Art Lesson 4 - Tracing Using a Window
http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/02/diy-monday-celebrity-valentines-for-pals-.html
Suppose you wanted to trace a picture. The lady in the pictures above wanted to
trace a photo of a dog. What did she do? She taped the photo of that dog to a
bright sunny window. (This is important. The sun MUST be shining through the
window.) Then she held another paper on top of it. Then she traced the dog onto
that paper.
That sounds easy, right?
I want you to try doing that. On the next page there is a star pattern. Tape the
star pattern to a sunny window and then trace it onto a new piece of paper.

Art Lesson 6 - Leaf Collage
Sample collage from the 2-19-2013 entry of:
http://artistsjournal.wordpress.com/page/2/
A collage is a kind of art where you take a bunch of
different pictures and glue them to a paper (or other kind
of backing).
Trace leaves and then cut them out. (Or there are leaf
patterns on the next pages if you do not feel like tracing.)
Color each leaf. Then make a leaf collage with your leaves.

Grammar Lesson 7 - Find the Nouns
Find the nouns. Underline
or circle them.
(1) The brother and sister
went to the park.
(3 nouns)
(2) They wanted to play
on the playground.
(1 noun)
(3) The sister loved to go on the slide. (2 nouns)
(4) The brother liked to play on the swing. (2 nouns)
(5) Sometimes mom would give her children bread. (3 nouns)
(6) Then they would feed the ducks that lived on the pond. (2 nouns)
(7) When they were done, they all went home. (1 noun)

Grammar Lesson 8 - One or More Than One?
The way a noun is written tells you more information about the word. For example,
just by looking at a noun you can tell if it is talking about one thing or more than
one thing. Look at the picture. Can you tell the trick?
When you think you know the trick try the activity below. Read each word and
decide if it is talking about one thing or more than one thing. Write the word "one"
on the line if the word is talking about one thing. Write the word "more" on the
line if it is talking about more than one thing.
(1) balloon ____________________ (6) glasses ____________________
(2) monkey ____________________ (7) spoon ____________________
(3) water ____________________ (8) yarn ____________________
(4) dolls ____________________ (9) cars ____________________
(5) cans ____________________ (10) house ____________________
Tell me. How do you know when a word is talking about one thing or more than one
thing? What is the trick?
______________________________________________________________
______________________________________________________________
Name: ___________________________________ Date: ______________
Grammar Lesson 9 - Singular or Plural?
When there is one of a thing, we say that word is singular. When there is more
than one of a thing, we say that word is plural. The word "tree" is singular because
it tells you about one thing. The word "trees" is plural because it tells you about
more than one thing.
Look at each picture. Tell if the picture shows you a singular noun or a plural noun.

Name: ___________________________________ Date: ______________
Grammar Lesson 10 - Singular and Plural
Remember: Singular nouns tell about one thing. Plural
nouns tell about more than one thing.
Look at the underlined noun in each sentence. Decide if
that noun is singular or plural. Write S on the line if it
is singular. Write P on the line if it is plural. Also, tell
if it is a person, place or thing.
(1) Sara likes to help her mom in the kitchen. __________ O person
O place
O thing
(2) Sometimes they make cookies together. __________ O person

(3) Mom puts the eggs in the bowl and Sara stirs
them.

Math Lesson 6 - Expanded Form 3
Suppose you had the number 7,268.
7 , 2 6 8
Millions Hundred
Thousands
Ten
Thousands
Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones
7,268 in expanded form would look like this: 7,000 + 200 + 60 + 8.
Why does it look like that? Well, close your eyes and listen to me say the number
slowly.
Seven thousand.
Two hundred.
Sixty.
Eight.
Open your eyes. Did you hear me say 7,000? Did you hear me say 200? Did you
hear me say 60? Did you hear me say 8? That's one reason why we write 7,000 +
200 + 60 + 8... because 7,268 IS the same as 7,000 + 200 + 60 + 8. It even sounds
the same.

