Sara worked on a two-sided worksheet where she had to join the boats to the matching one that had the same answers. She didn´t quite see they were the same sums, just in reverse, at first, so I made her work out each sum until she also quickly got the idea! I encouraged her to keep answering the sums though, to help her maths.
Both of their next worksheets were a little silimar, working on halving things. The sheets were also about Hens, eggs and chicks! Which is good, as it shall help them with their business!
After working on Maths, I took the girls outside to look at a Tree. I got them to name as many parts as they could, but they only knew the roots and leaves! I then drew a picture and taught them all the parts, and I am going to get them new books so they can each copy it out and start to look at other objects. It´s a great way for them to remember and learn new words, mixed with a little science!
We also learnt the song "head, shoulders, knees and toes!" to find a fun way to work on remembering body parts!
I then wanted to work on enchancing the girl´s imagination and creativity. I told them that I was going to draw a head on a piece of paper, then fold it and Sara would draw some arms and then Judit would finish with the legs. It took a few goes for them to stop drawing humans and questioning why I wasn´t, but once they got hang of it they didn´t want to stop and started getting more creative! We had hearts instead of heads, and mermaid tails instead of legs! We are going to use these characters to play a silimar game in the future, only this time, instead of drawings we´re going to practice our writing and make a story with these characters!
One of our first tries!
