Kraken

In Norse mythology, the Kraken is a large beast of the sea. The myth probably originates from a giant squid spotted in the waters then it was written about and there were stories relayed through song, however it has in recent years become a part of pop culture, having been featured in several major motion pictures.

Finishing up Ocean Theme Week

Our first week of school has come to an end, and so ocean theme week is also ending. It has been interesting to see what LittleMan has responded best to (and worst to) this week. He liked the more independent activities that he could do alone and I could check his work later (like read/build/write and phonics/counting clothes clip cards). He loved daily name journal time- LOVED IT. He was not a fan of anything which required a lot of direction or instruction from me.

There were so many little activities and box lessons that I haven’t blogged about, really it is too much to include it all so I’m doing my best to include the favorite activities. Again, several of our activities have come from Homeschool Creations free ocean preschool printable pack.

Today we touched on addition using 5 fish shaped beads I had left over from a project.

First Day of School (and some ideas for Ocean Theme Unit)

LittleMan had his first day of school on Monday. We’re only a few days into it but so far so good. I half expected a tantrum or at least some defiance but it looks like he’s excited and mostly compliant, at least for now.

I had thought it would be fun if we dressed as zombies for the first day of school but LittleMan had other ideas.
