Today was a big school day for the littles...
really not a day goes by that they don't beg to do school.
Some days are just better than others.
I really don't spend a lot of time planning things to do so just think them up when we're sitting together.
SJ knows all her letters, sounds, knows how to sound out words, and understands how reading works
I began introducing a new little book last week and another today.
It teaches two new words and I have her search for them in a book we read together~ like Pinkalicious.
She found all four of her words!
She was VERY proud of herself!
We worked on adding letters to our cap collection and practiced matching them.
WP handed them to SJ and she matched them saying letter, sound, and something that starts with that letter.
I also made a clothespin letter game and she matched letter to cards to spell her words~ LOVED it!
Then it was on to a little math.
Made a number matching game with the caps and WP chose our sticks game again.
SJ rolled a die and built a tower for each number rolled~ great city!
As an extension to the little book 'What Is It?' SJ learned today,
she and I made a little book of her own using the MANY stickers we have collected from dr visits this year.
I think this is her absolute favorite thing to do~ make books.
I encourage her to read it as many times as she can then sticking a sticker on the back for good reading~ trying to fill the back full! :)
Here are her two videos she wanted shot today so she could hear herself~
What Is It?
It Is ...
About the time I had just finished making lunches, my phone rang... nurse said EK was ill.
We dropped everything to pick her up and she has been resting and watching Netflix all afternoon.
Not sure what's going on other than allergies and a fever.
She's asking for a few games of her own... guess I better get thinking. :)
