{Krazy in Kindergarten} Finishing Up Last Week

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

Last week was our first week back home from vacation.  I had plans of Thing 1 doing school every day last week, but it didn’t happen.  He only completed one day of last weeks work, so we this week he finished up.

Math:
*Identifying and locating the missing numbers from the numbers 11-20.
*Grouping items into groups of 10.
*Adding 10 and another number.

*Doubles math facts.

Reading:
He read four library books this week, including one which he received as his prize from the summer reading program at the “big” library.
*Ten Apples Up on Top by Dr. Seuss
*Puppy Mudge Takes a Bath by Cynthia Rylant
*Burn E the Fix It Bot by ??? (we seemed to have misplaced the book right now)
*Slam and Dunk Visit the Moon (or something like that, it seems to be misplaced also)

We also worked on the sight words: little, we, and do.

Spelling:
Things 1’s spelling words this week were: dot, jog, pod, Ron, sod, fog, lot, pop, rot, Tom.

We had some fun this week practicing our spelling words.  On Tuesday I had planned a shaving cream activity for Thing 2.  Well Thing 2 couldn’t be the only one with shaving cream, so both Thing 1 and Thing 3 played in the shaving cream too.  While they were playing I asked Thing 1 if he wanted to do his spelling words in the shaving cream for the day.  He loved it and did a great job spelling.  The only word that gave him any trouble this week was jog.

Handwriting:
We are continuing to practice handwriting on a daily basis.  I am having to work on breaking some bad habit he obtained when he first learned to write in preschool. I will say that over the last several week I have seen great improvement in his handwriting.

This week his sentences related to our beach trip.

Spanish:
We had one last week of review of greetings, numbers and colors.

U.S. Geography:
We are still spending just a little bit of time each day learning about another state in the United States.  This weeks states were North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska.

We had a great week.  Thing 1 is really fallen into a school routine, which allowed me to focus on getting Thing 2 back into school this week.  Next week I will add in the rest of Thing 1’s curriculum to his week, since we are done with all of our big trips.

How was your week?
