He is doing so well with school! He has figured out his routine pretty well and knows what is expected of him, and most of the time does it. He's generally a pretty compliant child who is eager to please, so that makes things a little easier.
He is using Bob Jones Kindergarten Beginnings and now sings along with Hopscotch on the DVDs. He is doing amazingly well with his sight words and getting there with his word families and blends. Some days he can get them right away and then other days he looks at us like we're speaking a foreign language. Which, I guess if you're just learning, is pretty accurate. :)
We are still really enjoying Heart of Dakota Little Hearts for His Glory. His favorite part of the day is when it's time to read about Reddy Fox. Even though we finished the Reddy Fox book and are now on to Peter Rabbit, he still calls it Reddy Fox. I love snuggling up with him and reading to him.
In history, he has gone from Creation to Sampson so far. It is absolutely amazing to me how many of these stories he already knows - from either Mrs. Russell's class, Sunday school, AWANA, or Veggie Tales. LOL When I start to read a story and he finishes it for me and I ask him how he learned that story, I never know what the answer is going to be.
In science, we're talking about plants, and if I were a good mom, I would have had him plant something. ;) Maybe I'll get to that soon.
We are doing a mix of the Bible study recommended in the HOD guide and his AWANA verses for Bible, and he is doing very well with that. He gets SO EXCITED when he has a verse memorized and can't wait to go share it with his teachers. GO my little one!
I have to say though - his favorite part of all of his schoolwork is snack time. About once or twice a week, it's Snack Day with Hopscotch. They are cute and clever snacks that he makes himself. This means there is usually peanut butter all over his desk. Here's one snack day treat:
Can you tell it's a mouth? Apple slices with peanut butter and marshmallows for teeth.
Usually the sisters get in on the snack day action:
These are traffic lights. (Did I already post this picture? I went to find the mouth picture and this one was next to it. The bed was still in the family room though, so this may have been from one of the other weeks I blogged!)
And I think that's it for our weekly (or monthly!) review! We have several field trips coming up in the next couple of weeks. We are very happy to get out of the house a little!
