Outside the school room, the blocks have been used every day...one of our best purchases ever!
Kal-El completing a "Reading Folders" sort.
Our Antarctica continent box contains an aerial map of the man-made structures of McMurdo Station. Kal-El came up with the idea to build McMurdo Station out of legos. He would LOVE this relief map.
Token Girl (my niece) stayed with us for a few days. Doing her hair was a great reminder of why God blessed me with boys. Poor kid! I'm sure she's glad to be home!
Kal-El and I read a "team poem" called "The Long-I Line" together (from The Ordinary Parent's Guide to Teaching Reading). It uses all of the "I" sounds: ie, i-e, y, and igh. It also contains the sight words "eye" and "I." Me Too listened along.
Afterwards, we all colored a train to match the descriptions Kal-El read in the poem. I usually avoid coloring pages like the plague, but liked the "recall" purpose of this one.
We were blessed with warm weather this week so the boys spent a lot of time outside riding bikes and planning an obstacle course they want to build this summer. When the weather is not as great, the boys spend a lot of time climbing on the big climber in the basement and riding their big wheels in circles.
