RRSK Ff

This week we did John 3:16, and instead of making up my own verse tune, we used the tune from Seeds Family Worship {Eternal Life, on the Seeds of Faith CD}. In the printable set, I offer 2 versions, the KJV from the book and the NIV from the CD…be sure to print the ones you want for each page that has the verse on it!IMG_6356

I am not sure if I have ever shown a photo of his current work area, here he was working on one of his pages, you can see he is not actually sitting at his desk in this shot, his actual desk is off to the right, he is sitting at his workbox shelf.  I hang up his RRSK and his YCR stuff together now.  His completed work gets hung up on the cork boards over his desk.IMG_6384

Gluing the verse, we did this one in strips, since it was so long…IMG_6392

Glittering his sight word {even though he already knew it}IMG_6436

Reviewing our past sign language letters and working on the letter Ff, I really need to laminate a set of these!

Here he is singing for you, if you don’t recognize the tune, be sure to download the Seeds version, it is wonderful!

We used unit 12 from You Can Read.  Here’s a glimpse into some of the You Can Read work he did.  I don’t have many photos because he is doing a lot of the work independently now while I am working with PacMan. 

He decided to try a highlighter for tracing and really enjoyed this.IMG_6396

Finding words in sentences in the dry erase center, still one of his favorites.IMG_6593

Stamping his words ~ not one of his favorites {YCR add-on}…IMG_6446

One thing I really love about Calvert, is their phonics readers.  They have a strong phonics approach to teaching reading and their phonics readers are wonderful.  They take a word family and the simple sight words a child has already learned and make a simple book.  For the next book, it combines the word family from the previous book and a new one, plus the known sight words.  There are 20 books all together.  As far as I know you cannot buy them as a stand alone set, at least not new ~ I have seen them on eBay and Paper Back Swap.

Each book has a signature page in the back for the child to read it to different people and get them to sign it.  We have a 3 person “rule” meaning he has to get at least 3 signatures!  He likes the challenge, here he is earning one from Baba and one from Pac Man!

IMG_6424  IMG_6432

We got out our Alphabet Sounds Box, worked with 3 different sounds…IMG_6726

He is VERY into addition facts and is miles ahead of his K curriculum, so we just do our own thing.  He has memorized his addition facts {after learning the process itself quickly}, in a way Pac never did!  Here is is working with our math facts file folder game.  He looks at the fact and puts it in the correct pocket…IMG_6629

He has access to a web program called First in Math, he loves this and here was working on addition facts also!IMG_6438

One of his all time favorites, Guidecraft’s City BlocksIMG_6560

The monster sensory bin was a big hit all week.  Krash didn’t get into creating monsters but loved using the materials for all sorts of activities.IMG_5120

He really enjoys the fraction work in the Kindergarten Printables.  Seeing fractions on Mike was no exception…giggles all around!  We got out our pizza fraction game to use as an example while I was using the teaching sheet before he went to dot paint the other sheet.  He really liked the pizzas as examples!IMG_5243

Then it was off to dot paint!IMG_5247

He plays iPad school almost daily, here he was showing Ladybug Kneebouncers for the first time.  He loves to teach her things on the iPad!IMG_4938

Krash takes gymnastics now and LOVES it.  He is also progressing quickly.  I am amazed with how little he could do just a couple of months ago and what he can do now, and with such strength and confidence.  He is a little powerhouse!
