I helped her spell crouton because she gets stressed out trying to spell unfamiliar words. For the other words, I just helped her stretch them out and then she wrote the sounds she heard. If left to sound them out herself, she tends to rush through the word and miss more letters. I still have her practice spelling on her own but I think it helps her to have me set an example.
I see hols, a scware, bron (holes, square, brown)
I her nuthing. (here nothing)
I smel spiseis. (smell spices)
I fel bumpus. (feel bumps)
I taste spise and crunchy.
One of our advent activities this week was supposed to be baking gingerbread men, but I forgot to buy the stuff, oops! We improvised and made gingerbread ornaments.
It was super simple to make.
- Cut out gingerbread shape from thin cardboard (we used a cereal box)
- Paint on thinned out glue
- Sprinkle with any combination of cinnamon, nutmeg & ginger, let dry
- Decorate with glitter glue and puffy paint
My camera died before I got a picture of the completed project, I will add one after I charge it.
This week we also made a paper bag scrap book for C's daddy and had our first Tea Party Tuesday. I wrote a separate post for each of these, you can check them out by clicking one of the images below!
