Sorry this is more of a "This is what we did this week" instead of a "This is what we are going to do this week." There are just so many posts that I want to get up these days that I wasn't able to do this one until today. I guess that is a good problem =)
This is our first week back to our regular reading/writing lessons after taking time off to write "I'm thankful for you." notes at thanksgiving, celebrate advent, and then write thank you notes for Christmas gifts. We had to get back up to speed on some of the sounds that letter combinations make, but other than that he really did well. I'm so pleased with how his writing is coming along by just doing copywork. He still is working on perfecting the 'angle' letters like K, V, and W, but other than that it's really good! When we do writing, along with the copywork I give him a 'test' of sorts by asking him to write different words that we have learned in a special notebook (when we started, it was just writing letters). This is neat because it challenges him to have to sound out the word and then think which letters (or letter combinations) make up the word, and lastly think of how to write the letters. It's a great multi-step process for his little brain =) Sine we do this all in one notebook, it's really neat to look back to September when his attempts at individual letters were mostly illegible and compare that to just a few short months later when all his letters are looking pretty good and he is actually putting them together to form words! This teaching stuff is hard work, but it is so good!
What have you been learning with your children this week?
