We have workboxes all packed and ready to go for tomorrow. On Wednesday, Lydia will not have workboxes exactly. She has zoo class in the am, and the boys will have light schoolwork due to the early medication checks we have to be at. Their appointments are at 5:30 am!!! This doctor is really good and worth leaving our house at 4:30 am to get there though. They will most likely be cranky and tired though. So tomorrow is workbox day, and Wednesday will be Science afternoon. We are going to watch an episode of Dirtiest Jobs that highlights germs and do a glitter germ experiment with handwashing. (Borrowed that from my friend Sarah.)
Caty's boxes: Most of her boxes have two activities in them. She can choose or do both.
Coloring with crayons on sandpaper.
Purpllinker from Timberdoodle.
Reading Eggs...and we added the next Biscuit book yesterday. She really likes those easy readers!
Beginning Geography book. Working on direction of N, E, S, W.
They are $6.95 a piece, and if you have an Educator's Discount card from Barnes and Noble...that's 20% off that price. I love all the Kumon workbooks.
We are finishing our penguin project. We are just going to talk about baby penguins and their nest.
For the boys:
They are working on the same Beginning Geography book. It's mainly for following directions. They have to follow the steps....and that is not easy for them.
Cut and paste activity.
pectrum Reading...Grade 1 Little Critter sheets. It's to help the boys with comprehension. For Lydia it's both comprehension and phonics. I love these books and going to start collecting them in different levels. They have all subject and grade levels. The boys will probably be moved to the next level by January if they keep progressing ok.
