Another successful week completed. Another letter set to memory with learning and fun along the way. Repetition is key and incorporating it in a variety of ways solidifies the word. After this week he not only points out the letters he sees he will tell me the b words he learned. This is a ball and it starts with a letter b.
B kept us busy everyday from bike rides to baseball! We were not in a shortage of ideas to go outside.
We did 2 miles on the bike this day. It was not easy and he wanted to turn back which essentially at that point still would have been 2 miles. Baseball is a work in progress. He is a lefty so we got the bat accurate but my throw is not always precise. He does pretty good though and we need to work desperately on throws and catches.
He had structured computer time for the alphabet song (somehow he skip's letter j everytime), some letter games and to aid in phonics.
We pulled out beans and did several different things with them. He needed to find the letters A-Z in the alphabet soup. Using a pair of tongs he pulled them out and placed them appropriately.
I am not quite concerned with him pulling them out in order or knowing them. He doesn't know all of them but this is a good way of getting familiar with them.
We used the same sheet to match bottle tops with the letter.
He can match the letters together.
Here I called out the object on the sheet and he spelled out the words by finding what letter the object was. Such as r was for ring.
We read some great books just like last week. One book for although it centered around the winter season we used it to our current advantage!
Boot Weather was about a little girl who out her winter boots on and did more then what the naked eye could see. She was climbing mountains and going through tunnels with her boots and yet still close to home.
He put his boots on and checked out the depth of puddles!
Of course writing is a daily thing. To make it not seem like work we change up from paper, to the chalkboard or whiteboard. He writes but his favorite thing is to erase.
My craft for the week was trying my hand at making a bean bag. Now I'm not a professional so and because I couldn't find a needle and thread and I'm not a professional I used stitch witch.
Surprisingly it held up at least that day so I'm happy with that. I made two and they were played with for a good couple hours.
I had to fit a little food art in the week somewhere. So my food fun was with lunch. One day his sandwich became the letter B!
Cheers, to another good week and bring on a new week of adventure, fun and learning!
