So if you haven’t notice, there has been a long absence in Totally 3 posts. Back in March, after I worked to create a Yummy ABCs for Thing 2, he really lost interest in school. It was also about that time that I decided we were going to enjoy the wonderful weather and start back at to school when it was hotter.
Thing 1 started back to school in May, and I thought that Thing 2 would follow, but he didn’t until now. So fo the first time since March, Thing 2 has done school and he seems to actually remember some of it even after a couple of days.
However, I had to create some new activities for Thing 2, because he was not interested in learning about food anymore. So with Thing 2’s new interest in animals I created some animal based letter activities.
For Thing 2’s math I am loosely following the Horizons Kindergarten math. The first few lessons were based on counting to 10, practicing the direction words top and bottom, and writing the number one. I used the monkeys for counting practice. I used a combination of the tree and monkeys to talk about top and bottom. Thing 2 completely nailed all of these things.
We did a few activities where Thing 2 had to locate the letters M and m. The only time we he ran in to any problems is when it came to the letter w.
One of the worksheets I created was designed to have Thing 2 circle the objects that started with the letter m. Thing 2 rocked this activity. He had completed half of the worksheet before I had finished explaining the directions.
What has your three year old done this week?
