Our First Real Day of School!!!!!

Star woke up eager to begin when she saw the work boxes. We ate our waffles played outside then started with a special bag I made her with all new crayons, erasers, pencil sharpener, markers, ruler, and some treats. We reviewed the days of the week song and marked today on the calender, then posted the weather on our weather board. We moved on right away to reading , she wanted to keep going and going so we read the entire first box of our Bob books. I had only planned on doing one about patterns then working with the pattern bears to have her follow directions and recreate my patterns. Needless to say we didn't get to the bears, we may do them after we get home from the pool. Then we did practice writing, this week is letter "A", she wrote her name and traced numbers 1-20. We played a matching game to see if she could read number words and colors, not so good we need to work on this. Then we read The Ginger Boy Kid, Kissing Hand and Froggy Goes to School books. I did a treasure hunt to search for the gingerbread boy, and she loved this game, of course I had to read all the hints for her so maybe next time I will do a picture to go along with the words. That was it for now and it took only about two hours and she was so happy she wanted to do it all again!
