Posts Detailing Activities Done in this Lesson Plan:
This was last week's lesson plan. We got in our new character training book and were able to start reading it. It is called Wisdom and the Millers. Each chapter is a story about the Miller family that illustrates a particular Proverb. So far I really like the book. The stories are thought provoking, but short and simple. They are a bit over Trevor's ability to thoroughly understand, but he asks questions as I read and it brings up many good things to talk about.
His ability to read is increasing by leaps and bounds since we started using McGuffey's Eclectic Primer. He is really enjoying the stories and is so excited to see that the words he is reading actually fit with the little picture and also answer the questions he stops to ask. I know everyone says it, but it truly is so rewarding to see your child read and begin to understand that words are for a purpose. Trevor loves to ask questions when I'm reading to him, so I am most excited to show him that if you just listen (or read!) on, you question will probably be answered by the words on the page. It's so neat to see a whole new world opening up to him =) If you are looking for a way to teach your child to read without all the workbook pages and flashy distractions, I completely recommend McGuffey's Eclectic Primerand of course the copywork I created to go along with it!
