K math - Many skills!

I love the program so far, but had been hit by some of the "this isn't taking long, how can she be learning much" jitters in regards to math. DH and I were talking about how the school year was going so far, and I was explaining what we do with the 100s chart & sticks, the calendar, and incorporatin...

Re: Other Ideas for Kindergarten

I hide the letter of the week for my 3 1/2 year old to find. Thanks for this great idea! For the first week, since DD was already sounding out some simple CVC words, I hid the letters S-U-N on sticky notes around the house for her to find. Then she tried them in different combinations until she hit...

Really enjoying MFW K

DD already knows all her letters and sounds, so we've begun the blend ladder portions early. The review is helping her reading fluency quite a bit! The handwriting component is...

Twisting them apart normally gives new moon and full moon, then just use a knife to spread/cut the filling to make the other phases.
