Homeschool Kindergarten Lesson Plans - Week 10
I've found a fun way to let my twins work on spelling and allow H (2 years old) to learn his sight words. H enjoys watching Preschool Prep's video series: Meet the Sight Words (which was also how L and E learned 40+ sight words by age 2.5), but the girls complain that its a "baby show". To solve the problem I handed them each a small clipboard with paper and a pencil and told them that they had to see if they could spell all the words that appeared. This is a great way for them to practice spelling and handwriting, and to keep them engaged while their little brother watches his "word show".
For our read-aloud book, we are still reading The Witch Family. I've had a cold all week so our nightly read aloud time has been shortened to help preserve my voice.

E even decided to make up her own math problems using some plastic stir sticks that I found when cleaning out the homeschool supply closet. She arranged the sticks to make an addition problem and then wrote out the equation and solution on a piece of paper.
