A New Planet

From Daddy: I asked him this morning what was his favorite part of last night’s Open House at school.

Tree art

Tree art — not art displayed at Open House, but worth sharing!

He answered that his favorite part was playing ball in the schoolyard (just before Open House began). I told him that my favorite part was when he reading to Ngen-Ngen and Yeah-Yeah. Then he changed his mind: His favorite part was playing that penny game, that kind of coin bingo.

Homework - coin

He’s learning/learned about coins and money. Here’s some homework.

Also, last night, I spoke with one of my friends who is the parent of a first-grader at school. He said that homework was about half an hour each night, Monday through Thursday. We didn’t know if the after-school program (for which we submitted re-enrollment yesterday morning) provided time for homework. Some things to explore…

Homework - rabbit clock

He has also learned about time. He made this and the carrots move. This was not displayed during Open House.

Homework - time 1

He’s learning about digital time and analog time.

Homework - time 2

He’s also learned to speak the time in Cantonese.

Homework - clocks

More homework about time. This projected was pasted on construction paper.

Wednesday

Remember that Tuesday was Earth Day…

2014 03 26 Homework - Ways to Conserve

Learning ways to conserve, March 26, 2014

…and we biked to the school garden to get a prize.

Homework - earthworm

A homework item–it looks like a picture of an earthworm.

Homework - snail

Speaking of creepy crawlies, in his homework he also wrote and drew a snail, just like at Open House last night.

On Wednesday, he told me in the car that we need to keep our house clean otherwise we need to move to a new house and if there were no more houses that we’d have to move to another planet. I think that this was an Earth Day parable that he may have learned somewhere.
