Day 144

Today went a lot like yesterday.  He played outside for a few hours and came in when he wanted.  Then he read book after book after book on his bookshelf and from his kindle.  Mommy read a few books to him to per his request.  He spent over an hour trying to learn how to play chess.  He played on his cursive app for arount half an hour.  He spent close to two hours on various math apps.  He practiced playing whatever he wanted on the piano for about 45 minutes!

Unschooling

Today was supposed to be a day for him to relax and play outside.  After a few hours of both he went to his ipad (despite my objections that it was not a school time day)!

He read book after book on his kindle for over an hour.  Since he always gets to pick out whatever books he wants and however many during  "school time" he loves to read all the time!

A little later he played on a few different math apps for over an hour.  He doesn't so much as like math as much as reading, but he loves the prize points the games give him!

Then he spent an hour and a half trying to learn how to play chess on his Dinosaur Chess App.

We also talked about what ants do and learned about ant farms.

Playing "Store" to help kids understand the concept of money.

Today we worked on Zennan understanding the concept of money and how it works.   He was given fake money to buy toys which consisted of one $10 bill, one $5 bill, and four $1 bills.  Each time he picked a toy it cost something that needed him to use a certain combination of bills such as $7, $12, $17.  He had fun and got a better understanding of how to use his addition skills while handling money.
(45minutes)

 

 





He read at the library today.
- Flap Your Wings
- Fox in Socks
- Simon's Bug (Primary Science Topic: Insects)
- Lady and the Tramp

 
 

 
 
 
Then he sat down to listen to story time.
 
 
Before long he made his way to the front!
 
 
He couldn't help, but to share his thoughts !
 
 
Then they all made birdfeeders.
