STEAM Kids – Hands-on Projects for Kids

STEAM Kids is an E-book dedicated to over 50 science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics hands-on projects for kids. I printed out and bound the e-book for the kids to page through with me. The excitement on their faces was infectious! They are super excited to work their way though this book.
STEAM Kids
STEAM Kids is all about inspiring our next generation of inventors, innovators and leaders to question like a scientist, design like a technologist, build like an engineer, create like an artist, deduce like a mathematician and play like a kid.

Lesson plans for the week

It has been a while since I’ve posted our lesson plans. I’ve recently had quite a few people (non-homeschoolers) ask what work we cover on a daily basis. So I decided that I’d post the kidlets’ lesson plans for the week.

Koko’s lesson plans for the week:
The highlighted boxes indicate work that is NOT included in our Grade R Curriculum. Grade R is South Africa’s version of Kindergarten.

Planning for the rest of Gr 2

We will be going away to visit my mother and step father on their Game Farm for two weeks at the end of November/early December and I want to get all my planning done as we will still be doing school while the we are there, the bare necessities reading, maths and bible studies, so that we don’t fall behind my strict schedule. Here is my planning for the rest of the school year, including my planning for the time we are away. We will be completely finished with the Gr2 Curriculum with 14 days to spare. I’m very happy with the progress we have made this year so far.

We have three weeks left of our third school term of 2010. I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone by. Its been a very exciting year, with the 2010 FIFA Football World Cup here in South Africa to name just one. Here are my lesson plan outlines for the next three weeks. The last 2 weeks of the term are ouR assessment weeks. Noo will still do his reading and Theme of the Month work, but the focus of our day will be his assessments.
