Mommy School ~ A-J Review and Kk is for Kite

We reviewed the letters A to J yesterday.  Kai can confidently match the uppercase and lowercase letters, and pick the correct letter when I say the letter sound.

Today, we read Follow Jo's Kite and Kai enjoyed finding Jo's kite on each of the pages.

We followed this up with a kite craft.  

Kai also worked on some kite printables (and being his playful self most of the time!).

Mommy School ~ Jj is for Jungle and Jacket

Since we just came back from summer vacation, I decided to take it easy with Kai for the letter Jj which we did over a few days.

Jj is for Jungle

We read “Walking through the Jungle” on the first day.  I put out felt animals found in the book and gave them to Kai to use as retelling pieces.  We also made movements like what the little boy did in the book.

We followed this up with a “who lives in the jungle” worksheet and a jaguar craft.

On the second day, Kai did a dot-marking page and a letter identification page.

Jj is for Jacket

Today, we read “The Jacket I Wear in the Snow”.  I placed the sequencing cards in the pocket chart and Kai picked the matching card as we read the book.

We made a jacket craft afterwards and called it a day!

First Day of School 2014-2015

It’s hard to believe that summer vacation is over!  Where did time go?

I now have a 2nd grader and a kindergartener.

I managed to get a glimpse of Belle’s class this morning during drop-off.  She was thrilled to have one of her besties to be in the same class as her.  

Keefe seemed comfortable with his teacher and classroom.  I think it’s because he has the same kindergarten teacher as Belle!

  This was the book that they read in class today:

Keefe completed a first day book after school and I helped him complete his first day of school interview.

We're off to a good start so far so fingers crossed for a great school year!
