To celebrate our week of learning about the Vikings, after I put Ditto down for his nap, Munchkin watched Lyle, the Kindly Viking. Then, while I was eating lunch, he came to me all on his own and asked if I would show him what Viking letters looked like. I found this image and he wrote and drew this picture...
For our language lesson today (Lesson 73), I read Munchkin The Snow Man by Mildred Plew Meigs and then asked him to retell it to me.
He had such a tough time with this. He kept asking me if he could just read it because he couldn't remember anything about it. I told him we would just take a little break and try again later today or tomorrow. (We'll see what I can come up with to help him understand how to do this better.)
In math today, Munchkin was introduced to fractions...
|put together is a whole|
|taken apart is half|
|and then we enjoyed a delicious snack and...|
|...saved the seeds for a future math lesson|
|Number writing practice (we each circle our favorite and discuss why they are our favorites - we both liked all number 16s)|
|Short bead stair memorization work|
Meanwhile, Ditto did not take a nap today so he joined us for some of our school time today. He kept very focused and busy by working on these Halloween/Fall pattern cards and manipulatives. I am just working on matching with his right now and later will begin to work on continuing the pattern.
My hubby and I are heading to Chicago tomorrow (our first couples trip since before Munchkin was born...that's 5 years) and we don't get back till Tuesday so we won't have any school posts for a few days.
