Today we completed day 3 of our Thomas and Friends theme. The boys are still loving school. I say school, and they start running. I am sure there will be a day soon, when they don’t come running, but I am enjoying every minute of it while they do.
School happened a little differently today for a couple of different reasons. First, since the boys have been so in to school this week, we have done almost everything I have had planned for the week, and then some. Therefore, today was spent doing a lot of things that we had already done. However, I did try and change them up so that they felt “new.”
Secondly, I was able to work with each boy individually. Today I put together a few “centers” for one boy to do while I worked with the other. I literally put them together 2 minutes before we started school, but despite the lack of planning, I was able to get the one on one time that I desired. So I consider it a success that I am going to start adding into my planning.
Since I was able to work with each boy one on one, I was able to do the play doh activity with Thing 2 that I have wanted to try. I am so happy that we were able to do that, because he absolutely loved it. He did several different shapes after we did his name a couple of times.
Thing 1 had a pretty light day since he has completed just about everything for the week. We did do some word family practice and some sight word tracing.
This week has definitely taught me that I need to plan a few more activities. Honestly, I had no planned a lot since I will be out of town on Friday. In hindsight, I should have planned Friday, because that would have allowed me to have some more activities for tomorrow. I will be winging tomorrow, but I don’t think the boys will mind as long as they get to do school.
Just another day Learning with the Cameron Clan!
