“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” ― Aristotle

Hit the Deck!

on January 13, 2015

Division 10 is loving the adventures of the high seas. The mateys have completed the initial training and are now joining Jack and Annie on their adventure, em>Pirates Before Noon. A few of the crew are unsure of wether the life of a pirate is for them. Learning that life aboard a pirate ship involved eating maggot ridden tack bread not to mention possible amputation of limbs dulled the shine of adventure.

This and next week we are working on mapping skills. We’ve mapped the class and will learn a math game called Treasure Hunt.

2015/01/img_0189.jpg In gym I created a pirate ship game where the class needs to respond to my commands. I have a varied list including running to locations in the gym: north, south, east, west, starboard, port side, bow, & stern. One action you may like to deploy at home is to state, “The captain is coming!” It is quite remarkable how quickly your crewman will salute while saying “Aye aye captain!”

This week the Mystery Question is tricky. The class needs to manipulate shapes to determine what other shapes can be created. We discuss the attributes such as curved lines, quantity of straight lines, & if it has any corners


I am continuing to teach the class The Continent Song

Ms. Colleen is continuing to work and create with the class a song called The Pirates on the Ship. It is sung to the tune of the Wheels on the Bus.