Math Lesson 8 - Expanded Form 4
Suppose you had the number 82,926.
8 2 , 9 2 6
Millions Hundred
Thousands
Ten
Thousands
Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones
82,926 in expanded form would look like this: 80,000 + 2,000 + 900 + 20 + 6.
Why does it look like that?
Let's start with the 8 in the ten thousands place. How many numbers come after
that 8? (4, right?) Imagine turning all those 4s into 0s.
82,926
8 2 , 9 2 6
Millions Hundred
Thousands
Ten
Thousands
Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones
Here's another way you can think about it:
Numbers in the one's place have no spaces after them, so we
don't add any zeroes. So 6 is just six.
6 no zeroes
Numbers in the ten's place have one space after them, so we
add one zero. So 2 becomes 20.
20 one zero
Numbers in the hundred's place have two spaces after them,
so we add two zeroes. So 9 becomes 900.
900 two zeroes
Numbers in the thousand's place have three spaces after
them, so we add three zeroes. So 2 becomes 2,000. (Don't
forget your comma!)
2,000 three zeroes
Numbers in the ten thousand's place have four spaces after
them, so we add four zeroes. So 8 becomes 80,000. (Where
does your comma go?)
80,000 four zeroes
Write these numbers in expanded form:

Math Lesson 10 - Expanded Form 6
How do you write a number in expanded form if there is a zero in one of the
places?
4 0 , 2 1 3
Millions Hundred
Thousands
Ten
Thousands
Thousands Hundreds Tens Ones
Well, you could show the zero in your expanded form or you could ignore it.
For example, if you wrote 40,213 in expanded form and showed the zero, it would
look like this:
40,000 + 0 + 200 + 10 + 3
If you decided to ignore the zero, it would look like this:
40,000 + 200 + 10 + 3
Which seems easier to you? Either way you want to write it is okay.

