Modified History

Modified History

My student made the game from the Fur Traders book in the Robert Livesey History Series. These books are full of activities.  Neat activities. 

Also pictured is a Donna Ward book that keeps it simple and provides short reading passages with questions.

  
   

Indoor Recess

A rainy day and an indoor recess provides us an opportunity to try out the lift!

Cursive App

This is my attempt to generalize a skill. ‘Generalize’ is when a learned skill is used in different situations. In this case I worry that improving cursive on an iPad does not necessarily translate to the ability to do neater cursive on paper. Here is my solution. The app is Intro to Cursive from Montessorium. The student traces a letter with a stylus on the iPad then must write the same letter on a cue card. This seems to be far less overwhelming then simply giving the student a cursive worksheet (although I am hoping we can work up to that). Keep generalization in mind when teaching a new skill.
