Welcome back to week 3 round 2 of our school year. This week seemed to go the most smoothly . .well, Thursday was a little iffy but I can fix that in the future by not planning 5 cutting, gluing and coloring activities in one morning for 3 different kids. Wow. I couldn't keep up. We also did something fun every afternoon and I have found that really helps to diffuse the day by breaking up day. Even if it is only a 10 minute thing to do it gets all three boys sat down, and doing something totally different.
Here's are week in photos!
Confessions of a Homeschooler curriculum. He's also working on using a pencil vs. a marker for some of his worksheets.
Teachers Pay Teachers that includes the full color card with the poem as shown above, a black/white card to color with the poem and one without the poem. Such a simple resource to have when teaching numbers.
Confessions of a Homeschooler as well. Cutting skills are a must . .. he likes to cut tiny pieces and this week I had them glue the pieces onto the pattern worksheets. He enjoys that activity alot.
Toddler Approved to make nature plates. While the munchkin was napping, the boys and I walked around the yard and gathered things from nature that reminded us of fall. We picked sunflower petals, purple flowers, leaves from the willow tree and yellow/orange leaves from the neighbors tree, black eyed Susans and some weeds. Yes, weeds. That was not my choice.
I forgot to share this earlier - I mentioned my mom and picked up some fun stuff for the boys for school. Well, this is another item we just got out this past weekend.
That's our week! I'm still holding off on the daily notebooks. My thought now is to use it starting in the next 6 week rotation but do it in the afternoon when we do our art/craft/food activity. That way they can do what they want in the book but if they go play, that is fine too. I'm counting this year as just an introduction to it :-)
