Week 3, Monday
I made a worksheet that listed the numbers 0 - 10 in boxes and gave them to the boys with a few sheets of stickers. They counted out the correct number of stickers to go into each box, and got a bit creative when the stickers were too big to fit in the space I allowed. They both did great at this activity, and had fun using the stickers their grandparents sent last week.

I read the first chapter from The Little Book of Saints, Volume 1, Circle of our Days and 2 books from the Tonka Emergency Vehicles series.

Colin read (on his own) Dune Bug and Hop On, Hop Off for his reading chart reading. He also read Books 4 & 5, Level 1 from the CHC Phonics program.

He successfully completed a time worksheet where he had to fill in the "X" o'clock after looking at analog clocks. He had no problem at all.

He worked on pages 3 - 5 from the Little Folks Number Practice, which was only about the number one. Very simple for him. Nate declined to work in his workbook.

Both boys built a castle with legos and drew pictures using stickers, pens, stamps and crayons. Colin created another number matching worksheet on his own. They played outside. They ran errands to the library (Colin chose a few more easy phonics books) and taking the cans to the recycling machine.

Their aunt came over late afternoon and she, Colin & I played a dice game. We each threw 2 dice, Colin added up each pair and announced who won based on the highest number. He was often able to determine the winner by just looking at the dice, but I had him practice his addition skills and add up each pair.

About Us
I'm a homeschooling mom with 3 wonderful kids! My boys are 6 & 7 and working at a 1st and 2nd/3rd grade level. We use Catholic Heritage Curriculum loosely, with lots of our own ideas added in. My boys attend an enrichment program one day per week during the traditional school year, which gives me extra time with my toddler daughter, and the chance to run some errands without my active boys.

This blog was a running list of what we do each school-day, but I tend to post here sporadically now. We usually school on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to take DH's days off into account.
