I guess another name for the title of this post could be " A Day in the Life of DJ'. Homeboy put in much work, and showed me he stills loves to work on practical life skills.
A much needed repeat of the Small Bead Frame doing 3 digit addition(dynamic) was given. DJ's deal is remembering place value. For example if the nine is in the tens place while using the frame he will forget to add the 0 to make it ninety and then it becomes confusing to him because he will do the same for the hundreds, etc.
I think he has the hang of it now(fingers crossed).
We had fun talking about Fact vs Opinion which was a new concept for him. We had a great discussion that I know he enjoyed. It went something like this... Tell me a fact about Ball Pythons and I will tell you my opinion about them. He stated that when Ball Pythons get nervous they form a ball shape with their body, which is a fact. I told him that in my opinion Ball Pythons are the scariest snakes in the world. Right away he caught on to what is Fact and what is an Opinion.
Rulin' The Roost.
When he finished with the Fact vs Opinion sheet he reminded me that we were to make cookies for tomorrow's party.
Inspired by the cookies he went ahead and prepped the party games for me too!! DJ did a nice job recruiting some helpers to help him punch out the perforated hearts
He went in my stash of trays and containers and placed the BINGO items together:)
When the cookies were cooled he was excited and said " We should really bake everyday!". He loved frosting them even though he probably won't eat one of them.
I love that my kids can do their own Valentines now!!
After all the party planning was done he ended his work period with working with the parts of the stomach.
Finally at one o'clock he took his lunch break.
