I gave him 3 sheets to start with and soon will have him match lowercase pins with uppercase letters. Great fine motor practice, too.
We wrote in our journals yesterday and I had the boys select their favorite animal out of a tub and they were to record facts about the animal. Though most of our facts are very basic right now I hope both boys grow to have a love for writing (and reading) nonfiction.
Remi chose a tiger and he had so many things to say about his tiger. I opened our writing time with asking, "Remi, tell me about your tiger" and he just took off.
Nana was not to be left out of our "cross out" game yesterday. I hadn't printed her off a sheet to do, but after the boys got their turn she was not backing down from trying it out herself. I love that she loves to learn. She is passionate about work and it's sooo darn cute.
All I did was print out a sheet of pumpkins. She only had 8 on her's but the boys had 30. When I said the word, "cross" they were to put one line through the next pumpkin. Once we were all done we counted the pumpkins while touching them with one finger (one to one correspondance). Or course Nana and I did ours together, but the boys did their's on their own.
