The Younger Kids

We’ve added a new student to our Academy.
Peanut is only 2, but she is quite precocious.
We are having fun with her,
even the boys love her being around.
On a lucky day we also have her older sister join us,
but usually she is at a private school during most days.

The Letter of the Week:  Ss

We did an all about Sunflower theme.

Learned about the life cycle of a Spider.

Made Scarecrows.

Discussed Stars and Space.

We sorted cereal, and played with stickers too!

The kinders began formal reading lessons this past week.

Andrew is beginning to be comfortable reading.  I am recognizing that it is time to delve into more interesting topics with him.

I look forward to starting our 2nd quarter.  Adjusting to some changes in the process.

I LOVE FALL!!!  It’s just finally getting cooler here, so I am hoping for another fall field trip.

We were able to hit the zoo recently.  The weather was beautiful.

How is your autumn flowing by?
