The Walnut Acre Daily - Painting, Playdough and an IEP Meeting

Words to Live By

Psalm 97:1

The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad;
let the distant shores rejoice.

Preschool and Kindergarten Homeschool Fun


We started our work time this morning with prayer, reviewing our memory verses and singing our theme song for this month.

They watched and danced to the song God Made Me Special.

 Then we read this action poem God Made My Face and colored the picture that goes with it.

Phonics and Reading

We did the D Lesson from Starfall and then read the story Peg the Hen.  We read Pig Wig and we sorted the -ag and -at words into their family groups. We practiced writing the letter D and talked about the sound D makes and words that begin with D. And we watched First 24 High Frequency Words.


For math today we played number Bingo.

Dental Health Unit

We had fun with our dental health unit today. First we mixed some homemade paint . . . 

. . . and then we painted lots of pictures related to dental health. It's been a long time since we've done any painting so it was a nice change of pace.


Austin and Amanda's Homeschool Assignments

I didn't give Austin or Amanda any school assignments today because there were other things going on that just made it hard to fit  it in.

Other Books We Enjoyed Today

These are the books I read to CJ this evening before bed.

Outdoor Fun

We Are Going

I had an IEP meeting for CJ to go to this afternoon. My friend Jennifer came over to stay with the kids while I was gone. The meeting went well and I feel good about the changes proposed and the work the teachers are doing with him. And when I came home I found that Jennifer had done a wonderful job of cleaning up my kitchen and the playroom and had the kids sitting quietly watching tv. It was wonderful! I had just asked her to sit with them, not do all that picking up and cleaning.

This evening Austin went with his friend Aaron to the Antique Mall. Later Austin, Amanda and Michael went to spend the evening with my parents and sister.
