This will be another exciting month at the Co-op, we will learn about the Medieval time period.
In the blue room we will learn about this time period through very classic novels like The Three Musketeers, Robin hood, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and Beowulf.The children will have their own books to follow along as we read, learning to read left to right and up to down. They will practice their listen skills and deciphering real from make believe. We will continue to practice our letters and writing in our prince and princess diaries.
In the green room we are learning about the way people lived back then. The first week well will look at the way children lived and the games and toys they played. The second week we will learn about peasants, knights and noblemen. The third week we will learn all about castles and the fourth week we will learn about and prepare medieval cuisine. We will be working with and learning about money. We will also continue to work with our shapes, numbers and math.
In the red room we be learning about and making clothing, jewelry and accessories for week one. Heraldry and tournaments for week two. Dragons for week three and Wizards and magic for the fourth week. We will continue to work on our colors.
