You can download all of the printables for this unit FREE here on the main RRSK page, just scroll down until you see them!  We have backed off from doing all 10 of the provided activities in the RRSK units.  As he progresses, some items aren’t necessary anymore and either we skip them or go through them quickly.  My main goal in using the RRSK lessons is the Bible work and simple review of other K skills.

Here he is taping his verse together, he prefers tape over glue…IMG_1437

He likes the new RRSK Verse Check list.  He was excited to get his star for all of the verses he remembered.  He only struggled with Letter B, but after a few times, he remembered it!  IMG_1444

He completed the graphing activity and really liked this.  All those roll and graph games in Preschool Packs really helped a lot!IMG_1529

Here is Krash singing letter L for you, the tune is “London Bridge.”  This is a tricky one, he never quite got it, so I sang along with him.  We always continue to practice them even after the week is over!  The printable written out the way you sing it is here!

We used unit 18 from You Can Read.  Here’s a glimpse into some of the You Can Read work he did.  He didn’t quite grasp these words in one week, so we are using them again next week too.  Here he has his notebook set up, we use our Education Cubes inserts on the cover during the week and then transfer them to our cubes for word play.  IMG_1531

He was working on putting his words together…IMG_1534

He always loves BINGO…IMG_1535

He circled words using our dry erase activity board, then pointed them out by color and read them to me.IMG_1875

We began reviewing All About Reading Level 1 awhile ago, and Krash continues to make consistent progress.  You can read more about why we are choosing to review this homeschool reading program here in our “Current Curriculum” post {see FAQ}.

I wrote a lot about our initial thoughts and experiences with AAR in this Kindergarten with Krash post.

Recently we hit a big milestone in reading, lesson 16 in All About Reading which introduces the digraph “th.”  I knew this would be a bit tricky for Krash we we did the same lesson twice.  Thankfully he loved the egg flipping activity!

imageIt was Webkinz week for Krash and he loved it!  We brought all of our Webkinz friends down to the schoolroom for the week, which was a big treat for all of the kids!IMG_1522

He loved his Webkinz work, here he was writing a sentence about a frog.  He was intimidated at first, but once he did it he thought it was easy!  He is using a neat spacing tool I have had for years {here is a set of 20 on Amazon, but we bought ours individually at a teacher store}.  I use these when my kids are first starting to write sentences so they master spacing right off the bat.  You can easily use a popsicle stick for a spacer if you don’t have this nifty tool.  IMG_1431

He really liked matching the sentences to the animals…IMG_1519

Sorting rhyming words…IMG_1399

He did all of the printables, I just didn’t take photos!

He had tons of fun with the magnetic pattern blocksIMG_1622

We found a new fun website thanks to Pinterest, www.Cookie.com.  It has tons of cute games for young kids and the layout of the site is easy to navigate.  Krash has already found a few favorites.  PacMan was sweet and looked through it with him to help him find games he might enjoy!  Here he was playing “Counting Coins.”

iPad learning fun. Here he was playing Teach Me First Grade!  He has gotten so far in it!IMG_1391

I get asked a lot about our new case-it’s the Trident Kraken II and yes we love it! Educational iPad Apps here, also, iPad Apps-part 2!  The stylus we have that he uses sometimes is this one.
