My DS is in grade 3 first year homeschooling the science is going to be the death of me. Its all about stable structures and functions of Mechanisms its telling me to read this certain poem in a "rap rhythem" then get him to snap his fingers to it. What does that mean??

Should I email his teacher I am working with or just suck it up and study it all more.

 

There is more just hard to type it all here...just seems kinda strange the way they worded it for this age.

I would youtube a few videos on whatever it is he is supposed to be learning. I'm sure once you get going on what he is learning, you'll figure out his homework. That does sound odd, though.

As far as the rap rhythm, it sounds like you are supposed to read it to a beat, and he is supposed to snap along. It doesn't have to be Snoop Dogg er Lion, lol, it just shouldn't be monotone. 8)

Lots of things are more fun and easier to memorize when put to a beat.

Aka make a rap song.out of it. Snapping includes touch so makes it multisensory learning.

Be silly, have fun with it.

 I would look it up first & if I still didn't understand it then I would contact the teacher about it.

Oh goodness LOL! That does seem a bit unusual. I would google/bing/youtube it and figure out some ideas on how to do that. Let your son help you with the research process. It will be a good learning process for both of you.
