Dragon’s first week of Jr Kindergarten went well. There were some hiccups with technology for her virtual classes for her real school on the first day, but after getting a new link (and downloading new firmware for the camera) the second day went much smoother – other than several meltdowns from a very tired Dragon. We’re trying to figure out how to have her be part-time (one day a week), with the teacher’s assistance.
As for the part of her week taught by me, that also went well, for the most part.
Ballet was a big hit
We listened to a bunch of French music. Coeur de Pirate was the favourite.
We managed to get a few stitches in.
Worked really well. The blank sheet was used on the second day with the filled in sheet as a guide for spelling.
Counting objects/math-type activities
The download sheet worked really well. She got to practice writing numbers and she counted well.
She enjoyed the books, but I’m not sure she understood them
Baking – cake – talked about mixing colours and measurements.
Painting – free-style with Crayola washable paint on paper – talked about mixing colours.
Make a paper lantern – need
construction paper, paper bag, stencil (in download material), cardboard box, paper towel folded in fourths, and screwdriver thumb tack, and pen (instructions are Number 11). Put the paper bag over the cardboard box, and slide the folded paper towel in between the box and the bag. Place the stencil over-top of the bag/paper towel. Use the screwdriver to punch holes in the stencil/paper bag. Be careful not to move the stencil, or you will mess up your design. (Edited in italics after attempt.)
