Letter V Week

Letter Formation/Pre-Writing
Tracing the letters with his write and wipe cards and Letter Tracing Pages from 1+1+1=1
Practicing writing in his sand box.  (So they kind of look like Us rather than Vs... he'll get there.)
 Do a Dot Markers on the Dot Letters from Confessions of a Homeschooler
 Using his Build a Letter Templates and HWWT pieces. First he built the letters on the templates, then he built them by themselves.
Building letters with pattern blocks.  Templates from Confessions of a Homeschooler. (I couldn't decide which picture I liked better)
Letter Maze
Cut and Paste Phonics Hunt
This was the first week I left all the pictures together in a grid, instead of cutting them into strips for him (on his insistence).  I'm glad I listened to him, because I didn't think he was ready for that yet.  He did a great job though!
We're still doing our Alphabet in Simple Science, and this week was V for Volcano.  I'll post all of the science activities later this week!

Sensory Play
As part of our volcano activities, we made a volcano out of salt dough.  After it "erupted" Xander played in the dough with his dinos for a long time!
 I attended a particle physics class for science teachers and brought home these fun rainbow spectrum prism glasses. I also brought home a spectroscope, but the glasses made it SO easy to see the different colors emitted by lights.  I got out some finger LEDs and he entertained himself for such a long time!  I wish we would have had them when we did our L for Light week!
