Week 3, Tuesday
The day started with our nature journals - we decided to go in the front yard this time. Colin drew a blossom from the bird of paradise and the tree in the front yard, Nate drew a rock, I drew the tree trunk from our tree. As usual, I wrote out their narrations.

We moved inside and Colin worked on a time worksheet. This time he wrote out the full time, instead of just filling in the number for "o'clock". He did great and I know he's ready to move on to 15 and 45 minutes past.

While Colin worked on that, Nate worked with a set of art ABC blocks. He is working on learning to recognize all the letters and these blocks seemed to help a great deal. The more active he is, the better he learns. He loved the fact that he is getting better at recognizing the letters, and I still think it's funny that he knows the sound each letter makes, just not what it looks like.

Colin read Level 1, Book 6 in the Little Folks Phonics program. Stumbled a bit over the word "have" since it doesn't follow the silent 'e' / long vowel preceding rule. Otherwise he did great. His reading imprvoes everyday.

Both boys then played with the blocks and added more blocks in to build structures.

Colin needed to find something for the "guessing can" he was sent home with last week at the enrichment program. He was also supposed to think up 3 clues and bring those as well. He thought up 3 clues, I wrote them out, and then had him copy the clues and practice reading them. On his own, he then decided to do some copywork using a book of fairy tales.

Nate was excited that he had successfully recognized 5 letters and we were able to add stickers to his ABC achievement chart. He spent some time looking at different things trying to find more letters.

Nate decided to work on the Number Practice Workbook that he declined to do yesterday.

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.
