So a recap of what we did this week in school...not much. My focus with the girls have been Math and Spelling. I threw in some Bible, Science, and Writing also. They really like the new notebooking thing that we are doing and I will share about that at another time. Easton has continued to learn how to read beginner words. His attention span is pretty short, so we are doing as much as we can before he gets distracted. He likes playing games the best over sitting and reading.
Here are a few pictures from our week:
I made little flashcards with Easton's new words. I called them out and he had to run across the room and put them in a different location. I gave him 2 minutes to get all of the words right. It was kind of like a Price is Right game. I would ding if he got it right. He enjoyed that game.
|I saw this idea on pinterest. I saved bottle caps and put the letters on it. I then called out his words and spelled them with the lids.|
|The boys both played a phonics game on the Ipad|
|Jocelyn practiced cursive|
|Since the girls are doing the same spelling this year, they can play games against each other. Pretty tense!|
|We had a little play dough fun! Jocelyn is pretty creative...she made a cake here!|
Apples! Tis the season!! We have an apple tree out front...don't ask what kind. I have no clue. We made several apple recipes...carmel apple crisp and strawberry apple sauce were the kids favorite!
|To make applesauce...we peel the apples, slice them, put them in a cover pan on medium heat with just a little bit of water. After 15 mins we toss them into the blender. Puree them. Add sugar and strawberries and whoola!!! Easy peasy!|
|We are still out enjoying outside activities! We went to the sprayground and beach this week!|
