A week of our favorites in photos; California, Maps and Globes, Phonics, Fractions, Decimals and American Sign Language and a couple of workshops!
This is a great app for phoincs/reading! It has a nice progression, very thorough! (free)
phonics reading- McGuffey app- CVC
pick the letter that matches the sound you hear
learning to divide fractions
Living Books of the week- I recommend all of these! the Redwoods was my favorite!
Atlas Scavenger Hunt from A-Z

paper houses- Luke’s is a map of Thompson so he can live near his Aunt 🙂
California Redwood- Wood burning project

reading a complete sentence!!
building words with letter tiles, using CVC pattern
3-D shape collage

A-Z Atlas Scavenger Hunt Completed
Journal Entries: Pick a random word from the dictionary (Reliable)- Liam writes out definition and a picture-( Nay) Luke copies the word and draws a picture. A great change from journal prompts! Great way to incorporate grammar, vocab, spelling and copywork! I’m planning to do this a lot more often!!!
First to Fifty Fraction Game
The boys listened to stories, learned about history through songs and interacted in a couple of stories, then completed the handouts together once home.
We ended the week learning to sign the song “You are my sunshine” and completed reading all our library books! Next week we will continue with world geography mapping, hummingbirds and a bit more on California 🙂
