We went to Carolyns house for some letter L crafts. The kids made lambs and painted ladybug picture frames!
|Daddy joined us quickly before work!|
clickstart. She can now tell you what sound it makes!
We spent a little while playing outside in some very cold weather
|Cait filled a peanut butter top with bird seed and sat down, determined to wait for a bird to come eat it in front of her.|
We enjoyed daddy's birthday with some plain chocolate cake (his request- blech!)
And here is Jayden's school report for last week on T4L.
So Cait has been hiding a little secret! She is sounding out some words! Jayden and daddy were playing PS3 when some words popped up. She pronounced "ENER" for "ENERGY" and "SENT" for "SENTINEL". The word "ALL" popped up and I asked her how to say that and she said "AHHH- mommy I don't know what sound that makes!" and pointed to the L's. So I said "Cait, you know what sound the L makes. What sound is it?" And she mouthed the "LLLLLLLLLLLLLLL" sound. Daddy was extremely impressed with his little princess! I have to admit, it really shocked me because even though we practice the sounds letters make, I was unaware she had the ability to blend sounds together. So we made a huge fuss and in true Caitlin fashion, she got aggravated when we complimented her and celebrated her good job. So anything we asked after that was met with shrugged shoulders, "I don't know" and/or guesses which she knew were incorrect. So I will be keeping a closer eye on my little sneaky girl who, just three shorts weeks ago, told me she quit the alphabet because it was too hard!
And in sad and growing up news, look who lost another tooth!
We have a very FULL calendar for spring! My beautiful baby boy is turning SIX!!!!!!!, we are continuing on with swimming, resuming soccer, joining a Homeschool coop which will meet 2x a month to start with, and hopefully getting funds together to sign Jayden up for Tball! Hopefully one of his wonderful grandparents want to help out with that for his birthday :D
