We also talked about how a balloon can show how our prayers go up to God and attempted to make a scroll. We obviously fail at following directions as this didn't go over too well. But the whole prayer is a balloon and incense is like a sweet smell to God that the lad could understand. :)
I got him out on his bike because I want him biking decently well before we go on vacation this year as he's outgrown the trail-along bike.
Then we worked on Joyce Herzog Scaredy Cat reading system. He worked on mirror words, finding commonality in words and then figuring out how to say them and then to come up with new words with the same sounds in them. Then he took a speed drill. he completed all the words in 3.20.1. We'll do it again in a couple of days and see how he does with pronunciation of that list of words. He's starting to get it though he's easily "ACK!!! I can't do this mom". And I just need to continue to remind him that he can do it, he just needs to slow down and think.
He managed to complete a whole sheet of math facts this morning in 2 minutes. All correct and complete. earned one free dig in his treasure box for doing so. "Mom.. I worked HARD at that today". :) WOOT WOOT! We have improvement. Really like being able to use the sheets from Softschools.com.
