Our days are busy from the beginning to the end and Tuesday was no different. Because we all did not have time to use the various "centers" we had fun with them again this day. Then we started the morning with a cutting exercise. They are getting very good with this, but practice practice, practice is the thing.
Then, I put some items into a couple of bags and handed one to Brigham, first. He poured each of the items onto the table, then thought a few minutes and started to tell us his story. There were two different dinosaurs in the bag along with a piece of string and four craft sticks, a flag , two jewels, and four green soldiers. His train of thought was no where near what I would have done with these items, but he sure had a story to tell.
Then I handed the next bag to Avery. In her bag was a snowman on a sled, a yarn snowball, a kaliedoscope, Once again, I would have gone another direction, but each had a cool story to tell us about.
I have been reading "easy read" books lately to get them to sound out the words. This ah-choo book was lots of fun We will read it again Thursday to see if they can remember the words they have already said.
The kids really had a good time with the Boggle junior. Each team was given four words to spell, such as dog, cat, car, bird, duck, etc and they needed to find the letters to spell the word, then tell me the word. It was a great success.
