I needed two more Explode the Code books and the Beyond Five In A Row for when we read The Boxcar Children. We also got lots of fun stuff to supplement our other courses ~ sign language cards, kits to make Indian villages, Quick Notes, and teaching paragraph writing. I also found some historical novels where the reader gets to control the story and change the endings. Do you remember those from our childhood? I already read one of them to the children, and they are great.
I also wanted some new "juice" for our math shelves. I bought a second geoboard, pattern trays with blocks, centimeter cubes for the balance scale, skip counting activity book and the book, Apple Fractions.
This is one happy boy. He played with the geoboard for a long time.
These trays and pattern blocks are so much fun. The possibilities are endless and the kids are learning every minute of it.
I wish I had these when I was a kid. They will make it so much easier for the little ones to learn how to read music.
I can't wait for Monday. The kids are ready, too. Next week will still be a little different with swimming lessons every morning. But we will start adding in courses and should have a nice routine worked out within a few weeks. Happy Schooling!
