Mary completed several projects during home school these last two months. The ones she enjoyed the most were geography and science.
Mary was a cartographer (mapmaker) and used the entire dining room table to map out our town. She used blocks, colored paper, monopoly pieces, poster board, stickers, and markers. Then she made a path to follow to get to a friend's house. She had to remember (from taking walks in town) what and where buildings were and the names of streets. Mary also learned about stop signs/lights and crosswalks.

Some of the other things Mary did this spring:
Math - Mary did math with checkers. She is in the emergent adding stage.
Spelling - Mary works on spelling using her light board.
Science - Mary learned about birds (she was an ornithologist!) and can discuss their life cycles. She learned about many different types of birds in many different habitats.
History - Mary studied US symbols and made her own flags.
ELA - Mary wrote a letter to her grandmother and drew her a picture, too! (shhh! don't tell - it's for her birthday!)
Reading - Mary loooooves to read and tries to have discussions about the books she reads.
I'm really proud of Mary. I'm pretty impressed at how resilient she is!
