Every day I asked "O" to find China on the map, we also practiced what continent its on. He colored the map of China/flag. He also put a sticker of the Chinese flag on his passport. 

Panda Lapbook from Homeschool Share

For our study about China we went to the Toronto Zoo to see the Giant Pandas and Kimono Dragon


"O" wrote about his trip to the Toronto Zoo to see the Giant Pandas in his Handwriting with Out tears Journal Draw and write notebook
"O" narrated his story summary and I typed it up for him. Then he drew a picture of a duck using  Draw write now book 1

This idea came from Delightful learning

Story Summary

Counting and Colouring Ping's Family Worksheet

After "O" counted all the family members which came out to be 68 including Ping. I asked him using his Math U See blocks to make 68.

After making the number with the blocks I had him draw it out (6 tens and 8 units)



After watching a video of a duck swimming I asked "O" why don't the feathers of the duck get wet?. 

We found out that the ducks go through a process called preening. They cover themselves in oil before entering the water. 

"O" and I did an experiment to test this out. We covered one duck with oil and left the other one dry. "O" poured water on both duck and noticed that the water would roll off the duck covered in oil.

After completing our science experiment "O" worked on a worksheet from explaining in his own words what preening is and I wrote it out for him.
