Lots of trips to the science museum, especially the space exhibits.
Jordan did a preschool camp at the Art Museum, which meant the other girls and I did daily tours of the exhibits.
Continuing with gymnastistics
Getting ready for their uncles wedding in September
Playing around with bells.
Swim lessons & the pool.
Alex is now working on grade 6 EPGY for language, and mastered fractions (add/sub mixed numbers with unlike denominators)- I do still need to remind her to simplify her final answers.
and Jordan is coming along with her phonics and recently learned the silent e rule. We're on lesson 66 of OPGTR She also loves working with cuisinaire rods and had me create this video of the many ways to make 9, to share with you. Lastly, I highly recommend this ipad app that focuses on gentle play with number bonds using virtual rods.
