RRSP and M is for M&M
Our unit reviewed the letter M this past week. Our memory verse was 1 John 3:18 - My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in truth and in deed. The sight word was "my". She now knows 14 sight words (see, the, and, can, for, is, little, me, you, one, down, away, your and my) and I'm impressed that she remembers the words. She'll get confused a little with you/your and the/and, but for the most part she recognizes the other words. I try to point them out when we read books or when we are singing at church. Sometimes she thinks its cool to recognize the words, but other times, she doesn't want to "do that". Either way, I still take my chances and point them out.
We had a very low key week with only the letter collage craft and the memory verse craft. I think I have "summer fever" rather than spring fever and am not really into doing school, right now. This is one of the reasons why I only want to teach preschool to the girls. I don't think I could do full time preschool.
She colored her memory verse using a brand new box of crayons. There are a lot of oranges in a 16ct box...orange, yellow-orange, red-orange...is it that popular of a color?
Confessions of a Homeschooler, we had quite a few M&M activities! She put together M&M puzzles:
