January 20 2012: Math and Game Boards and Nature

Fridays are Electronics Day in our house. Thomas and Lillian can use all the electronics they want with no time limits; including DVD’s and the computer.

But, we still had to get some work done first! Lillian had a math lesson focused on units. We’re working in the Math U See program. I love the concept of this.

Thomas was assessed today in kindergarten class to prepare his report card. He did fantastic. He is reading and comprehending at an end of second grade level. His behavior has improved a great deal too. Mrs. O’Connor is so proud of him and so am I!!!!

Sitting at my next desk creating tips for my new email newsletter; turned around and Thomas was dictating a blog post to Lillian for his website. He’s at the beginning stages of learning to spell so he still needs help with that part of it. Told him I would install a program for him where he speaks it and the program will type it for him. He LOVED that!

Thomas and I played a game of Parker Brothers – Sorry (amazon affiliate link) after dinner. Board games are so nostalgic for me. I grew up playing them all the time with my cousins. We had a ball and it was my FIRST time winning against him!

After that Thomas went back to watching one of his favorite shows, Popular Mechanics for Kids: Lightning and Other Forces of Nature (amazon affiliate link). He watches this over and over. There are quite a few in the series. I can’t understand why they stopped making these. The website isn’t even around anymore. He devours them, over and over and over!
