It was so gloriously wonderful outside today we just HAD to do our lessons on the patio. We reviewed our presidents 1-15 and learned 16-20. Is it weird that I have a crush on Franklin Pierce??
Then we moved on to our Spelling lesson and worked on spelling with the short 'a' and short 'i' sounds. She's getting really good at segmenting words into sounds.
Next came handwriting. She wrote 4 new letters for the first time today: h, k, f and qu. We learn them as phonograms so 'qu' is the team we learn instead of 'q' since its very rarely used on it's own in English.
Finally, we finished lesson 11 in her Reading Lesson. I can't say enough praise about this book. It breaks new concepts down into manageable increments and uses temporary hints to help decipher different sounds. After you've had enough exposure to the new concepts the hints slowly disappear.
Time to read aloud together. Snack time is over and my computer time has expired, lol.
I hope you are having blissful weather wherever you may be.
