So between the snow days, sick days and random in-services, February has pretty much become the Boogie Show. She's been home... a lot. And aside from all the Lego beastin', Smithsonian explorin', snow angel makin', Grandma facetimin' and coordinated routinin' with Dr. Daddy, homegirl has officially learned to read! #PreKStuntin'
Peep the video I shot for Momma-
Every day when she gets home from school (except for days with ballet or percussion), we learn 2-3 words (depending on her mood) using flashcards from THIS KIT. My sister bought it for her two years ago and we've been using it ever since-- first learning phonics to sound out easy, three letter words, like in this video from January 2014--
--and then onto sight words! It's an incredible feeling watching her read entire sentences... 'proud' doesn't even cut it. With patience, persistence and the help of the flash cards, posters and activities in the kit, Gia has learned to read, write, count to 100 and beyond, and do basic addition and subtraction. #kindergartenwinning
p.s. this is another great tool for learning phonics-- Montessori Crosswords
before she can play other games on my ipad she has to spell words first :)
p.p.s. Gma is home from the rehab facility and calling shots from Ferguson now. I can't get home fast enough! #FirstThingSmokin'
