Well the last couple have days have gone great!
Wesley readBrown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?: 40th Anniversary Edition (Brown Bear and Friends)with very little help from me. Its so great watching him gain confidence with his reading skills. He actually got mad at his speech path on Thursday because she was reating him a Franklin book and she wouldn’t let him take a turn. I’m not sure why? She implied to me when she left that she noticed he was understanding that words mean something, and that was the first step to reading. I told her, he’s passed that stage, she’s starting to read. I’m not sure if she believed me. She is suppose to bring pictures next time to work on sounds with him. Were using word card props to help him with his sentences. He tend to leave out words like “the”.
I’m so excited! Today I received a new product in the mail called MonkiSee MonkiDo to review. I’m planning on using the program for the next few weeks with my daycare children, and my son. Krista the creator of MonkiSee and I are planning a giveaway on this blog in the next few weeks for my public followers. So click on and follow my blog so you can see when the review/giveaway becomes available. Also check out Krista’s blog here. Krista is a homeschooling mother of 6 wonderful children, and used this program with her two youngest. She has lots of great ideas for teaching your baby/young child on her blog.
The kids and I decided to do a science experiment. We took baking soda, vinegar and water. Mixed it in a old pop bottle and it created carbon dioxide and blew up the balloon. Actually I followed the directions and it only blew it up a little. My bf came over and said the directions I was using was too weak. He mixed the same ingredients in larger amounts and managed to get the balloon to blow up like it is in the picture above. My goal is to do one science experiment during the week when we have both kids.
Well I’m off to bed! Have a great weekend!
