Pegasus had not watched this movie yet (under 2yo doesn’t count), so I was excited to see his response to this. He was enthralled.
As per usual, I didn’t do anything specific for this.
His scales are coming along nicely and he willingly practises both his scales and the pieces in the book.
We haven’t started this yet.
We kept up with these throughout the break, so he was still able to repeat these quite well. We are working on the day before and the day after any given day. The months of the year is going well. All months have proper pronounciation now, and we’re working on the month before and after any given month. That’s coming slowly.
We practised the seasons, but he still needs help remembering them in French.
He is working on leaving spaces between words (kerning). This is easier to do on the computer. 😉
Counting objects/math-type activities
He still has no problems with counting these, and I feel like his numbers have improved.
Math worksheets. He REALLY likes these and had a lot of fun with the more challenging one. He did them both on Monday because he was so excited to do them.
We got 4 new French library books this week. We read 2.
Nebula jar – This was one of my favourites from Dragon’s lessons. Pegasus chose yellow, red, and green. If I could go back and encourage him to pick a different last colour, I would. It seems to be making the entire jar a bit murky. On the positive side, we can always do this again after washing out the jar…?
Magnet experiment – We took out two powerful magnets and tested different materials (coaster, magazine, pants, blanket, different plastics, board books, and stacking cups). He also tested how many cups he could nest inside each other before the magnets didn’t hold (the answer is 6 – the magnets held on 5. His hypothesis was that 3 would be the max.)
Make spring rolls – Pegasus enjoys adding flavours, but cooking is not something he enjoys. Baking, however, is another story. Moving forward, I’ll be removing most of the cooking and adding baking. He burned his finger slightly on the pan when stirring, and got very impatient when rolling the rice paper. Dragon took over and she was better at it than Éric was!