Reading Lesson 6 - Johnny and the Three Goats
A Norse Tale
Now you shall hear! Once there was a boy named Johnny,
and he had three goats. All day long those goats leaped
and pranced and skipped and climbed way up on the top of
a hill, but every night Johnny went to fetch them and drove
them home. One evening the frisky things leaped out of the road and
over a fence and into a turnip-field, and, try as he would, Johnny could not get
them to come out again. There they were and there they stayed. Then the boy sat
down on the hillside and cried and cried and cried. As he sat there a Hare came
along.
"Why do you cry?" asked the Hare.
"I cry because I can't get the goats out of the turnip
field," answered Johnny.
"I'll get the goats out of the turnip field," said the Hare.
So he tried and he tried, but the goats would not come.
Then the Hare sat down beside Johnny and began to cry,
too.
Along came a fox.
"Why do you cry?" asked the fox.
"The boy cries because he cannot get the goats
out of the turnip-field."
"I'll get the goats out of the turnip field,"
said the fox.
So the fox tried and he tried and he tried, but the goats would not come. Then the
fox sat down beside Johnny and the hare and began to cry, too.
Pretty soon along came a wolf.
"Why do you cry?" asked the wolf.
"I cry because the hare cries," said the fox, "and the hare cries because the boy
cries, and the boy cries because he can't get the goats out of the turnip field."
"I'll get the goats out of the turnip field," said the wolf. So he tried and he tried
and he tried and he tried, but the goats would not leave the field. So the wolf sat
down beside Johnny and the hare and the fox and began to cry, too.
After a little while a bee flew over the hill and saw them all sitting there crying
away for dear life, "Boo-hoo! Boo-hoo! Boo-hoo!"
"Why do you cry?" said the bee to the wolf.
"I cry because the fox cries, and the fox cries because the hare cries, and the
hare cries because the boy cries, and the boy cries because he can't get the goats
out of the turnip field."
"Much good it does to sit there and cry about it," said the Bee. "I'll get the goats
out of the turnip field."
So the fox tried and he tried and he tried, but the goats would not come. Then the
fox sat down beside Johnny and the hare and began to cry, too.
Pretty soon along came a wolf.
"Why do you cry?" asked the wolf.
"I cry because the hare cries," said the fox, "and the hare cries because the boy
cries, and the boy cries because he can't get the goats out of the turnip field."
"I'll get the goats out of the turnip field," said the wolf. So he tried and he tried
and he tried and he tried, but the goats would not leave the field. So the wolf sat
down beside Johnny and the hare and the fox and began to cry, too.
After a little while a bee flew over the hill and saw them all sitting there crying
away for dear life, "Boo-hoo! Boo-hoo! Boo-hoo!"
"Why do you cry?" said the bee to the wolf.
"I cry because the fox cries, and the fox cries because the hare cries, and the
hare cries because the boy cries, and the boy cries because he can't get the goats
out of the turnip field."
"Much good it does to sit there and cry about it," said the Bee. "I'll get the goats
out of the turnip field."
So the fox tried and he tried and he tried, but the goats would not come. Then the
fox sat down beside Johnny and the hare and began to cry, too.
Pretty soon along came a wolf.
"Why do you cry?" asked the wolf.
"I cry because the hare cries," said the fox, "and the hare cries because the boy
cries, and the boy cries because he can't get the goats out of the turnip field."
"I'll get the goats out of the turnip field," said the wolf. So he tried and he tried
and he tried and he tried, but the goats would not leave the field. So the wolf sat
down beside Johnny and the hare and the fox and began to cry, too.
After a little while a bee flew over the hill and saw them all sitting there crying
away for dear life, "Boo-hoo! Boo-hoo! Boo-hoo!"
"Why do you cry?" said the bee to the wolf.
"I cry because the fox cries, and the fox cries because the hare cries, and the
hare cries because the boy cries, and the boy cries because he can't get the goats
out of the turnip field."
"Much good it does to sit there and cry about it," said the Bee. "I'll get the goats
out of the turnip field."
Then the great big wolf, and the great big fox, and the great big hare, and the
great big boy all stopped boo-hooing a moment to poke fun at the tiny bee.
"You get the goats out of the turnip field, indeed, when we could not! That's a
joke! Ho, ho! Ridiculous little creature!"
But the tiny bee flew away into the turnip field and lit square in the ear of one of
the goats, and all he did was say, "Buzz-z-z. Buzz-z-z. Buz-z-z."
And out ran the goats, every one!

Reading Lesson 7 - The Truant
James Brown was ten years old when his parents sent him to school. It was not far
from his home, and therefore they sent him by himself.
But, instead of going to school, he was in the habit of playing truant. He would go
into the fields, or spend his time with idle boys.
But this was not all. When he went home, he would falsely tell his mother that he
had been to school, and had said his lessons very well.
One fine morning, his mother told James to make haste home from school, for she
wished, after he had come back, to take him to his aunt's.
But, instead of minding her, he went off to the water, where there were some
boats. There he met plenty of idle boys.
Some of these boys found
that James had money,
which his aunt had given him;
and he was led by them to
hire a boat, and to go with
them upon the water.
Little did James think of
the danger into which he
was running. Soon the wind
began to blow, and none of
them knew how to manage
the boat.
For some time, they struggled against the wind and the tide. At last, they became
so tired that they could row no longer.
A large wave upset the boat, and they were all thrown into the water. Think of
James Brown, the truant, at this time!
He was far from home, known by no one. His parents were ignorant of his danger.
He was struggling in the water, on the point of being drowned.
Some men, however, saw the boys, and went out to them in a boat. They reached
them just in time to save them from a watery grave.
They were taken into a house, where their clothes were dried. After a while, they
were sent home to their parents.
James was very sorry for his conduct, and he was never known to be guilty of the
same thing again.
He became regular at school, learned to attend to his books, and, above all, to obey
his parents perfectly.
Answer the questions.

