Day 41

Dear folks:
 
The lessons for today are coming. Grandma had to get a new modem and it slowed her down some
. Today's and tomorrows lessons tie together anyway so be prepared that tomorrow's lessons will
go online early for tomorrow.
 
God left Moses and Aaron to meet in the garden and they were to meet with the Israelite elders and
then to face the hardened Pharaoh. Faith Alive tells about making bricks in "Life In Bible Times.
Making Bricks
People made brick by mixing mud with straw and pressing it into molds. An acid in the straw made
the bricks stronger. A person could make only about sixty-five bricks a day."
For going to the Pharaoh brought no straw and yet he insisted they make brick as Faith Alive points
out in "Let's Live It! Exodus 5:1-23
Things Go Wrong, answer these questions.
1 When Moses obeyed God, did good things happen right away?
2. Whom did the Israelites blame when told to work harder?
3. How did Moses feel when he obeyed God and the troubles of the Israelite slaves were made
worse?
Sometimes things appear worse before they get better. In the end, God enabled Moses to lead
 the Israelites to freedom. Remember some things that have happened to you. On a sheet of
graph paper, draw an up-and down line to show ups (happy times) and downs (tough times).
Label the days (or times of the day) each up or down took place. Now project into the future:
 Which way will your line go in the end?(Check out Philippians 3:14.)"
What does God say to Aaron and Moses in Chapter 6 and what do you think is going to happen?
 
 
I hope your tasks, responsibilities, or duties are done. Prayers or prayers lined up for the day.
For little ones string beads can be made from anyting that can be made or do slip on a string.
 Patricia Gallagher suggests dry cereal as one thing. Another thing mentioned in her activities is
Playing House This can be done with Cardboard boxes saved as refrigerators, sinks, and stoves
mentioned by Patricia. She also says Toy mops, dust pans, dolls, and crst are good props. Grandma
 has had a play set clear from her daughter Andrea almost 25 years coming. She keeps cleaning it
 up and takes care of it. Many a child has played with it. She has a bassenet given her for the baby
dols and puppets under that with gloves to make puppets with. Her granddaughter Eva likes to play
 house a lot with the barbie sets. All the girls have babies to play with and they are all sisters living
with Mom and Dad since we are down to one Ken. She suggests to name things pink today since
 
we may have forgetten about this one and the shape for this day is those things that are round.
Here is a good song for today's and tomorrow's lessons.from Patricia Gallagher's book. It is called
"Five Soldiers"
Five little soldiers,                                        (Hold up five fingers--right hand)
Standing in a row.
Three stood straight,                                    (Right thumb holds forefinger down, other
And two stood so.                                        three fingers stand)
Along came the captain,
And what do you think?                                (Thumb and forefinger raise up)
Those sodiers jumped up,
Quick as a wink!                                          (Be sure to wink an eye with this last word)
Words they learn with it(especially if it is written so they see the words-maybe some pictures with
 them)--Five, soldiers, little, stand(ing), in, a row, Three, two, stood, straight, and, so, along, came, the,
captain, what, do, you, think, those, jumped, up, quick, as, a wink
 
Here is a couple I failed to gie you:
"Me"
My hands upon my head                              (Do actions as described then bring hands down
I place,                                                           slowly and place them on their laps)
On my shoulders, on my
face,
On my knees, and at my
side,
Then behind me they will
hide.
 
Then I raise them up
s-o-o high
Til they almost reach the
sky.
Swiftly count them---
1, 2, 3,
And see how quiet they
can be.
Words with this are: My, hands, upon,  head, I, place, on, shoulders, face, knees, and, at, side, then,
 behind, me, they, will, hide
 
Another was "Use Your Eyes"
Use your eyes, use your
eyes,
You can look and see:                                 ( Leader calls for various colors of clothing)
If you have on __________
________.                                      ex: brown shoes
Come and stand by me.
 
