Good Morning Ladies,

Last week you saw the Dental Health Unit I planned for Aria. For the most part, it went pretty well. There were a few things Aria wouldn’t try, and I didn’t force her. Repetition is on my side, I will keep trying until she does it.

This week I am introducing words and reading. She is only 3 so I don’t expect a whole lot at first. Again doing schooling at home will require a lot of patience. Stick to it.

Peddle Words Sheet (Monday)

These sheets are fun for kids. Making things fun helps them forget they are doing something educational as well. They place the pebble over the word that matches the picture. You can also cut these and use them as clip word cards. Use a clothespin to clip onto the right word. Since we don’t have clothespins we used pebbles. You can use beans, snacks, candy..whatever works. I am a firm believer in bribing kids to learn. Download this for free { HERE } { HERE } { HERE }

Word Maps with Scrabble Tiles (Tuesday)

These word maps are originally used magnetic letters or cardboard letters. I have scrabble tiles so I will be using those. This is another fun game to have your kiddos do. If you don’t have any of these items,  print off alphabet cards. Or laminate this printable and use a dry erase marker. I love these printables for their versatility. You can download yours for free{ HERE, } { HERE, } { HERE, } { HERE }

Say it, Read it, Make it, Write It (Wednesday)

This worksheet is really fun because you can do so much with it. The make it portion can be with scrabble tiles or playdoh. It may take a while before your kid can actually write the word out. Aria is too young for that but I write it for her and have her trace it. This helps her make the motions of writing the letter. Download yours for free {Here}.

Write the Words (Thursday)

We used the scrabble tile cards to play write the words. Again Aria is a little young for this but I had her go through the motions of spelling the letter and letting me help her write it.

ABC Mouse (Friday)

I love this youtube channel. It is cute and effective in it’s teaching. The songs are catchy and help the kids learn their letters. Their intro to reading section is adorable. I have Aria sit in my lap and we read the words together. You can find the channel {HERE}.
