Living Inside Out Children's Church. November's Theme: StarQuest. We had great fun participating in the dancing and games.
Phys. Ed.: We started with exercises and outside playtime. I hope to explain these more later, but right now time is short. Jumping on the trampoline, swinging on the rope swing, doing relay races in the field, riding bicycle in the driveway, and toe touches.
Calendar: We counted that November is the 11th month, then we reviewed the days of the month poem. She put the correct days on the magnetic calendar. We talked about events and holidays this coming month.
We learned the ASL sign for November. Then she colored a picture from the Nov. Idea Book.
Reading/Social Studies: We've been reading through some old editions of American Girl Magazine. Shayla likes to point out similarities and differences with her and other girls.
Reading/Phonics: Shayla read Whoa Foal! for the last time, so her reward was playing around on the starfall site for awhile. She also completed a page in her phonics workbook.
Math: We counted out Box Tops for Education labels that we have been saving. It was good practice of counting by 10's. We saved $16 worth to donate to our local elementary school!
Writing: Started Badge 4. I can't believe the difference in Shayla's writing lately. At the end of preschool - age 6. It was estimated that Shayla's fine motor skills were that of an 18-24 month old. Two and a half years later, her handwriting is beautiful. I think it is every bit as good, if not better than a typical Second Grader. This beautiful handwriting just started. Interestingly, it started almost the same time that I started doing the Brain Balancing Exercises with her.
Attended Kings Kids and Morgan's Band Award Ceremony/Concert.
Tuesday: Nothing noteworthy.
Therapy: We did our exercises in the snow! Yes, we got our first snowfall today. Although, the weatherman on TV said it wasn't sticking - it did at our house, at least until noontime.
Social Studies/Art: We have been working on projects from the November Idea Book. Shayla made a paper cornucopia today. Each day she will color and cut out a piece of fruit to put in it. On the fruit she will write something she is thankful for.
We are also learning about Thanksgiving traditions around the world. Today we learned about Greece.
Thursday: Field trips.
