Read along out loud, I Can Write book (reading).
Completed ARFH-K pg 10 - tracing straight and slanted lines. Pgs. 15 & 16 - tracing o's and making o's with just a start dot. (She was unable to do this independently, so I drew dotted lines for half of an o and she completed the other half.) She traced the word octopus and colored a picture of one.
Used pipecleaners to form letters of the alphabet.
Spelling: Introduced consonants l, q, y, and z. I named several words that begin with these letters, Shayla got them all correct, so I didn't see any need to review. She completed pg 330.
Music & Movement: First we listened to some of Shayla's favorite music here. Then, we had a pots and pans jamboree. Playing pots and pans was one of Shayla's favorite activities when she was younger, but I thought it would be a fun time to talk about musical terms like beat and such. You can see what she thought of this activity!
We were really feeling wild, so we got out our tote of musical instruments. Some were bought over the years, but we have just as much fun with our homemade ones in here, too. Like our shakers and spoons.
