A Glimpse Into Kindergarten

I haven't done a wrap-up for Miss M in a while so I thought it was time.  Here are a few of the things we have been working on in Kindergarten. 

Miss M worked on some fall vocabulary using the fall Read, Build, Write cards from Homeschool Creations.  In this case, she used letter dice to build the words and wrote them on her dry erase board.

To make math a bit more interesting this year, I have been adding in some games after her Saxon lesson is done.  Some of her favorites have been the Frankenstein 100s chart from Lil Country Kindergarten,

and a puzzle I made her by cutting up a blank 100s chart she had to put back together.  We did her math problems on the dry erase easel one day this week, which was another hit.

Miss M enjoyed making a clay tablet and writing in cuneiform on it as part of our history lesson.  Doing these hands-on projects is not just fun, I can really see the connections it helps her make with our readings.

For art one day, both Miss M and The Bug celebrated nature by making leaf rubbings with the first leaves of fall.

We are reading Charlotte's Web for our current read-aloud, and Miss M and The Bug are both enjoying it.  The Boyscout just finished Fahrenheit 451 and is moving into Animal Farm, so I guess we have an unintentional barnyard theme right now in literature!
