Hi it’s me Satori,

I don’t like my daddys job I won’t get that job!  He havto travle all the time on air planes, Mexico is so hot!

When he leaves infront of me i’m hart broken. I just want to tell you don’t get that job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just wanted to share some of Satori’s free writes from the week. A few times this week I’ve been waking up to a new State Capital Chart where she writes the states and their capitals in a list. She knows them better than I do now. She also loves creative writing. A few days ago we started reading this excellent book The Birchbark House by Louise Erdrich and we’ve both fell in love. It’s about a 7 year old Ojibwa girl, Omakayas, living on Madeline Island in 1847. This is particularly meaningful to me, as I’m half Ojibwa (Satori is 1/4) and I’ve been to Madeline Island.

Satori is so taken with the book she talked all night about writing her own Birchbark House book. She said she’d make it a bit different though, so her book is about Esacoma and her Burchbark House!

I haven’t read her whole book yet, but I was impressed. She’s been taking everything she’s learning and meshing them all into her book. We’ve been learning about early American History, geography, and of course, The Birchbark House.

 

In the actual story, Omakayas named her baby brother Chickadee. Well here he gets named Carloee.

The book is several pages long, and on the last page, she even included a pronunciation chart for the harder-to-pronounce names! 🙂

Another book she wrote this week is The Alive States of America. This is a combo of both books Scrambled States of America and The Little Man in the Map.

Of course it starts out with Kansas and some states being upset for being in the middle of nowhere.

Party time when all the states decide to scramble themselves! Anyone with the Scrambled States book will recognize these little state characters.

 

I’ve known about the free math resource – Khan Academy for a few years now, but just this month I checked it out again. Right away I noticed the tagline said over 38 million lessons delivered, and each time I refreshed the page, that number was updated. Today, the site hit over 40 million lessons. A few million lessons served in just a few weeks, wow!

This is an ASTOUNDING, AMAZING, ASTONISHING resource of 2000+ 10-minute (give-or-take) videos, mostly on math, but also on science and much more! They are easy to learn from and did I mention free?

The thing that caught my attention this month was that you can now login with your Google or Facebook ID and it will track your participation with Energy Points. You can earn points and badges from watching videos and doing your exercises.

I went through all the easiest Arithmetic videos and exercises and now almost done with Pre-Algebra. I will for sure be using this as a math and science supplement for Satori!

I could take all my own screenshots to show you, but it’s best if you just watch through his explanation video. I’m not sure this YouTube video will fit within my blog, if it doesn’t all show, just head here:

Bill Gates is a huge fan – he uses Khan Academy for himself and his children. Khan Academy was also one of the first winners of the Google $10 million dollar award for Project 10^100, a global search for ideas that would “help the world the most”. What did Sal do with his $2 million from that? He turned right around and put that toward translating his videos into other languages, so even more of the world could benefit from his videos. Sal now works on Khan Academy full-time and has added a staff of six.

No matter if you homeschool, afterschool, or don’t even have children, you can use Khan Academy for yourself and/or your children to get up to speed on math. Since I’ve been watching these videos, I’ve become very psyched about math. I think you’ll see a big math focus in our household this spring.

Salman Khan is my hero!
