March 24 - April 6, 2013

Two weeks at once because of Easter (Happy Easter!) and out-of-town guests.  I'm glad we worked ahead a bit because we are slacking off this week.

  • Saxon Math 1: Lessons 116-121 (writing the number 105, addition facts - the last eight facts; writing the number 106, measuring line segments using centimeters; writing the number 107, identifying geometric solids (cylinders and cubes); writing the number 108, subtracting ten from a number;  written assessment 23, oral assessment 12; writing the number 109, adding three single-digit numbers)
  • The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading: Lessons 168-175 ( r-changed vowels: ER as /ûr/; IR as /ûr/; UR as /ûr/; WOR as /wûr/; EAR as /ûr/; sight words: where, there, were; sight words: their, here; r-changed vowels: slightly-changed vowel sounds)
  • Zaner-Bloser Handwriting 1: Pages 96-106 (review Uu, Ss, Bb, Pp; Rr; Nn; Mm; Hh; review)
I'm adding Latin and logic to first grade.  Nothing crazy, just Getting Started with Latin and a Mind Benders book.  It's maybe another five minutes to our day.  I think he can handle it.


Oliver is doing great with matching.  His therapist gave him a letters matching game for his birthday and he can match each letter very quickly.  He's scanning the whole board each time, which is great.  We're also working on sorting by color.  I'm using our shapes and colors beanbags to set up an array and he's doing well.  We'll keep at it.


We're continuing with letters and numbers.  She's trying to count with one-to-one correspondence, but it's iffy (as expected).  She enjoys it though, and I want it to stay that way.


One tooth has finally broken free!  The other will emerge soon, I'm sure.