(2) What happened to James in the middle of the story? ___________________

Lesson 6 - Pollinators
To make a seed, pollen has to make its way
down the carpel to the ovaries of the plant,
where the eggs are. This is called pollination.
When a plant gets pollinated a seed can begin
to grow.
Animals such as bats, bees, wasps, beetles,
birds, butterflies, flies, moths, and even
mosquitoes help to pollinate plants.
When these pollinators go to suck up the
nectar from a flower, they brush against the
anthers and get pollen stuck on their bodies.
When they land on that flower or another flower, the pollen will rub off their
bodies onto the pistil. If the pollen ends up near the opening at the top of the
pistil, the pollen will make its way down the pistil to the egg. When the egg and the
pollen meet, a seed is formed.

Social Studies Lesson 6 - St. Meryn's Islands
Cut out the answers on the other sheet of paper to fill in the blanks. Glue your
answers in the correct place.
Here are St. Meryn's Islands. There are islands. The main island has
buildings - a and . There is also
something else special about this island. It has a coral .
http://neffj.people.cofc.edu/WWW/observatory/Pics/observatory2.gif
This is an observ-
atory much like the
one on St. Meryn's
Island. An observ-
atory is a room or a
building with a
giant telescope
that is so powerful
it can look far into
outer space. It is
used to see stars
and planets and
faraway galaxies.
The information we
get from using
these telescopes
helps us to make
star charts, like
the one below.
For a larger view of this star chart see: http://www.latoro.com/wallpapers/space/17800-desktop-wallpapers-star-map.jpg
http://www.coralsea.net/coral08.jpg
The picture at the top is a picture of coral. It looks like a great big colorful plant,
but it's not. It's actually lots and lots if very tiny animals. If you look very close,
you can see that corals have tiny tentacle arms that they use to capture food and
sweep that food into their mouths.

Social Studies Lesson 7 - Colin the Astronomer
Picture 11973405: http://www.123rf.com/clipart-vector/telescope.html
When Colin was 8
years old, his
grandfather, St.
Meryn, gave him his
first telescope. Colin
couldn't believe it.
His grandfather had
the biggest telescope
he had ever seen over
at the observatory on
St. Meryn's Island.
And now Colin had his
very own telescope,
too. It was smaller
than his grand-
father's telescope,
but that didn't
matter. Colin loved
it. And every night
he would go out to
observe the stars and
planets.
http://www.perezmedia.net/beltofvenus/archives/images/2005/img2005013002_CanisMajor.jpglin
Colin's favorite star was a star called Sirius. (Some people called it the "Dog Star".)
Sirius was also the easiest to find because it is the brightest star in the sky. Around
Sirius were other stars. And if you traced the stars like a dot-to-dot, you could make a
constellation that looked kind of like a dog. (Turn the paper sideways and see for
yourself.) A constellation is a group of stars. And the constellation that looked like a dog
was called Canis Major.
Colin's grandfather, St. Meryn, taught him to find other constellations, too. For example,
Colin liked to find the Big Dipper and the Little Dipper in the night sky. Can you see those
constellations in the picture on the left?

Colin's grandfather died when he was only 16. Colin was very sad, but he promised himself
that, when he grew up, he would become an astronomer just like his grandfather. (An
astronomer is a person who studies the stars and planets and galaxies.) And that is just
what he did. Colin became an astronomer and was hired as the new caretaker of St.
Meryn's Observatory, an observatory that was named after his grandfather.

