This week's work was way less formal than usual. We did many more play and craft activities.
Hands-on activities (with pictures) are featured in our Tot-School updates every Sunday.
We also read the story of Joseph in several other books.
Memory Work: "Be kind to each other."
He's breezing through the short vowel lessons, but I'm including lots of repetition. I want to make sure that his short-vowel blending skills are firmly solidified before moving on (that was my issue with 100 Easy Lessons).
Finished Nn pages... he loves these, but I may or may not use Book C. I'm still on the fence about this.
He also read his first book to me only hours afte I posted last week (The First Bob Book, Mat). I was a super-proud mama! He was so happy. He has since read the second book, Sam, as well as a few other short-vowel readers.
Starfall.com - he was disinterested (I think it's boring him. Perhaps a break will make it seem fresh and new at a later date).
Some of this week's read-alouds can be found here.
- Fine Motor: basic tracing sheets (I made those by simply using a highlighter to draw whatever I wanted him to trace.)
I'm making notes of any ideas from the remaining lessons in this manual that I may want to try before gifting this to a good online friend of ours.
Manipulative Activities: Number Puzzles, measurements and comparisons using small dowels of graduated lengths, multi-link cubes, grid games