Word are: Use, your, eyes, you, can, look, and, see, If, have, on, (the colors), come, stand, by, me
 
Here is one for any sleep time:
"Going to Bed"
This little boy(or girl, boys and girls                  (Use forefinger for boy or girl.
going to bed                                                   Lay finger crosswise
Down on the pillow he/she/they                                     on hand using thumb
lay(s) his/her/their head.                                           for pillow.
He/She/They wrap(s) himself/herself/themselves in the                                   Use fingers for cover)
covers tight,
And this is the way he/she/they
sleep(s) all night.
Morning comes, he/she/they open(s)
his/her/their eyes.
Off with a toss the covers fly.
Soon he/she//they is/are up and dressed and away,
Ready for fun and play
all day.
 
This is also good for learning when to use is/are also the s. Words: this, little, boy(s), girl(s), going, to,
 bed, down, on, the, pillow, he, she, they, lay(s), his, her, their, head, himself, herself, themselves, in,
the, covers, tight, and, this, is, way sleep(s), all, night,
Morning, comes, open(s), eyes, off, with, a, toss, fly, soon is/are, up, dress(ed), away, ready, for, fun,
play, day
 
Here is two more of Patricia Gallagher's songs that tie in with some of our dancing if you look close.

If you have not done any Childrobotics you can either do it now or skip it. Creative dance can be for
 today and tomorrow both. It is Lesson 21 from the chart given.
element: free flow, bound flow, and balance
helper: stillness
As the author goes on:
"Today instead of moving, we're going to concentrate on its opposite. What is the opposite of moving?
 Stopping. This time don't wait for me to stop you by stopping my drum, I want you to find how
exciting it is to stop on your own, even when no one else stops. Go
anywhere in the room, with the music, putting in stops whenever you like. Go. (play lively music.)
What makes an interesting stop? Shape, yes. This time when you stop, stop in a shape that is like
a sculpture--interesting to look at from all sides. Stop for as short or as long a time as you like. Start
 
to feel what it's like to stop when others are moving around you.
Feel what it's like to move when others have stopped. Go.
Let's forget stopping for a minute and think about free-flowing movement--movement that has no
thought of stopping, where the body just soars through space. You should feel that you are in a
perpetual motion machine. Feel the air moving past you at all times. Go.
Run through the room and feel the air move past your face. Keep the forward pressure even, and go
fast enough so that you can tell me the temperature of the air.
 Go. What is the temperature? Do it again. Now walk as slowly as you can and still moe with enough
 pressure to feel the air pass by you.
Move in that same free-flowing way, but change your level. Sit and roll and spin but keep moving,
 finding the momentum that will bring you to standing and running or skipping again. Go.
Now sit on the floor and combine free-flowing movement and stillness with just your arms. Move your
arms freely, feeling the air passing, then stop and hold till the air is quiet. Feel as you move that you
 are churning the air. Go. This time move your arms in the same
pathways, but feel as if you are pushing them through heavy water. Your arms are no longer free.
 The movement is bound. Now add stops to that bound
movement--short stops and short moves. Make it jerky. The movement along the pathway is bound.
Combine free-flowing and bound movements now with your whole body through space. This time add
balance. Try to be still at some very unusual or difficult point, such as halfway down to low level, or on
 one knee, or high on one foot, or halfway through a roll on the
 floor. Make the balance as exciting as the movement. Hold the balance as long as you can. Feel you
r whole body and the air become still and quiet. I won't play
 any accompaniment because you need to estalish your own rhythm for this. Go.
That was beautiful. Let's watch half the class at a time.
For our good-bye dance, let's combine free-flowing movement, bound movement, and balance, using a
 musical background. Feel what it's like to move freely, to move in a bound way, and then to hold a
balance while the music still moves. (Some soaring movie
 background music is good here.)
 
