Bear drew an angel picture (with verbal directions from Mom) and then painted it.
Worked with teen numbers with the number cards and bead bars.
More teens work. Bear works with the teen board at school so I got her to present it to me the way her teacher does it. She did. Then she wanted to play a game in which we take turns choosing a set of beads to hide – that’s why these are out of order in the photo.
Adding presents (2+3 in the photo)
Addition board – she chooses this a lot at school apparently.
Making snowflake ornaments.
Decorating gingerbread men (like last year but much more sophisticated).I cut the mittens and scarf out of felt for her.
Using a sticker set my mom sent Bear.
Bear is reading a lot of books independently now but only if someone sits next to her to listen. I love to hear her read to J-jo. I use the Houghton Mifflin site recommended by Mouse Grows Mouse Learns to find books that might interest her at the right reading level. It’s been a great tool. Bear is reading the “on level” books for grade one. I still credit Reading Eggs with boosting her confidence and stamina in reading.
I’ve been planning some fun units for the new year that I can’t wait to share.