Social Studies Lesson 8 - Gretchen the Teacher
Picture 13459021: http://www.123rf.com/clipart-vector/teacher.html
Gretchen grew up in a great big
city where 100,000 other people
lived. She did not like living in a
big city very much. She thought
there were too many people and
she did not like the sound of cars.
She was always a girl that liked
working in her garden and taking
walks with her dog. She liked
looking at the stars at night, but
some nights it was too hard to
see the stars because the city
lights made the stars hard to see.
Still, she didn't have much of a choice. She had to live in the city when she was little
because that was where her parents lived. And when she got big she had to live there
because she was going to college to learn to be a teacher and that was where her college
was.
But when she was done with college, she found the tiny island called Lady Anne. It was
quiet and peaceful, just like she liked and there were no noisy cars. There weren't any
city light either, so Gretchen could see the stars at night. It was amazing how many stars
there were!
Picture 12349556: www.123rf.com/clipart-vector/farmer.html
She met a lady named Miss Margie, who had a
small farm on the island. Miss Margie liked dogs
and she had an extra bedroom that Gretchen
could sleep in, so Gretchen and her dog went to
live at Miss Margie's house.
Every day Gretchen would walk down the dirt
path, cross the bridge, and then go to the school
house on the West Island. She had seven
students - Mr. Connor's five kids and Mr.
George's two daughters. They were all
different ages so Gretchen had to teach a lot of
different things. Little Grace was only five and
she had to learn the alphabet. Candace was six;
she was starting to read big girl books. Then
there were three kids that were at third grade
level and they were learning how to write in
cursive and how to multiply numbers. And then
there was Michael, who was in fifth grade and
Helen, who was in sixth grade. And all these
kids were together in one class and Gretchen
had to teach them all!
Gretchen liked the challenge though. She liked that she got to teach so many things. And
she liked that she didn't have to teach the way regular teachers had to teach in the big
cities. Sometimes she took her dog to school with her. You could never do that in the big
city! Sometimes, when it was a really nice day, she would teach her class outside instead
of in the classroom. You weren't supposed to do that either, at least not in a big city;
there were so many rules in big cities.
Sometimes she even taught at nighttime. Colin, who was the caretaker of St. Meryn's
Observatory, would come to St. Anne's Island once in a while and he and Gretchen would
show the children the stars and help them to find constellations. He even let the kids look
through the telescope his grandfather gave him when he was just a little boy. Imagine
that - teaching school at nighttime!
After school and on the weekends, Gretchen liked to help Miss Margie work on her farm.
She pulled weeds and watered plants and picked fruits and vegetables.
How wonderful a life Gretchen had! She was so glad that she moved to St. Anne's.

Social Studies Lesson 9 - George and Karen, the Scuba Divers
Picture 15329291: http://www.123rf.com/
Some people scuba dive because they like to explore reefs or see fish and other water
creatures up close. Other people scuba dive because they like to discover things, like
caves or ship wrecks. George and Karen were fortunate. Living on St. Anne's Island let
them do both, because they lived on an island in a lake that had a beautiful coral reef,
mysterious caves, and even old sunken boats.
Once, Colin the astronomer, told them an old story he heard from
his grandfather, St. Meryn. St. Meryn said that, one night when
he was just a boy, the fog had been so thick on Lake Tauani that
a boat had gotten off course and hit the jagged rocks near the
beach on the north end of the lake and had sunk.
George and Karen had been very excited when they heard that story. They wanted to find
that boat very badly. They searched and they searched, and finally they found it! They
took lots of pictures of the wreck and some people liked their pictures so much that they
printed them in a magazine!
http://alfoart.com/images/u_water%20(6).jpg
Sometimes George and Karen went scuba diving by themselves, but not always. They had
to make a living, too. Making a living means making money so that you can buy the things
you need, like food and clothes. To make a living, George and Karen had a scuba diving
class on weekends and taught other people how to scuba dive. Mostly grown ups took their
class, but sometimes kids wanted to learn, too. Anyone who was eight-years-old or older
was allowed to take their class. Another way they made money was by selling some of
their underwater pictures that they took of fishes and corals and dark caves and, of
coarse, the wonderful shipwreck.
George and Karen had two daughters. Grace was five and she was too young to learn how
to scuba dive, but she was learning how to swim and she was getting to be pretty good at
it. Helen, however, was eleven. She was a good swimmer and George and Karen had taught
her how to scuba dive three years ago. She liked to go with her parents whenever she had
the time, which wasn't a lot because she had to go to school and do her homework. But
when she had time she went and sometimes they let her help them teach their scuba class.
