Learning Notes - Week of 8/19

We began doing school "lightly" on 8/13...Ryan is quickly working through the WP LA program, he pretty much knows all of his letters and their sounds - I am just having him do one page of handwriting practice for each letter (capital and lowercase) per day, we are doing most of the other phonics stuff (ETC & Jump Right into Reading) verbally. MUS primer is also mostly review for him so far.

  • Lang Arts for Little Ones 2 (Queen) - lesson 4
  • practiced writing our phone number from memory, learning correct way to answer phone


  • MUS Lesson 4 (rectangles), page 4A & 4D (review)