Goals for evaluation: Look for large use of space. This kind of spontaneous movement should feel good:
 watch for signs that the children are enjoying it. Their movements should show increases in range
and varietyI"
 
Ok folks! Because things kept getting in my way of typing up the rest of the Revolution and Recipe's
 today I decided to add some Math, Art, and Science on here. and do all the revolution on tomorrow's
lesson. I hope children worked on papers, reports , newspaper,
 journals, yearbooks today while waiting for Grandma. I hope you checked your calendars, organized
yourselves some, and filled out the weather calendar's or
charts. I only have two birthday's for today, November 5. Leon Philippe Teisserenc De Bort, French
 meteorologist who used balloons to investigate the upper
 atmosphere and who discovered the stratosphere was born in 1855. Roy Rogers, motion-piture
 cowboy, whom Grandma got to see occasionally on TV and if you
have never heard him sing, during Grandma's time he was well liked. He and his wife were very special
 people because they took in many foster children. He was
born in 1912 around the time of Grandma's grandfather. November 5 is also Guy Fawkes Day, during
 which British children celebrate the foiling of a 1605 plot to blow
up the Houses of Parrliament.
 
For Science today, I want you to get ready and go on a Nature walk this week to develope an
appreciation of Nature and the Environment. Grandma has talked a little about the Pollution happening
in our waters, the Trash, and Litter  left around especially in the cities.
 We have also talked about some Recycling. I hope you have discussed it as a family and found out
what things they recycle as well as decided what things you
can reuse or use in your family, Plastic containers, jars, cans, and meat trays have many uses.
Drums and instruments can be made from many things. Paper plates
and cups can be used for things. little boxes can make buildings, blocks, car tunnels and roads, doll
furniture, and castles of round things. Toilet tubes and
sticks, socks, rags, floor rug rags, pot holders, hot plate pads. and many other things.
Before you go on your walk start a booklet of things for collection, vocabulary, extinction, dinosaurs,
animals, insects.
Make a nature poster if you wish,
Paint various nature colors on a paper and look outside for those various colors. Cary a note pad of
observances.
Carry a bag with nets, jars or plastic containers in it tin foil, cloth netting, maybe a few little boxes.
As you are outside listen for all kinds of sounds in Nature, be sure to take notes.
Look at the various trees and see if you know which ones are which and what leaves they produce as
well as their fruit and flower. Observe flowers, moss, or weeds. Discuss all you see.
Take pictures of various things.
Pick a certain tree to study: determine how tall and compare with the others. take notes.
Talk and look at various leaves and smell each one, take notes.
Look through it's branches and take notes of what you see.
Depending on the size of the tree figure out how many arms it would take to go round it if it is large.
 Take notes.
 
When you get back home organize yourselves as a club to take care of the area you visited or your
 own yard.
Make membership cards, invite neighbors to help.
Pick up litter.
Take cans, plastic bottles and newspapers to recycling or someone who can use them.
Make posters about reducing litter, trash, recycle and care about their environment.
Plant a tree.
Clean up an area.
Plant and take care of flowers.
Listen to speakers talk about ways to reduce litter and trash.
Also try to make a mural of what you seen or would like to see.

rectangle, large circle and a small cirlcle. Row b has a big character made of a square for the body,
two rectangle legs a rectangle neck that goes up the back of a triangle head with a small circle eye.
It has one arm of a triangle. Next to the character is a small triangle with a small square above it,
then next to those are a rectangle with a small circle above it.
Here are the problems
 to read:Shapes and Patterns

Your page will read the following:
 
1. Write your name above box A.
2. Draw 2 children in box A. Decide how to divide the cookies fairly between the 2 children.
   Draw a circle around a set for each child. Then draw a line from each child to his set of cookies.
3. Two friends each bought 3 balloons. How many balloons did they buy in all? Write your answer in
   the blank by letter B.
4. Look at part C. Write in a multiplication sign next to the 4 on the first blank. In the second
   blank write the number you would multiply by 4 to reach an answer of 12. Finish the other
   blanks in the same way.
5. Look at part D. Here you see prices of parts at a hardware store. Listen to the items Sue is
   buying. Figure out how much she will spend. Sue needs 4 nails plus 1 bolt. Write how much
   she will spend next to her name. Tom will buy 2 nuts, 2 bolts and 2 nails. How much will
   Tom spend? Write your answer next to Tom's name.
6. Look at the boxes in part E. Put an X on the answer to 3 x 6. Circle the answer to 4 x 7.
 
