Starting Kindergarten

What Your Kindergartner Needs to Know: Preparing Your Child for a Lifetime of Learning (Core Knowledge Series)

Daily Learning Drills Grade K
Bob Books, Set 1: Beginning ReadersN started her first day of Kindergarten on Monday last week.  We made a big deal out of it and put and peal and stick white board up in our dining "room" and did a lot of fun stuff.  We've done it every day and have been doing a lot of reading from What your Kindergartener Needs to Know and doing pages from Daily Learning Drills  .  Plus I made a counter with beans and an empty egg carton that I wrote numbers in each spot.  We've also been slowly working on Bob Books.  And practicing cooking and doing things like jumping jacks, tag, sit ups, leg lifts and running at the track of a local school for P.E.  She also made a necklace out of beads leftover from when she made me a birthday necklace and some buttons from a shirt that turned into part of a quilt.  we've also done water color paints, a lowercase letter scavenger hunt (she had to find the cards with lowercase letters on them and match them with the template of uppercase letters and say the sound) plus we've been talking about the weather and strangers and trying to explain why we save money.  We have also been listening to the primary songs on CD for the primary program coming up.  And we have been talking about what it means to call Christ the good shepherd and trying to memorize the first article of faith and talking about where the articles of faith came from.
