1st Grade Fun

We are moving right along....finally feeling like we got into a groove!  Well....at least with Annabelle. :)

We finished another couple of books in Sonlight Core A.  We read Johnny Appleseed.  That was fun/nostalgic because we used YouTube to find the Disney's American Legends videos.  We watched Johnny Appleseed and Paul Bunyun.  We will go back and watch the other ones.

The next book we finished was The Hundred Dresses.  Such a good book on how to treat others and what making fun of and essentially bullying can do.  Also a good lesson on thankfulness.  We even had a good conversation about being content, sharing the things we've been blessed with and why do we feel the need to have so much 'stuff'.
I googled dress design templates and came up with these from the images.  I printed a few out and Annabelle had a really, really good time decorating them!  She didn't do 100, but probably would have if I had them printed out for her.

We learned a little about Central America.  We made a snack that could be eaten there.....tortilla chips
....and yummy fruit smooties.  The smoothies were yummy!  Great way to maybe sneak in some fruits and veggies to my picky eaters diet.
Moving along in Math-U-See.  Love how they explain place value.  Annabelle is pretty fluently reading 3 digit numbers now and I think is mostly understanding the place value concept......  next up addition and I really feel that she is ready for it now (and I'm ready to teach it as well!).
All About Reading game of the week.....
All About Spelling.....so excited that she is writing longer words finally and learning to sound more things out.  AAS has really taught her how to spell in a way that really makes her confident.  So proud of her!

Happy blogging.
