Wordless Wednesday- not quite

studio 073

I am not good at Wordless Wednesday. I always want to say something about my pic.

Anyway…this week we have been working on our new science curriculum, My Pals are Here by Singapore Science.  I wasn’t sure if the kids would enjoy this program or not, but they seem to really like it, and it seems to do a good job at teaching scientific concepts. The curriculum also succeeds at linking the ideas and concepts being taught. This is one of the things I like best about this program, it seems to try to engage the student in making connections and to get the student thinking at a higher level.

The level we are using this year is 5/6, and the book we are working on now is Cycles. This week we studied the flower, and it’s life cycle. The kids enjoyed picking various flowers and dissecting them, looking for all the parts that make up a flower. It was actually a fun little project, and it got the kids outside, closely examining nature.

Check out the curriculum and let me know what you think!

  1. I really like the Singapore math- I’ve never tried the science. It sounds like it is just as good as the math.
