Tuesday - book work today

Since we are going out this afternoon, we decided to do some book work this morning.
I asked the lad to pick a number between 3 and 8 and that's how many pages we would do in each book. He waffled between 4 and 5 and settled on four. :)

These are the books that we did

Capital and lowercase letters.

After this book we read two poems, one of those poems mentioned wind and weather maps which we want to look up sometime.

Letter Play

After this book we read a story.

Number Fun

We read a poem called "wagons west". It was a fairly long poem, and lad asked questions which I always like.

Then we did Fisher Price, preschool book, I can learn. This book had number and letter sound concepts in it. He had a great deal of fun teaching one of his baby(correction little child) stuffies about matching and letter sounds. On one page he made up stories about why different stuffies didn't like different shapes.

Then we read a poem about Indian children. Can't say it went over very well. :)

The complete book of numbers and counting

Once again doing this book the stuffies played an important role in helping him count and to teach. We had a lot of fun using his stuffies to reinforce learning. :)

We followed this book by reading the Little Red Hen where the lad helped read the "not I" and the "I will" parts. by the end of the story he was also filling in the animal parts.

My Heavenly Helper, k-2

This book has lots of dot to dots in it. It's interesting seeing him learning well his letters and numbers even though I don't focus on this information a lot in our schooling. But through reading and copywork he's doing good at picking it up. After this book we read a story about a tiger called "Kattor". He was a rather silly young tiger who had to learn a lot growing up.

This afternoon we need to take dad to the eye doctor so we're going to go see a movie called "African Cats".
