Letter W 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.  Ws are hard...
I picked up this dry erase strip from Lakeshore.  Here he is practicing his letters.
Making W's out of foam crafting blocks.  You can download the templates here.
Q-Tip Painting (from 1+1+1=1).  This time we decided to do it with a washable ink pad instead of paint.
 Stickers 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.
Letter Maze
Play Dough Letters
Stamping some Ws on his alphabet stamping play dough mat.
Cut and Paste Phonics Hunt
We finished the first Summer Reading 100s chart.  Xander asked that I make him another with Anna, so I've added that.
Thinking Skills
Last month I visited a friend who is lucky enough to live 15 minutes from a Lakeshore Learning.  I picked up this Following Directions building set.  I seems to be a good level of challenge for Xander, difficult but doable.
Doing some Imaginets
This puzzle seemed to fit in well with our talks about the water cycle. 
Doing a Right Start Math lesson of combining two sets of tally marks.  This was one of the very few lessons that had a worksheet, but he did great!
We're still doing our Alphabet in Simple Science, and this week was W for Water Cycle.  Check back later this week to see everything we did.
He begged to use his Slick Stix again.  He ended up coloring the whole page and wouldn't let me cut the Ws out.
First of all Xander watched some Kids Start Spanish and The Magic School Bus Wet All Over in Spanish.  We also read Max y las nubes (Max and the Clouds) multiple times this week.

Playing Around
Xander recently decided that Magna-Tiles make good roads for little cars.  For the last week you've had to walk carefully in our family room because there are always new roadways everywhere.
