We just planned an easy class this week to get back into the co-op routine. We spent some time making journal pages about things we did over the break. We added plastic sleeves to our journals so that we could put in the new pages. The children enjoyed looking over their journals.
For the second half of the hour we brought out the poster we have been coloring and worked on it together while Miss Naomi read the book “Ruby’s Wish”. The book was about Chinese culture about 100 years ago. It talked about a girl who wanted to go to university instead of getting married right away at a time when most girls did not get opportunities for education. It started a discussion about other cultures that was very interesting and sparked some ideas for our spring session.
This week we will have a special class learning about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in anticipation of the up coming holiday.
