RRSP: Letter H, 3, triangle, blue
This week we focused on the Letter H. If you are curious about the order we are going in, the intent is to start with the easiest letters to write and work toward the harder letters. Curves are harder, so we focus on the straight line letters first.
This is the PowerPoint presentation we do everyday. Mackenzie really likes to push the button to make it go to the next slide.
We do a lot of the same activities each week (collage, letter sort, letter maze...), but this week I supplemented our lessons with a themed unit - ballerinas. Since she loves ballerinas and just started dance, she really liked the theme.
This is a ballerina puzzle with numbers on the sides. You have to put the numbers in order to finish the puzzle. This first day, she needed my help, but on Friday, she had it completed by the time I finished fixing her a snack!
We'll continue the ballerinas and winter themes (from week one) this next week and then move onto Valentine's Day the week after.
She memorized her memory verse pretty quickly again this week and now she knows 3 verses! (And so do I!) Her other memorization that I've been impressed with is the months of the year song and pledges to the US and Texas flags. So good for only 3 weeks (9 days) of school!
