Our Week in Review

*This post contains affiliated links

Today is Friday, and we have another week in the books. In case you have ever wondered what we do all week, here are just a few of our highlights.

Of course I will start with math. You know this is my favorite, and we have had a lot of fun in this area. If you have read any other posts from this week, you know we have been working on quadrilaterals. We started off the week using pre-cut quadrilaterals to create a picture and then graph the number of quadrilaterals we use.

Next we created an interactive notebook. It was a challenge to sort the shapes and their attributes, but a lot of learning occurred.

We thoroughly enjoyed our bingo game, and I loved watching light bulbs start going off as we continued to focus on parallel lines, equal sides, ect.

There was actually one more challenging, but incredible fun activity that we finished up this week, but you will have to check back on Monday to see what that was!!!

Well, moving unto reading. Since I would rather spend my time coming up with new math activities for my kiddos, I use a lot of This Reading Mama and The Measured Mom’s resources. This week was no exception.

My 4 year old is working his way though Reading the Alphabet from This Reading Mama. It is a 31 week lesson plan that focus on a letter and a sight word each week. C worked on the letter I and the sight word big.

Since the next lesson is going to focus on -ig words, we did a little previewing with a fun coloring page from 1 plus 1 plus 1 equals 1.

N, my six year old did some Long O work. We loved these two activities.

This Long O Vowel Pack took us most of the week. Not only did we get a better understanding of CVCe , we also learned new vocabulary. It was great how the same words were used through out the week, and with lots of conversation he began to remember what lob and pope meant.

At the very end of the week we moved on to other ways to make long O words using The Measured Mom’s family mats. I love how these are almost no prep, and N almost thinks they are a game.

Finally, we began to learn about George Washington as President’s Day is quickly approaching. We read a lot of books, and began a chart of some interesting facts we have learned. We enjoyed George Washington Our First President, as it was an easy read but contained tons of good info.

It was a fun, but busy week and we are looking forward to relaxing and playing this week-end. Our weather is suppose to be nice tomorrow, and I think the park will be calling our name.

Enjoy your week-end, and You’ve Got This!!
