Teaching Hearts) . They always love when they get to use the giant foam dice that we have and, amazingly, they had very few extra rolls; they had to tally mark each number that they rolled and you can see that there weren't a lot of marks! (Josh's is the one above and Nates picture is the orange one.)
The Moffatt Girls.
1+1+1=1 to teach them "The Twelve Days of Christmas". We sing one section each day and they have a number tracing sheet to do as well.
Happy Home Fairy that was perfect. It's just these little cards/pictures that you place inside an envelope; each day pull out the card which tells one piece of the Christmas story and the pictures. It's a great way to talk about the Christmas Story with the boys.
Our regular school work is going great. Josh accomplished a big thing in phonics . . .he can sound out words; he is beginning to read! It is so awesome to see that happen and see him start to put the sounds together.
It's hard to believe that we are coming into our last week of school for 2014. We will take the week of Christmas off without anything school related at all. We will do some fun things but mostly, we'll focus on Nate's birthday and Christmas. The week of New Years, I'd like to do as little as possible but I may plan a couple of fun crafts to break up our day.
