Mondays are our busy day (grocery shopping + claiming back the house from the weekend mess) so we keep the activities simple. Our English activities will actually be mostly playing with letters, talking about phonics and letter combinations and such as a natural part of the play. Here's what we did today:
-Got the fabulous Richard Scarry's ABC Word Book and Scout Kid's hand-me-down alphabet puzzle out. Dumped all the puzzle pieces on the floor.
-Flipped through the pages, finding the letters that matched the respective pages, talking about the letter sounds, and reading the words in the pages.
This was a very simple activity and I wasn't sure Scout Kid would be interested, but he enjoyed it. He was definitely more interested in this than last week's geography activity (although he did actually end up liking the continents song.)
