That title pretty well sums up Brady’s interests this week. Here’s what we did the rest of the time:
Grammar: scrambled sentences, identifying subject
Spelling: color words, personal pronouns
Reading comprehension: putting pictures in “first, next, last” order
Phonics Game: “Copycats” (hard and soft ‘g’, ‘c’, etc)
Brady also wrote a bio-poem with his daddy in honor of National Poetry Month.
Money math: “how much more?”
Salsa video 106
Brief introduction to music history
We cut an ice cube with a piece of wire
Brady did a ton of painting this week, both with watercolors and our homemade paint (1C flour, 1C water, 1C salt, food coloring), I particularly love his roses.
He also asked me to make him a sketch book and then proceeded to design several album covers “for when I’m a rock star”
Brady has also really been enjoying watching videos on BrainPop lately and over the course of this week he watched videos on:
*going to the doctor
*being a good friend
*colds and flu
*states of matter
Such an awesome educational resource.
Other favorite activities this week:
*hide and seek
*Easter egg hunt reenactments with chalk eggs from his Easter basket
*playing outside in the few minutes of sunshine he could find
*Chutes and Ladders
*Trivial pursuit (on the Wii)
*Cut The Rope/Angry Birds/Fruit Ninja on daddy’s Kindle
*Rebuilding his Lego Wipeout course
And last night we said goodbye to Brady’s car bed and, thanks to an early birthday present from Gramma and Papa, moved on to a big boy bunk
Which very quickly became a fort
And that was our week. How are things in your homeschool?
