Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great January! And stayed warm! We are having an unseasonably warm winter, and i love it :)
Here is what Connor worked on last month.
He has been reading from little books, and using a bookmark to help guide him. He’s also been reading pages from these books as homework twice a week-
He learned that a ‘smile’ above a vowel means it makes a short sound. And that usually when a word has one vowel, it makes the short sound.
He learned three new sight words: to, do and I -
He’s learning that apostrophe S’s mean the next word belongs to someone/thing-
He can read all of his one vowel word cards-
He can write simple sentences in cursive!
And he learned his first capital letter in cursive: A-
He knows all his addition facts for 1-5-
And he can write out the problems too-
He learned about dimes. What it looks like, has on it and that its worth 10 cents, or the same as 10 pennies-
He can easily count to 100, recognize every number from 0-100 and write them all-
And he can count by 10’s to 100 all on his own!
He reviewed time (he can only tell the time if its exactly on the hour)-
He’s been working alot on writing the number that comes after, simple addition, telling how many cents (with dimes)-
He finished studying Plants/Seeds:
He learned that some foods have seeds on the outside, like strawberries-
He learned that some of our foods come from plants. Like peanut butter comes from peanuts-
And orange juice comes from oranges. Here my hubbie is squeezing an orange for him to see the juice. Which Connor then drank.
He learned about the Netherlands! Or has he likes to call it, Neverland ;)
That’s it folks! :)
