We tried our first file folder game! This was mostly for E but A participated as well. We gathered resources from http://www.christianpreschoolprintables.com/, http://www.dltk-bible.com/, and http://www.homeschoolhelperonline.com/ to make a Noah's Ark folder complete with a matching animals game, a mini book, and a rainbow coloring page! This was fun for both kids to hear the story and color. E really enjoyed the game once he understood the point.
A spent time reviewing her HonP lesson from yesterday and rereading the first 2 books. We are still really pleased with this product! The material is clear and concise and the set up really allows for as much practice as you want to incorporate!
She also spent some time this morning tracing her color words and reviewing them as we worked on the rainbow for our Noah's Ark file folder. We reviewed o'clock and thirty times with our flashcards too. We talked about the first 8 commandments again and began working on the ninth one "You shall not bear false witness." We also reviewed the first 5 states and began on number 6 Massachusetts. Her favorite worksheet of this morning was one I found at www.about.com/homeschooling where she was able to write in her birthday and that she will be turning 5! She is so thrilled that it is finally March!
Because today was the birthdate of Dr. Seuss, we read "The Lorax" and did a special art project.
The kids both enjoyed these! We will probably be doing more Seuss related activities through the week as we have many of his books!
E also took some time to play with the Jenga blocks and to do some color sorting. He is getting the hang of this a little more each time.
All in all it was a wornderful morning. Now everyone is quietly enjoying lunch and a movie (a special treat for sick days.)
Yesterday was PE and socialization when we enjoyed an open gym time with friends and then lunch at the playplace! :) We will all be thrilled when the weather is warm enough to do a couple of days a week of PE in the park!
