Our RRSP unit reviewed the letter K, number 13, and sight word "your". Our memory verse was, "Keep your tongue from evil." Psalm 34:13. I remembered my post last week and tried to do more hands on activities this week with Mackenzie and for the first time in several weeks, we actually did school 3 times! It made for a great school week and we both loved it. (I also took pictures of 90% of what we did, so beware...)
Last weekend we put up the camping tent in the playroom, so for two of the school days we had school in the entry way, where our table and chairs were temporarily placed. I think the change of scenery helped make it more fun.
She colored her verse...one color, quite scribbley (is that a word?), but she didn't complain, so I'll take it. ;)
She loves using the magnets. One of these days I'll buy magnets that actually match the size of the circles on her page, but until then, she's content with all of the different sizes. Who knew stuff from grad school 8 years ago would still be useful?!
Confessions of a homeschooler, we worked a color puzzle about kites and rolled a die/used a key to create a kite.
Our extra unit that I incorporated this week was about spring and rain. This was perfect since it rained on 2 of our school days!
She loves these roll and graph activities from 2 teaching mommies. This graph had a cloud, rain cloud, rain, lightning, tornado and rainbow. The other graph we did on Friday was about spring time.
Our little Monkeys. In this picture she had already sorted smallest to biggest and I asked her to sort biggest to smallest. The first thing she did was switch the two end pieces, so this is her now switching to of the other pieces. She's getting much better about just seeing the sizes as opposed to checking them beside each other every time before putting them in order.
