Doing a J color by number
We did the next four Beginner Spelling Cards.  He seemed to struggle with the K vs C sounds, but we made it through!  Then we spelled bake without the cards.

Thinking Skills
Playing his Who Lives Here? Game
We did a few Little Math lessons and then Grandpa helped Xander use his new balance.  They compared different numbers of counting bears.
Painting some Js with porcupine painters.
We're still doing our Alphabet in Simple Science, and this week was J for Jurassic Period.  We didn't get to do many experiments, but we did a lot of dinosaur related activities.  You can check out the Jurassic Period post here!
Calendar Time
I have to confess, I am SO bad at doing calendar time consistently with Xander!  Maybe it is because we do not have a designated "school" time and our schedules change daily.  Maybe I'm just lazy and forgetful.  Regardless, I need to get better!  He enjoys his calendar and learning about the days and months.
Sensory Play
Here's a peek at our dino tub that we did for J is for Jurassic Period.
Just for Fun
Playing with Squigz in the tub.
