We had a pretty light week this last week. We followed the ITTY-BITTY BOOKWORM CURRICULUM only and had a FABULOUS time doing it!
I have to tell you one thing I love about it is the variety of projects and skills are so great! And as someone who has NEVER been a teacher, I appreciate the way it's spelled out for me and helps to recognize with ease what areas we need to work on more and where he's really getting it.
Here is a little of what we did:
We worked on Big & Little/sequencing- Zorro has got that concept down no problem. We're adding in Medium this next week. Then more sequencing.
We worked on Counting- Zorro can count to 12 no prob. After that he needs coaching.
We worked on Number recognition- Ya, we have a Loooooooooot of work for that. :) Ironically we went on a little hike and at the half mile sign (.5) he ran up to it and said "Five!" D and I were blown away. We tried again later...no luck. HA! Oh well.
We worked on cutting straight lines and shapes-I am very, very surprised how WELL he is doing! We definately need lots more cutting practice but doing great!
We worked on Patterns- Didn't go so well.
We worked on Alphabet- You know how much he loves that...NOT
He painted with apples and fingers to his hearts content!
This last activity is our take on a IBB activity.
We made a multi-colored apple tree. I will also post this separately.
