Welcome!! Happy Friday!
Does anyone know if younger siblings are allowed on the old town field trip if I’ll be accompanying?
Yes! You just can't help drive any other kids to the field trip or be in charge/chaperone any other kids other than your own. I'll be bringing my 3 year old son with me!
Good to know in case I have to bring my lo
Liv started her day with her Eureka Math sheets and practicing writing out two digit #'s as I called them out to her. She is making big improvements when differentiating between teen #'s and #'s by 10's (20 30, 40, etc. She has been confusing 14 with 40 or 60 with 16). She also read 3 Level 3 BOB books and thought of and listed words that end in -ay and also made a story using her sight words. For creative play time she and her brother made a restaurant and pretended to be waiters and customers, using a clip board and paper to take orders. For Science the kids made slime from a kit and I read to them the pamphlet on how biologists study real slimes in organisms. They also stretched it as far as they could and used a tape measure to record who's was longer. For PE they played hockey in the garage and are off to Ice Skate classes later this afternoon.
Hudson started with his math worksheets and the ones that he made up for his sick day. He was excited to add the new sight word to the others, so he used the dry erase board to practice writing it in a sentence. The dry erase was a great tool to learn to write the sight words from memory. He got some and needed help with some, so I can see this will be great to do in the future for practicing sight words. He did art after that and drew the earth and a few animals. Hudson loves rocks and finding new ones so he went outside to hunt for more. We were able to discuss how we think they got where he found them and how old he thinks they are.
Isabel completed her math worksheets and did a little ST math. She then read some Bob Books, and did her sight words. We are trying to get back to studying our world and picking a country to learn about, at least twice a month, so today we learned about Puerto Rico! We made "aroz con pollo" for dinner & listened to traditional music while we ate, and learned a few facts about Puerto Rico.
On Friday Zoe completed her math worksheets and she did some others out of another kinder book she loves.
She wrote her friend Isabel and letter and decorated it. We also reviewed sight words and played sight word game.
We also spend"t tons of time reading Dr. Seuss all weekend and we made green eggs and ham on Friday morning and read the book again!! Thank you Ms. Candia for making a Thursday so fun :).
We started out our day by reading a lot of our Dr. Seuss books. Parker would point out sight words that he could recognize. We completed a few phonics worksheets in one of his own work books. He also completed a few pages in his Eureka math workbook - as I think Parker did not come home with homework sheets. We practiced the alphabet. He wanted to write a list of his favorite movies. He sounded out and tried to write the titles down by himself.
We had a fabulous Friday! We begin the day with our math sheets and Joshua knew just what to do with very little instruction. We moved on to our letter workbook will be worked on different letter sounds like the short A and the long O. Then he went and did some ST math for a little while. And for writing he chose to write about whether or not he likes rain and why. He filled up the whole page today so that was an improvement. And we capped off the day with about 45 minutes of reading Bob books.
Gage started off wiTh his math worksheet and did some independent reading then read a book to me and his sister. He seemed very distracted from actua school work so I decided to pull out the toys. Yes he played but he also built an entire speedway. And was very detailed in what items he needed to include. He had the raceway, entrance, bathrooms, sitting area, and other buildings he constructed. He enjoyed himself with playing while learning to construct and build!!!
Kain worked on his math worksheets. We have been fighting the never ending kinder sickness battle. So we also did math he missed during the week. We read Bob books and tried to start working on site words. He is still struggling with recognizing a few alphabet letters but has improved a lot.
Olivia finished her math worksheets, wrote a letter to her favorite YouTuber (😂), wrote a story about her and her dad, read books and found an old VTech device that still worked and was actually really educational. She practiced spelling words and writing text messages on it. She also worked in one of her work books on number bonds and filling in the missing letter.
We went to lake murray for a walk and ran into a classmate. Then we went to the tidepools in La Jolla and it was so much fun. We saw tons of animals and got all of our PE in as we walked ran and swam for several hours. we did our math sheets and ST math and practiced our numbers. We got our new level books and worked on reading a few of them. I also bought and hung up an analog clock and a digital clock in the girls room to help tem tell time.
We started with the eureka math and followed with reading lots of new books. As usual Zoey calling out words she recognized and also sounding out new words. Did letter/sound practice and fluency work.
Caleb made recipe books for art and writing. For math he did ST math and the packet. We read several books together and he read on his own. He went exploring rocks also and used his hammer to break open the inside of several of them.
Apologies for the post being late... our computer crashed :(
Cash finished math worksheets and then he decided to make more math problems for him to do and completed those as well. We watched some science YouTube videos followed by a lengthy discussion of what we learned and our opinions of the info over lunch.
Cash did a lot of level reading (thankyou for keeping those books out for us Ms Candia!) and I am reading the Boxcar Choldren books to the boys right now so we did that as well. We went to the beach and played in the backyard for PE.
We did our math and reading. Sadie is really enjoying her new found reading level so we went to the library and checked out all sorts of books. She does her gymnastics every Friday and that fills our day. We also went to the home and garden show this weekend in Del Mar and the girls picked out succulents to plant in the garden. We talked all about different types of succulents and saw some pretty bizarre ones too.
Oliver completed the Math worksheets. He also practiced counting by 10s as far as he could go. He was interested in what "infinity" meant, so we tried to explain that to him! He also learned about how wax candles are made.
Caleb and Noelle completed:
Dr. Seuss packet that focused on rhyming words
"Was" sight word page
We read, read and read
Noelle had piano practice
Caleb had BJJ
We wrapped up our day by watching Coco and discussing our Mexican heritage... we all cried!!!
Oliver worked on his math packet, st math and sight words in the morning. After a hike at mission trails, Oliver asked to learn about frogs, so we read and watched some cool videos and discussed.
Jake had a play date with an old preschool buddy. His sister helped him with some of his math workbook pages. We had stayed in and took it easy because Jake and his sister were leaving for Disneyland the next day.
Abdullah and his siblings work on number recognition. we read book together and encourage to color with his sister.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
