First day of school today, and (not so much by coincidence), first day of Teddy Bear school. The kids set up the classroom:
I did an Instagram story of the boys going over their lesson plan, but I still haven't figured out how to embed/save those things. An interesting development was that the top bunk has become a "teacher's lounge", where one of the kids go while the other is teaching.
There was a roll call and then Zephyr did a math lesson where he asked various stuffed animals to do basic arithmetic. Notable: he asked them what 1 - 2 was, and he seemed to have an understanding about negative numbers from his coding work. Then he handed out imaginary pencils so the stuffed animals could do a writing assignment:
Then it was Lyric's turn to teach them science. He went into a diatribe about planting a seed.
Meanwhile, Zephyr sat in the teacher's lounge pretending to drink coffee.
But then it was time for actual school!
Back in this thing!
SELFGRADE: A-. It was pretty cool to see their lessons applied and in action.
