Here are a few snaps of our first few days of school....
We warmed up our brains with a little number review and manipulative exploration!
The we learned how to "shop" for books before "Read to Self".
Building "Stamina" can be challenging. We compare building "stamina" to working out at the gym. I make the analogy that if you work out wrong at the gym your muscles will build wrong and look funny (gotta bring it down to there level, remember). And if you practice reading wrong then you brain will not learn it right.
Something new I've been working on are ABC tracing cards. I went to a workshop this summer and read in one of the books of a study done with tracing cards and the rate of letter/sound recognition success.
My little girls were eager to be the first ones to use them!
