Morning Message

We have been doing our daily morning message for awhile now (see this post for when we began) and today I decided to shake it up a bit and have P write along with me. I used to do it this way when I taught school, although the whole class participated and we used a big flip chart. With one student it is much easier! P really enjoyed this and loved it even more when there were more blue letters (ones HE knew) than purple ones (ones he did not know).

We are going to need about 3 folders to fit all of our Thanksgiving stuff in by the time we are done! Today P worked on his “Draw, Write, Now” lesson, beginning the copywork for the Mayflower. He drew the picture yesterday. This is the first time I have actually had him complete the copywork and he did really well. I LOVE these books!
