Math is becoming one of her strong interest now. She has shown mastery in preliminary activities that come before the Golden Bead Materials. Janessa is skip counting all on her own by twos and tens it is so cute.
To reinforce color words we have been reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?
Shuna P's shop at Teachers Pay Teachers.
I have tried to get Janessa excited about our Speech time, but she refuses and it is not helping when it comes to verbalizing phonetic sounds. Whenever I turn on the music to begin our Speechercise she becomes agitated. She is very much aware that her words are sometimes not clear to others. It is trickiling over to her reading and I have even tried to do this with her away from other children. Any suggestions are welcomed!
Janessa was successful at blending words in groups of families, she enjoyed making her at family book.
We also finished reading Dinosaurs Before Dark. This was Janessa's first chapter book read aloud and she really enjoyed it. I can clearly see that her comprehension of story elements have improved, and look at that handwriting it is just awesome. We did the Write to Read together, I sounded out the word and she wrote the sounds.
This week also marks the end of our Fall semester. Next week I will be presenting the Golden Bead 45 Layout, at and an family reading work, a map unit and more art work requested by Janessa.
