Preschool Wrap Up


Art:

Bear drew an angel picture (with verbal directions from Mom) and then painted it.

Math:

Worked with teen numbers with the number cards and bead bars.
CIMG5592More 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.

Reading:

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.
