Week 27 In Review

R is for Rainbow.  I loved this week.  So colorful!  And we took a break from the human body to study rainbows for science.

Verse: "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." Ex 20:8
Song: Do Lord, remember me

Charlotte's shelf had: rainbow bookmark cutting/gluing project, Rainbow dry erase page, Rainbow cubes to sort in a veggie tray, Rainbow upper/lowercase puzzle, beginning sounds match-up puzzle, roll a rainbow, and rainbow number clip cards.

Instead of using do-a-dot markers this week, we focused on filling in the circles on the rainbow page with markers.

Charlotte finally has the hang of the clothespins on the clip cards.  I did have to hold the cards for her.

We have this beginning sounds puzzle that we got as a hand-me-down.  Charlotte is pretty good at it, but loses interest after about half a dozen matches are made.

Interesting reading spot.

This is a good example of how I modify to involve Charlotte in our lessons.  I've been using some flashcards for Charlotte to build words with, while Caroline does her spelling Read! Build! Write! on Tuesday mornings.

We haven't played with water and droppers nearly enough this year, but rainbow week was a good reason to get them out.

Charlotte really wanted to have a set of flashcards during math this particular day.  She's heard Caroline shout out enough math facts (the volume is usually more Caroline's idea than mine) that she kind of understands how a number sentence should sound.  The numbers never match the cards, however.  "Two plus two equals seven!"

Are number wrap-ups any easier if you are right handed?  At least it's a change from flashcards.
