November homeschool roundup- Little W
Well November has come and gone. In 10 days we will be celebrating Christmas. A little late, but I thought it was time to share a bit of what Little W did in our homeschool last month.
His writing skills are really improving. We picked up a few workbooks and bring them out when he asks. He'll do a few pages at a time and then is off to something else.
Mathseeds and Reading Eggs are huge hits right now. In fact, there have been several fits thrown when I wouldn't let him play Mathseeds instead of taking a nap. A loved Reading Eggs at this age, but Mathseeds wasn't around. These computer programs are amazing and W loves progressing through the learning maps. He also is enjoying Starfall on his Ipad; another program that A loved at his age.
We've been going to story time at our local Library every week and Little W really enjoys it. We have a great Children's librarian and I love that he is getting to experience a little bit of the wonder A experienced at his age when we found our magical little library in PA.
Little W has been doing an amazing job reading lately so for November we made word family turkeys. That was fun!
At homeschool co-op, Little W played with the mini-luk. A had the smaller version for younger kids, but this one is for ages 5-7. He did great with it and loved it, so of course I came home and ordered one. I need to purchase more of the puzzle books that go with it, but I am impressed with how he is doing with it at not even 3 and a half.
Little W is definitely a math kid and LOVES all things numbers. In fact, the first words out of his mouth this morning were "2 and 2 is 4, 4 and 4 is 8, 5 and 5 is 10, and 10 and 10 is 20"
He loves playing with our hundred board. I often find him with it entertaining himself.
We love pattern blocks and I purchased the same wooden Melissa and Doug ones that his sister had when she was little. I found some great printable pattern block Thanksgiving sheets on Pintrest and he had fun with them all month long.
He had fun one morning doing some Thanksgiving themed worksheets including...
greater than, less than....
It's so fun watching my little guy develop into a reader. He surprises me constantly with what he can read. He loves me to take his picture each time he reads a book on his own. Here are just a few from November.
This is such a magical age. Doing things with Little W, my mind drifts back to when A was this age. It was fun, tiring, and magical. I miss those times but am blessed to have the chance to experience it again in some way.
I hope you enjoyed a peek into our homeschool days with Little W.
I'll catch up with A's November homeschool achievements soon!
