We are in our 3rd and final year of doing our Beyond Co-op. What a fun couple of years we have had and I look forward to even more fun together this year! We are in Volume 3 this year and our first book is The Cricket in Times Square. We covered topics in the first 3 chapters in this co-op.
We started out learning about New York City. Each student was given a card with a picture of a prominent landmark in Manhattan.
They discussed the artist and the author. They then looked at some of the pictures from the book. Later they chose one of the favorites and drew a copy to include in their lap book.
There was also a discussion about mammals, rodents and insects.
it here. They filled out a number of the books from the things that they had learned (NY, CT, Mass Transit, Rodents and more).
