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.

4th day of Summer Classes

Hello Folks:
 
June 6 is our next Calendar Date to present for learning this summer. The birthdays are given as follows:
 
1755 Nathan Hale, American patriot hanged by the British as a spy
 
1911 Verna AArdema, children's author
 
Book (1)says in "Animal ways-Celebrate Verna Aardem's birthday by reading aloud Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears. Then invite the children to create their own stories explaining why other kinds of animals behave the way they do. Have them illustrate their work.

Day 3 of Summer Lessons

Dear Folks:
 
June's Project of the Month is Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Chart. Grandma is going to ask you to
 do it a little different than what Book (1) has asked for it.
Grandma wants the children to think of all kinds of Fruits and Vegetables to list on a chart. Then
I want them to record which ones are the favorites of each person in your family. Then I want them
to record the ones each of you dislike the most. Then I want to find out about each one that is:

Day 1 of the Summer Session

Dear Folks:
Apparently Grandma was trying to get up to May 24 of the Calendar History, Book (1 ). However I guess I did not catch May 23 which is just as well. Therefore, I will cover it now.
 
The First birthday on May 23 is in 1707 when Carolus Linnaeus, Swedish botanist and founder of taxonomy, was born.
 Next in 1734, Dr. Franz Mesmer, German physician who developed a treatment called Mesmerism, which is the basis of the word mesmerize, was born.
 In 1824 Ambrose Everett Burnside, American Civil War general whose whiskers on the side of his face were called Burnsides and later sideburns, was born.

Summer Introduction

Dear Folks:
     Here are the beginning of the summer lessons I promised you. I am sorry it has taken me so long to get them started. I am having my share of problems this summer. Grandma is at the point she felt you better be told straight that she feels the public schools would have been better to have left the classes running later into June and start after Labor Day. She feels these kinds of things are easier on the children. That it does not make sense and makes things stressful.

Day 177

Good Morning Folks! On this blog Grandma will put October activities for the 1800's and 1900' on this blog.
 
"Confounded collectors: Tell your (children) these unusual words for collectors of different things: deltiologist (postcards), numismatist (coins), comiconomen-caricaturist (funny names of people, bibliophile (books). Have (the children) investigate the root words for these terms. Next, ask them what they collect. Is there a special term for people with those collections?

Day 176

Today Grandma will keep coving the time line until the last day of homeschooling time. However she realized there were some activities that were left behind in September and October that need to be given to you this week. Therefore, she will give them to you first. Next she will cover the rest of the Calendar history for the time line and calendars for May. Next she will go into the summer months in the Calendar history, give some more fun things to do for summer as we go along; cover her books used and Patricia's material; as well as some more on real estate investing.

Day 170

I Saw Jesus Coming On A White Horse
On April 9, 2010 I received a vision about Jesus coming as our Savior. All for Grandma's Place of Natural Learning Center.
Revelationis Grandma's favorite part of theBiblebecause it really gives us hope in the future that God loves us enough that he gives us eternity in a beautiful city and could make the world whatever he wanted it to be.

Day 167

Hello Folks! Grandma has two last books on South America to cover with you. The second one has Arpilleras to make and I obtained a film about them. So link toArpilleras Informationand make one yourself if you wish.
 
The first book to read is calledLLama and the Great Flood: A Folktale From Peruby Ellen Alexander,New York: Thomas Y Crowell, 1989 about the country Peru.
"Summary:
The llama warns his master of a forthcoming flood and saves the family by taking them to a high peak in the Andes Mountains.

Day 162

Another Day! Grandma is going to give you lessons out of Grandma's book(4) for a Book calledThe Gift of the Sacred Dayby Paul Gable (Macmillan 1980).
 
"Summary:This is a legendary telling of how the nomadic buffalo-hunters of the Great Plains acquired horses. According to the legend, the people were suffering because they couldn't travel fast enough to hunt down the buffalo herds, on which they depended for food. They had only dogs to pull their travoises, and in times of drought and famine even the dogs gave out.
