We continued our 'getting back on track' review today. Both of the boys have been so excited each day to play school. They love having a routine and schedule (as do I!). We do the same thing each morning when we start school so that they know exactly what to expect. 1. Evan gets all of the day magnets off the board. 2. We line them up in order on the table. 3. We sing the "Days of the Week" song. 4. Evan puts up the Today is, Yesterday was, and Tomorrow will be magnets and then he always makes some sort of design on the board with the remaining 4 magnets. 5. We say the Pledge of Allegiance. 6. Evan recites all of his verses as I point to each sticker on his Bible Chart and give the scripture reference. 7. We sing "Around the Circle we will go..." while running around the table. 8. Song ends with me falling on the floor and both boys dog piling me. 9. Then they both want airplane rides since I am already on the ground. 10. Then they get to put dinosaur stamps on their hands and legs. And that's all in about the first 10 minutes!
|They both love the dinosaur stamp part! I sure hope I can find more of these when the ink runs out! I can't believe it hasn't by now.|
|Alan finally figured out today how to stamp himself. He normally just wants to suck on them! He was so proud of himself and ran into the other room to show Daddy. From the school room, I could hear, "Daddy Daddy, ook, ook, my onsaur!"|
|Finding the matching words.|
|Evan caught all the green fish!|
|Gluing 'red carpet' all over the town map.|
|Covering all the streets with 'red carpet'.|
|Painting some other things that are red.|
Tonight before bed, Evan wanted Daddy to read "The Red Carpet"! I'm so glad that both the boys love to read. Even more glad that they love to cuddle while we read! I sure hope they don't grow out of that anytime soon!
