Last week I posted about your new schedule and ideas for Mommy School. I had one little hiccup to start with and that is the printer. My printer, despite being a color printer, gets an attitude when asked to print more than one or two pages in color - the pages start to get a really odd discoloration and all kinds of streaks. I had uploaded them to a zip drive to print at an office store but never made it into town to do so. I printed the best I could and just did a few at a time :-)
I picked my ideas from over at 1+1+1=1 and started right out with the letter
Another page we did was a coloring page. I laminated it so we could re-use it but, washable markers don't work well on it. I may need to get some dry erase markers for him to use on these pages. I made up all kinds of tunes for "A is for Apple"
So, yes, we had some fun this week. I also enjoyed some play time with the munchkin as well as some book time with Nate. I really am enjoying this relaxed, yet set schedule and find it easier to get things done. One other thing I learned - I need to order our library books two weeks in advance, not just one week. I'm planning on finally getting are "a" books today so we can get busy on reading more books!
The weather didn't cooperate a whole lot so we haven't been outside; Wednesday was really nice but both boys have a pretty nasty cold so I didn't want to take them out in the cool air. Maybe next week!
Don't forget to play with your kids today!
