Wild Rose Country". There is a picture of a wild rose on it.
  5. The BC licence plate has "Beautiful British Columbia" and a picture of the BC flag.

Recycling, Traditions, Communication, Art - Halloween

The interview was fine. You can hear it on Halloween day at about 12:30.

Here are some zero waste Halloween ideas:
A skeleton made of milk cartons. Somebody drank a lot of milk!

Cut out Mexican decorations - papel picado. That means punched paper. It is HARD!

Paper plates and garbage bags

It was basically a festival we went to. It's a pumpkin patch.

Pumpkins made of paper

 Language Arts - Paragraphs, Topic Sentences

What has an ice-cream sandwich got to do with a paragraph?
All I want to do is finish this one, then that's it!

Math, Gardening, Science, Fine Motor - Graphing Slugs

Adding 1, graphing, counting by 5,
comparing, colouring inside the lines,
physical activity, Vitamin D!
We found 120 slugs! That's a lot of slugs! Look how huge this is!

I want to play with Math Playground now. It's math, but it's a playground. It has lots of stuff there. It's fun. Let's go now.
