Random 5 on Friday ~ September 27th

1.  We are really enjoying this fall weather and the great nature walks that go along with it!  Now it's time to start on our fall bucket list!

2.  I found a 5 week free trial of Reading Eggs, so I signed Elliott up last week.  He took the placement test so he didn't have to start at the beginning, and he seems to like it so far.  He even asks to do lessons on his own.  We're also doing a review of VocabularySpellingCity right now, and have a review of IXL about to start, that includes math and language arts.  We'll be all computer'ed out before long!

3.  I gave the boys the freedom to choose our next read-aloud, and they picked Winnie the Pooh.  We read it a couple of years ago, but they're really on the whole "Disney" kick right now.  I think they will enjoy it more this time around anyway, but I told them I'd read Pinocchio or Peter Pan when they're ready too.

4.  The boys have decided they want to build a playhouse in the backyard.  One wants it to be an actual "house" while one wants it to be a boat.  They compromised on a houseboat.

5.  Emory wrote his name!  He was very unsure about his M and R because they didn't "match" but I did the mom-thing and praised his effort, took a picture and slapped that beauty on the fridge!

  1. Love Winnie-the-Pooh!!

    My 5 year old is big into writing her name and she has also added copying down words that she sees on papers and books. She now slaps her work on the fridge or even tapes it to a wall!

  2. You've got great stuff going on! I will never forget the day my oldest wrote his name for the first time! :)
