K4: Inching Closer To The End

Thursday, September 19, 2013

I must admit, as much as I've enjoyed using Confessions of a Homeschooler's, K4 program for Abby's "in between" stage...I'm ready for a change.  I've got big plans for Abby and I couldn't be more excited for what's to come.  I'll be posting our 2013-2014 Curriculum Choices in the next month.  In the meantime, I'm still praying over a few options and hope to solidify my decisions within the coming weeks.
 

We recently made our first batch of colored rice.  I couldn't be happier with results and Abby has very much enjoyed searching for her sight words using it.  Here's my post featuring the recipe, if you missed it. She gets disappointed when the letter tiles are visible, so in the future I'll be making sure they are absolutely covered and hidden well. :-)

Her sight words were two and who.

She worked on building silly sentences...one of her favorites.

And, we worked on lots of math activities, reviewing numbers 1-100, skip counting by 10's, 5's and 2's, subtraction.  Here--she's using stickers to count 1-30 in the maze.

Abby ended the week with her first soccer game!

  1. I had to giggle at deeply hiding the letters! My daughters surprise me with little things like this, too.

    Happy Homesachooling!

    1. I'm not sure why it took me so long to get the rice out..haha. I've been searching for many more sensory ideas on Pinterest. I'm sure there are so many I'm not even thinking about.

  4. I'm loving that "My first sentence" printable! Do you know if that's part of the purchased K-4 curriculum or is it available on the COAH site for free? And I know what you mean about loving a curriculum but needing a change after a bit. I think it's like that with everything. :)

    1. Hey Tanya, I believe almost all the K4 printables can be found for free on Erica's site. I just purchased the bundle pack. Here's the link for the my first sentence building activity--http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/phonics-printables.

  5. I love the colored rice. Another great learning tool. Sounds like she wants it to be a bit of a challenge to hunt for the letters.

    1. I will need to remember to double the batch next time for extra thickness and hiding places. She's too funny.
