This was the first week we got to use the fabulous 1+1+1=1 program, since I am going in A-Z order instead of the order that Carisa recommends.I know I'm such a rule breaker =) Anyway here is what we did
Cricket's verse for the week was:
Even a child is know by his deeds. Proverbs 20:11
Cricket had trouble memorizing this one too, but we talked a lot about what it meant especially when we were having "bad" days. As always she enjoyed all the verse related activities though. Cricket colored the memory verse page, and cut and taped the words of the verse together. I think the taping is her favorite.
In addition, from the Raising Rock Stars E printables Cricket completed the following activities: getting ready for E tracing sheet; discussed doing good deeds; where is the egg craft; and used the vocabulary words for our weekly chart. Note: These are only some of the activities provided in the download.
Cricket really liked the where is the egg craft, and we had such a good time learning about positional words.
Did I mention everything I already discussed is available for FREE at 1+1+1=1. Carisa graciously and generously provides the entire letter downloads once she blogs about doing the lesson with her kiddos. She posts them earlier along with other goodies at her Members Only site. Plus, she has created Powerpoint lessons to go along with each letter that are only available for members. To access everything on her Members Only Site you only have to pay a one-time fee of $10. This is was so totally worth the money for me! (I feel like I'm writing a review or advertisement for her site here, but I truly just love it)
Back to Cricket. We did the powerpoint for the letter Ee and Cricket loved it. We ended up doing it more than I planned and it really reinforced what we were learning. It also renewed Cricket's interest in computers overall, and we made grand progress this week.
