MFW 1st Grade Days 12-16
The Lord is watching everywhere, keeping His eye on both the evil and the good. Proverbs 15:3
This week we did counting. I realize Ian is not good at that because he tends to miss things. We also started a 8sums-a-day practice drills. Basically I give him 8 addition/subtraction sums that are to his level everyday to practice, beginning with very simple ones.
I also love the pattern animal book. I feel that their worksheets have great questions.
I like Fun with Numbers, Just Enough Carrots quite a bit.
We talked about seeds, flowers...and we planted a rye grass project that someone gave us as a gift. It was really fun.
I made some lapbooks and did my own dot-a-dot Math worksheets.
I also found that it was fun to see how much uppercase letters my 3.5 years old recognize. And we did a fun busy bag idea of the poms here.
For ED, we went to the playground downstairs, rode our bikes and enjoyed the blue sky in the midst of tall buildings in the city.
