A lot of these I got off Pinterest but followed nicely with what we were working on. Site Words are huge and we have been doing them for probably about 6-7 months now but slowly until this summer where we really bumped up after talking to my sister in Boston on what she was doing with her son Peter who is the same age as the boys. Our goal was to be up to 50 words by the end of summer but through fun activities and play. One thing I did was take parts of the newspaper (and their preschool teacher did this too) and had them highlight certain site words. They loved this!
|Today we took a "Thor super hero hammer" and smashed site word I called out. Boy did they love that one!|
|This is a sweet prayer that is easy for kids to use when they are learning prayers and can use their hand to remember. Boys love this one and do it more at night.|
|I let them play teacher a lot to stump each other in Math, however it backfires sometimes and they end up fighting. GRRRRR|
We started senses today which they pretty much know but since they have to work on their writing skills, I would call out one of the words below on the sheet and they would have to write which sense it was under the Senses photo, then I let them try to sound out that word and cross it off on the bottom. All and all, a good "morning" with school but afternoon turned into wild Mayhem (another story).
