Pegasus loved this movie. He’s also familiar with it. He was extremely excited to write his letter to Santa.
I haven’t been doing much formally for this one. I’ll put music on and he’ll dance to it unprompted. (repeated from last week)
He has been diligent about practising his scales and doing the exercises from the book. He also says out loud what the scale letters are as he plays them.
We’re on break for now.
We alternated between listening to videos for the days of the week and months of the year (M, W, F), and attempting to put them in order with the pieces of paper (days on Tuesday, months on Thursday). He sang along unprompted. He didn’t need any prompting with the days of the week this week.
He enjoys doing this activity and completed it on the second day this week. He’s working on making his letters smaller and more contained.
Counting objects/math-type activities
He did well on his counting. He didn’t need help with the printing of the numbers.
We didn’t read last week’s French books. Sickness took over our household.
Write letter to Santa – Santa sent the letters for both kids to the printer at the end of last week. Pegasus was super excited, but reluctantly agreed to wait until Monday to fill it out. He was very enthusiastic about writing it and worked very hard to fill it out.
Geography – we sat down with an atlas and I explained how to use it and how everything affects everything else. Pegasus was very enthusiastic and remembered the Rockies long enough to tell Éric when he got home from work. While sitting on my lap, he thought that the US being called Canada’s pants was hilarious. 😉
Bake cookies – we have 8 types of cookies we want to bake this season. This week, we made my grandmother’s shortbread. I had planned on making a second cookie on the Friday, but both kids were sick, so we left it at just the one for this week. He already understands about the measurements, but I got to explain how to be precise (to my standards). We got a little messy. 😛
