Rest of June for Summer

Grandma is ready to finish June's Summer Calendar History as follows:

June 18th Birthdays begin as follows:

June 18, 1942 Roger Ebert, movie critic, was born.

Book (1) gives an activity here called "Picks and pans-Have your (children) discuss the kinds of things critics like Roger Ebert talk about when reviewing a movie--for example, plot development, acting, musical score, originality, humor, suspense. Then have the kids read several movie reviews in the local newspaper. Afterward, show a film and ask each (child) to critique it, either orally or in writing.

More of June and the Circus


We left off in the History Calendar of Book (1) towards the end of June 15. The rest of the day into the 16th and 17th Grandma will cover along with lessons on the Circus in Book (1) and Book (57). Before lessons I want to add a note to parents in our Home Education Program of home schooling a few pointers. That is to make sure you have a line of some kind set up to attach notes of history on beginning with the time of dinosaurs and man through the Bible and into American History along with space for any other history needed.

Ants as Insects

Grandma is making this section separate because there was quite a bit on the Insect part and there is quite a bit here. The part on ants is as follows:


                            " Those Amazing Ants! by Becky Daniel and Jo Jo Cavalline

Did you know that there are more than 10,000 different kinds of ants?

I may be hard to believe, but some ants can lift more than fifty times their own weight.

Insects lesson

Grandma is giving you a lesson for Insects from Book (57). There is something I want parents to understand. While you are starting your children with a new year of lessons, the public schools are having to test their children to see what level of learning they are at during this time. That gives you one advantage.

The Unit on Insects is as follows:

                                    "Bub Bonanza by Mary Ellen Switzer

Zoos

Grandma left off in Book (57) when she came upon an event of June 15 about Congress creating the National Zoological Park in 1889. Grandma felt it was best to introduce some Units in Book (57) as part of the lessons. She gave you some information about a couple of National Parks which she will finish in November. Then she will now cover a Unit in Book (57) on Zoos which will tie to the animal study we started which she will end with another animal Unit from Book (57) that will end the year studies.

More of June Calendar for Summer Lessons

I am so pleased with all the answers I am receiving about the blogs and some of the material. It is very flustering when one is trying to get material to people and the machines just don't get the message that it is important. I do appreciate people being so patient with me.
There are a few more events to me added to June 12 history line from Book (1) as follows:

June 12, 1956 The Official Flag of the U.S. Army was adopted.

June 12,  1974 Little League was opened to girls.

June 12, 1979 Bryan Allen became the First Person to Fly a

Play Ball

Grandma is writing when Nebraska will be playing their first football game for the year this weekend. However, she has decided that since much of the work she has given you has been so late at getting there she wants you to understand that much of it can be carried on into September and throughout the year. Whatever it takes to add to the learning. Various sports is one of the lessons Grandma begins with so this could be used as an introductory to that lesson. The history you will receive for the summer months can just be given as that and added to what you have and you can start out again with the beginning of time and move onto each time in history, placing a little bit of the Bible at a time on the line as you cover it.

Some of June for Summer

Grandma left off on the birthday of Jacques Cousteau June 11 we will continue with the following:
 
1945 birthday of Robert Munsch, storyteller and children's author
 
1956 birthday of Joe Montana, professional football quarterback
 
Book (1) has an activity called "Sports role models-When Joe Montana started playing sports in grade school, he'd anxiously wait for his father to return from work so they could practice football drills. To develop his passing accuracy, he practiced throwing a football through a moving tire swing.

last part of Fishes

Grandma had this started last week upon returning from Mexico and her computer system did not want to cooperate. I was set up for a repairman from Hughes Net on September 8th. They called me Monday and said they were coming this Wednesday. What a relief, I was setting up for the library again. The repairman worked in the afternoon and then I called the Hughes Net technicians again and they decided it may also mean it was a bad connection wire which after some signals from him and a switch on wires it began to pick up Internet.

Fishes con't.

Grandma will finish the unit on fish in Book (57) here. She will next give you the Unit on Oceans which she have given first. She has a unit on bugs; one on ants; and one on butterflies all in Book (57). Then Book (57) has a unit on clowns and space for June and July so watch for them. Following is the rest of the fish:

"A Tale of Travel

Many aspects of the incredible migration and breeding habits of the European eel remain a mystery to science. Adult European eels live in fresh water for a time, Then they move toward the sea and change into saltwater fishes.
