Native American Unit: Day Two
We started with some find motor skill work. The girls had these cool sticker books their awesome mom had gotten them for Christmas (haha) so we used the prying the stickers off and putting them back on the page to help their fine motor skills
Plus lets face it, stickers are fun!
The we used our tweezers to pick up objects. We started with the glittery pom poms. Then we moved on to the beads. That was alot more difficult. John decided to stick with the pom poms.
John decided to start "reading" on his own. It was adorable! He was narrating the pictures for us.
Emma read her hooked on phonics book and two of her readers to everyone.
By then it was time for recess, but it was yucky outside. So we decided to use the christmas present our friends the Ridge's gave us and play indoor tag. The goal is to rip the tail off the hider. It was FUN!!!!
unfortunately, Mac is a herding kind of dog, and he would snitch on whomever was hiding. He can't stand for anyone to break formation.
We moved on to math, and we had a guest professor. Professor John joined us...he was a scream. When Chloe talked out of turn, he sent her to time out! She played along, but she would act all sad when he was watching, and then giggle when he wasn't looking.
Daddy is scheduled to read some of the Birchbark house to the girls after dinner.
