Weekly Recap 9.27.15 – 10.3.15

The Plans for the Week: We did about half! That tells me it was a little too ambitious. I’ll consider that tomorrow when I come up with the next weekly plan.

My husband went out of town this week, so we were on our own for 3 full days. Add to that a skin infection that knocked off our plans for 2 days, and we didn’t get through all the things I wanted to.

And that’s okay!

Here are some of the things we did this week, with links to the corresponding blog posts:

SUNDAY:

  1. Worked on the USA map puzzle
  2. Practiced lowercase cursive (via a matching game… see below!)
  3. Watched the lunar eclipse on the computer and went outside to find the moon (too much cloud coverage)

Letter Matching

MONDAY:

  1. Leaf matching activity
  2. Practiced pouring water and scooping Cheerios
  3. Color matching with beads
  4. Tried matching the numbers 1-5 with quantities 1-5 << This one was not successful this week! As you can see below, I put 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 objects in 5 different bags. I wanted Alexander to identify how much objects were in each bag and then put the correct number next to the bag. Well, that didn’t work at all. So I tried asking him, “How many spoons (or trains or whatever) are in this bag?” And he just wanted to open the bags and take out the objects. I think the problem is that there were too many components/goals at once. I should try scaling back and work toward this activity in the future!

TUESDAY:

  1. Worked on animal flash cards. I added more animals since the last time we played, so he enjoyed that.

WEDNESDAY – FRIDAY:

We did the best we could! We read and did a lot of puzzles. We went to the grocery store and did more cooking than usual. But I was tired, he was sick, and that’s when daddy was gone.

SATURDAY:

  1. New activity: Twisting Practice!

As you can see, we did a few things that were on the plan and a few things that were not. Ultimately, I need to leave a little more wiggle room in my weekly plan. But I refuse to be goal-less! We’ll have plans each week that span different learning categories. And we’ll do what we can, with room for extra unplanned activities!
