Day 4

Dancing and Excersize(30 minutes)
Do stretches and Childorobics before you work into the Creative Dance Lessons. Begin the Dance lessons again with stop and go music and the children freezing at the stop of the music. However, today you are going to talk about directions. Tell the children in dancing we go in different patterns and directions, so you are going to need some blank paper to dtaw different patterns of direction on. Then you are going to lead them into dancing in those different directions. The directions and patterns they dance in do not have to be the ones drawn but they can be.
Math(30 minutes)
For math this day use animals to count or do figures with. If into Geometry, plan how  tall and wide your buildings will be in your next lesson.
Calendar, History, Social Studies, Reading,Writing, Language, Art(30 minutes)
Now we will again look at the birthdays. I have lost September 2 and 3 in my Book 1, therefore, we will have to do without them, at least for now , maybe I will find it later and we can add it. On September 12 Ricard March Hoe, American Inventor of the rotary press used in newspaper printing. Explain how this is done and go over what you have written for your family, neighborhood, ect. Newspaper. Name your newspaper. Let the children know that last Wednesday the 4th of September  was Newspaper Carrier Day. Discuss what they know about this together. Next talk about the drawings we do in cartoons that are in the newspaper. Then talk about the Cave drawings first men did on cave walls, even then they must of had a sense of sharing happenings to the future. One of the famous Paintings was called the Lascaux Cave paintings that depict a variety of animals important to people who lived 10,00 to 35,000 years ago. I did not want to go past the 1700's in history for our line or recordings but these drawings were found in France September 12, 1940 by a boy and his dog. Therefore if you have any brown paper crumple it up and the children do some animal paintings on it themselves. You can use stones, plain paper or something with your own imagination. Then they can do some drawing and coloring of cartoon characters on paper also. Other birthdays will include that of Jesse Owens, American track star who won four gold medals at the 1936 Summer Olympics In Berlin Germany. He was born in 1913 September 12. Adolf Hitler developed the Olympics thinking he would prove that the Black race of people were not as capable as the rest of society called the "Aryan race"  theory. Jesse Owens proved him wrong. He won gold medals in the 100 meters, 200 meters, 400-meter relay and long jump at this Olympic competition. Talk about this racial or ethnic prejudice doings with your children and point out some other examples of this use in past societies. See how they feel about it. Record the feeling in their likes and dislikes. Another birthday would be on September 4 of Syd Hoff, children's author. He was born that day  in 1912. read any books by him you may have or can get ahold off. The next birthday is also on September 4 1848, Lewis H. Latimer, co-developer of the electric Light bulb was born. Talk about electricity some more from the day of Benjamin Franklin and what it would be like if we did not have any lights but why it is important to conserve them. The next birthday would be of Daniel Burnham, architect and city planner born September 4, 1846. Now bring in the history events of Henry Hudson dicovering the Island of Manhattan September 4, 1609. You might be able to find more on Henry Hudson and discuss him further or do with tomorrows lessons because there is a history even on  New York. Look up Huson river in the computer or get a book about it there is also some songs I will try to find for tomorrow. Next history event for September 4 was that of the Spanish settlers founded Los Angeles in 1781. Now use the city planner, Hudson, and the Spanish settlement for a town or city name game in Book 1. For it says the Spanish settlers named their village El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles, which means "The Town of Our Lady, the Queen of the Angels." Talk about how they may have come up with that name and other names people have named towns, streets, buildings, ect after. Develope a town of yur own either on paper or with little boxes and things on a poster board. Marking streets, bridges, rivers, buildings, ect Then sing the song "Wheels on the Bus." If you can't remember it or find it somewhere call and Grandma will give it to you. Next record on the calendar Jesse James, outlaw of the American West Born September 5, 1847. Discuss if anything is named after him and why. Next record the birthday of Johann Christian Bach, German composer and youngest son of Johann Sebastian Bach. See if you can find anything about them and  discuss them. Then try to form a song of your own like one I had made up to give my students a tour at my house.  The last birthday to record would be that of Arthur C. Nielsen, market researcher and developer of the Nielsen system of rating TV shows. Talk about TV, movies, ect. and figure out why a rating might be important. Talk about the amount of TV that should be allowed and why. Tie into this the fact that September 5 was Be-Late-for-Something Day. How we are all so busy and tied up in stress of our day. The do this activity called Procrastination time. For the Procrastination Club of America has declared Sept. 5 as this day to put away watches and forget about the stresses and strains of being on time. Cover the clock up, ask the children what makes us all late. What things we might be late for and why. Discuss it at the end of the day to see how it came out. Besides ending the day with your weather reports, news, yearbooks, journals, Older children recording words Look at some words, sounds, ect. in German and Spanish. I am not sure on French. I think I have a book her of that. I also have some chinese words written, I will give later.