 
 
The Next two pages have to do with Time, Money, and Measurement called Clocks, Coins, and \Rulers
 
For the Children's page A. is a big circle clock with the 12 at the top, the 3 on the side, the 6 at the
bottom and the 9 on the side it is suppose to be on.
B includes two smaller clocks, One says 2:00, the other says 2:30
part C is another smaller clock that says 5:00
D and E are two rows of a nickel and five pennies
F. is just a line like this_______________
So is G just the same
H. is three solid lines as follows
 
         _____________________________   ______________________    ____________________
 
I. has nothing in it
 
The parents instructions are as follows:
1. On clock A, add these numbers where they belong: 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11.Add an hour hand
   and a minute hand. Write your name under clock A. Discuss the amount of time each number
   lapses with each hand.
 
2. Look at the 2 clocks by letter B. Underline the clock that reads 2 o'clock.
 
3. Look at clock C. If Mr. Smith leaves for the beach at this time and drives for 2 1/2 hours, what
time will he arrive at the beach? Write your answer in digital form under clock C.
 
4. In box D, circle enough coins to make 7 cents.
 
5. In box 3, underline the amount of money Jane would have if she started with 10 cents and
spent 4 cents.
 
6. How much money would you have if you found these coins: 2 dimes, 1 nickel and 3 pennies?
   Write your answer by letter F.
 
7. Jose has 2 quarters and 2 dimes. Can he buy a treat that costs 75 cents?
   Write yes or no next to letter G.
 
8. Look at the lines by letter H. Circle the one that is 2 inches long.
 
9. Near the top of the space marked I, draw a horizontal line that is 8 cm long.
 
10. Under that line, draw a rectangle that is 6cm wide and 4 cm high. Put an X inside the rectangle
    on the spot that is 1 cm above the bottom of the rectangle and 1 cm away from the left-hand
    side of the rectangle.
 
The following activities are just extra things to do with your children.
 
Time:
1. Using classroom clocks with movable arms, have students practice setting the hands for times
   You give them orally. Start with hours, then half hours.
 
2 (I am skipping this one because it will not work for us)
 
3. Using  the clock on the wall, Throughout the day do some oral clock "math."
   Ask questons such as, "If it's 1 o'clock now, what time will it be in 1 hour?" "2 hours?"
   "What time was it 1 hour ago?"  "3 hours ago?"
 
Money:
 
1. Go over values of different coins. Practice finding coin sums using play or real coins. Do a lot
   of oral work; for example, "Show me 2 coins that make 6 cents."  "Show me w coins that
make 25 cents." "how much is 1 nickel, 1 dime and 2 pennies?"
 
2. Have a classroom store. Let students practice buying, selling and making change with play
   money for small classroom supplies, grocery items, etc.
 
Measurement:
 
1, Hold up two or three objects. Ask which is longer, shorter.
 
2. Give students rulers that measure in inches. Ask them to find an item on or near  their desk
   that is 2 inches long, 5 inches long, etc. Repeat using centimeters. 
 
 
The following pages have to do with Fractions and they are the last for today
 
The childrens page  is as follows: A and B are big divided off space to draw something.
 C has three divided rectangeles. The first is divided in half lengthwize. The middle is 
   divided up in fifths going up and The last rectangle is divided in thirds lengthwise. It also   
  has three fractured circles. D is 6 baloon shaped head  with the eyes.
 
Here are the instructions with it:
 
1. Draw a square in space A. Shade in 1/2 of the square with your pencil Write  your name
    under the square.
2. In space B, draw 3 balls, Shade 1/3 of the balls with your pencil.
.3. Look at part C. Find the rectangle that's divided into fifths.
    Color in 2/5 of the rectangle. 
4. Find the circle in part C that's divided into fourths. Color in 3/4 of the circle
5. Find 2 shapes in part C. that are divided into thirds. Underline both shapes.
6. Look at the faces in part D. Give 4/6(2/3) of the faces smiles. Give 2/6 (1/3) of the faces smiles
7. Give 1/6 of the faces a large nose. Give 5/6 of the faces small noses.
8. Give 2/6(1/3) of the faces curly hair.
9. Put hats on 3/6(1/2) of the faces.
10. Add ears to 5/6 of the faces
