Apparently I forgot it was Friday and went straight to the grocery store this morning then later on headed out to the library, as we were walking in… yikes it ‘s Friday! We never sat down and did school work today! I got a yessss!!! from Liam as I said it out loud. As we drove home he read me the entire book Nacho Nacho and other rhyming riddles. Then we did two cooking/baking projects and settled down to watch the movie Stellaluna! we borrowed from the library. We watched the movie, then viewed the bonus material on bat facts and learned a few more things. He then took out his sketch pad and followed the step by step instructions on how to draw Stellaluna! He did his first sketch, then tried it again after giving it a critique, and colored it in.
Luke worked on patterns with snowflakes I bought at the dollar store and some games on sprout and pbs. He’s very quick and loves puzzles!
