Connor’s Schooling; January 2012

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.

Language Arts:

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-IMG_3402 IMG_3406 IMG_3492

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.IMG_3430

He learned three new sight words: to, do and I -IMG_3385

He’s learning that apostrophe S’s mean the next word belongs to someone/thing-IMG_3382

He can read all of his one vowel word cards-IMG_3390 

He can write simple sentences in cursive!IMG_3496

And he learned his first capital letter in cursive: A-IMG_3496


He knows all his addition facts for 1-5-IMG_3393 IMG_3394

And he can write out the problems too-IMG_3407

He learned about dimes. What it looks like, has on it and that its worth 10 cents, or the same as 10 pennies-IMG_3368

He can easily count to 100, recognize every number from 0-100 and write them all-IMG_3387 IMG_3440

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)-IMG_3405

He’s been working alot on writing the number that comes after, simple addition, telling how many cents (with dimes)-IMG_3441

He learned that some of our foods come from plants. Like peanut butter comes from peanuts-IMG_3395

And orange juice comes from oranges. Here my hubbie is squeezing an orange for him to see the juice. Which Connor then drank.IMG_3397
