One thing I learned from last week, is that the boys were not interested in the summer theme that I had chose. Which made me realize that if I want the boys to enjoy learning, then I should help them learn about the things that interest them.
Thus, one day last week I asked the boys what they wanted to learn about. I got the typical boys answers of cars, trucks, motorcycles, fire trucks, trains, etc.
So I worked super hard this weekend, thanks to my husband entertaining the boys, and came up with our new theme of the week Robots! I even got my act together and checked out library books, both fiction and nonfiction, to go along with our theme. Thing 1 and Thing 2 have already enjoyed looking at our robot books.
I am hoping that this weeks theme excites the boys a little more considering that they ask to do “school” every day. So here is a look at our lesson plan this week.
- YCR(2) is the You Can Read sight word curriculum that I found online. Thing 1 has responded well to this curriculum.
- Most of the activities that are linked (written in blue on the document) are from the website Homeschool Creations. I am using different parts of the robot preschool pack she has made.
This is an outline of what we are going to attempt this week. There are some spaces that I will need to fill, but I will get there.
