We began our day with circle time in the living room. That is where our calendar and weather station is, and also where we say our Pledge of Allegiance and do rhyme time every morning. Rhyme time is where we learn a new nursery rhyme and discuss the vocabulary used as well as word families specific to the rhyme. Today was Jack and Jill. Later this week, we will act out Jack and Jill. I'm super excited to tell them!
Libby worked on the letter 'A' today and we had a great time doing our ah-ah-alligator motion. Libby and I cut out her letter and pinned a leaf to her alphabet tree. It's a lonely little leaf, but she's proud of it.
She also traced the letter 'A' with her finger and pencil before using manipulatives to create the letter. She did GREAT!
Neely did her first lesson in math, working on place value. We are going to skip around and omit some topics in the Alpha math book that she has already mastered. Place value is something she could use a little extra help on since we will begin to work with double digits this year.
Both girls worked on science and social studies together. We found a good center that we could all benefit from and working as a team on those subjects. Poor girls wanted to do their science first because they want to know what's in my experiment supply boxes. Ha-ha! Patience my dears, we experiment every Thursday.
