Abby is 4 years old and Summer is 3.5 months.
We doubled up again this week on her RRSP portion. We do not include all activities, just pick and choose week to week.
Sight Word: In
Bible Verse: Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord.
Sight Word: Go
Bible Verse: Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.
Abby loves these easy readers. She has learned most of the words through You Can Read, which we will continue to review Units 1-6 until January.
Since Abby has taken an interest in workbooks in the recent weeks, we mainly work through those just because that's what she wants to do. Currently, I make her packets filled with a variety of resources that I will list below and encourage her to work independently on certain pages.
We have been using:
Fun to Trace
Fun to Cut
Fun to Color
Crayola: Connecting the Dots
A variety of Preschool Review books
She loves cutting and this particular activity came from Fun to Cut. I couldn't find a link on Amazon (The actual book we use, my mother in law bought through the school she works for), but I've seen similar at Target. I find it to be a little more challenging for her and it also lets her practice pasting.
Abby has asked to count to 100. First, we started skip counting by 10's. Once, she figured out the pattern she can get to 100 with help here and there. It's something we continue to work on, but it's exciting when she chooses what she wants to learn.
Speaking of taking the lead of a child, she's also started to pick up on sound blending and short and long vowels sounds. She finds it "tricky" when vowels make different sounds. :-) While, I hadn't planned on getting to that just yet, it is something that I will have to start with her soon.
I used to have Abby do quiet reading for about 15 minutes. And while quiet and Abby are words that can never be synonymous with one another, I've found something better....Reading time with Summer. It's the perfect combination for them both.
As for little Summer...she's discovered her toes! :-)
And, she started rolling over from her back to her tummy.
