We're going to start doing a letter a week. Each days activities will somehow incorporate that week's letter. This week is A. Today we just did an introduction. We looked at a capital A and small A, then practiced writing them. Here's Princess V's work.
Princess C and I worked on the chalkboard, with me guiding her hand. I then wrote a bunch of different words on the chalkboard, and had the girls find and underline both the big and little A's. Last we ended with a little Apple math. The look of "AH HA" on Princess V's face when we did this was so warming to me as a parent. I drew 3 apples on the board. Princess C helped me count them. Then I drew a + and one more apple. I asked Princess V how many Apples we had now...answer 4 ("Hey that's just like me!"). Then I showed Princess V how it looks in number form. We added one more to 5 just for fun. Princess C was with us, but she likes to do her own thing, so I'm not sure how much she got out of it.
This is my tentative plan for the week -
Tuesday - Aerobics
Wednesday - Science: Air
Thursday - Music: Accordion and Alto Saxophone
Friday - History
Saturday - Airplanes with a trip to Hill Air Force Base museum
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm not really sure what we'll be doing friday, possibly some history lesson, maybe something else.
