Co-op Update - September 11, 2012
I'm back! I've been gone from this blog for some time, but now I am back. I will be posting about our year last year, along with many other topics. It was quite the year! This year I am running a co-op at my house which I will post more about in the coming weeks. For now, this post is mainly for the parents of the children in my group. If gives them a chance to see what we did during our day. So here we go.... While we waited for one of our friends to arrive, the kids worked on a lego challenge. This was a good ice breaker and way to start the day. The kids didn't need much building time so we jumped right in and went to the table. As a group we wrote some Mad Libs. I chose one Mad Lib story and on a piece of paper, they had to write down their ideas for the different parts of speech presented in the story. We started with all of the nouns first, then the adjectives, etc... Once everyone had all of their 16 parts of speech chosen for the given story I inserted the words and read the stories aloud. This was a hoot and the kids really seemed to enjoy it.
