School Year 2011-2012, Week 2

"Baby Girl's" Alpha Dough letter C

"Bug" shows some of the things we found for his Sonlight Science
"Doodles" is currently studying the human body using Sonlight Science 5. She is really enjoying it. Most of her work is done through reading and activity sheets. I am very pleased with how much she has learned so far. In addition to daily Bible reading and memory verses, we are also reading The American Indian Prayer Guide. It is very interesting. We have completed the following books for history/geography and read-alouds so far: Walk the Worlds Rim and Pedro's Journal (Apple Paperbacks). "Doodles" has completed her independent reader Om-Kas-Toe: Blackfoot Twin Captures Elkdog and "Bug" has completed his independent reading book The Boxcar Children (The Boxcar Children, No. 1) (Boxcar Children Mysteries). We are still reading through Story of the U.S.A.: Book 1 Student Explorers And Settlers. This week we started our new read-aloud The Witch of Blackbird Pond. "Doodles" is independently reading Pocahontas and the Strangers (Scholastic Biography) and "Bug's" independent reading book is The Apple and the Arrow. Baby Girl worked on letter C last week and we read The Cat in the Hat. She is working on letter D this week. As you can tell, we are very busy, but we're enjoying all the learning that we get to do...well, most of the time!

I am looking for an simple alphabet led curriculum...are you using something particlar? I would love to have something that had suggested activities to do with letters...especially hands on stuff for my 4 year old. He counts well and says ABCs well, but is struggling to recognize the letters. I am thinking more hands on things might help him form connections :)
