This week focuses on the letter K & David.
We started off on Monday with a new fingerplay. He read the sentences portion of reading lesson #87. We read in the Bible about David. We did a craft that was in the curriculum, with some sheep, clouds, flowers, & a river. He practiced writing "K" & "k". There was an activity to act out what we read in the Bible. I've been skipping these type of activities more & more as time passes. Part of me feels guilty, since it seems like it would make learning more fun. BUT I did some pondering on this & I do believe I am making the right decision, as my kid just gets super distracted & unfocused & doesn't get much learning out of it when we do these activities. So I think from now on I will continue to discuss these rather than act them out. I just think it's the right decision for my kid/situation. Then we did an extra craft, making a sheep, since David was a shepherd, watching over sheep & goats. Then he read the sentences/paragraphs portion of his reading lesson, then we did some Spanish, & then music. I don't think I'm going to have time today to read aloud. Mondays have become insane with the swim lessons thrown into the mix......I think next month when I renew swim class I will have to move it to another day, as I already have tons of laundry & house cleaning on Mondays.
