R Week

Today we are working on R in Mommy Preschool.  Last week was a fairly slow week with Mommy Preschool, but that was intentional.  The boys weren’t happy at their old school and I didn’t want to start Mommy Preschool on a sour note.  So we’re making it slow and fun (and a little sneaky).  I’m sneaking in teeny lessons in everyday things… like asking M to pick the small spoon from a soup spoon and a teaspoon for his yogurt this morning.  Or when T pointed out a “20” on a coupon on my desk, I asked him what came next… he proceeded to count to 29.  We kept going with a little prompting at 30, 40, 50 and 60.  Not bad for a three year old!

Q Week Begins


Mommy Preschool began this week, slowly but surely. Since last week was letter P at the boys’ old school, I figured it would be best to continue rather than start over with the alphabet. This was our first project (done on Monday): coloring a Q and gluing on pictures of words that start with Q. M loved it and did really well with it, T just wanted to color and play with the pictures. That was fine with me, M is really the one who needs to continue with preschool since Kindergarten is in sight.

Up next: writing and recognizing words.
