Snippets from our week homeschooling

Rowan is really starting to grasp alot of the topics we work on in school and it excites me to no end! Her ability to write is really blossoming and she's also learned all the numbers from 1-10. Letters are a bit more challenging.. I mean lets be honest, there are so many of them! But I know exposing her to the idea of letters and the fact that they all make sounds is laying a good foundation for her learning.

Here are a few snippets of our last week.
Moons and stars cookie cutter painting

Letter M worksheet... I'm so proud of her!


"M"ailbox!

Playing with homemade puffy paints to make a "M"oon also seen on No Time for Flash Cards

M&M candy experiment, this was a huge hit! Mostly because she got to eat the rest of the M&M's haha

Hi Anabelle. Thanks for visiting my blog. I tried to answer in an email to a question that you asked in your comment, but email bounced back. So here you go:

Hi Anabelle,

When Anna was a lot younger, we spent a lot of time learning letters - via Starfall.com, lots of alphabet books, alphabet blocks, etc. By about 2 she was crystal clear on her letters, both lowercase and uppercase. Then we spent time learning about sounds. When she was about 2.5, we started a program from ProgressivePhonics.com. It's completely free, and it worked really well with my daughter.

Your mountain came out so well! The mailbox really is a great idea.
