Tt - Turtle Homeschool Highlights in MFW

This week was a pivotal week, we started reading (kinda).  This week we started to learn how to blend letters, and read our first word "sat".  Caleb was especially proud of his paper!

Our theme for the week was Tt - Turtle.  Our bible words were "I don't quit, I persevere!"  It was the perfect word to learn before beginning to read.  I've already been telling Caleb that he's going to have to persevere!

We also illustrated this poem that we found in the teacher's manual.  I was impressed that Caleb did it all himself (except for one arm of the man).

They finger painted turtles in the beginning of the week and then used them in our puppet show of "The Tortoise and the Hare".  The hare puppet came from First School

Our special snack was a marshmallow on top of a graham cracker, warmed in the microwave a tad.  Then we used candy corn to make a head and legs.  

The extra's in our lap books came from DLTK. I loved the Big T and Little t folders!

And lastly, all the books we read about turtles and perseverance.  Caleb really like Mike Mulligan's Steam Shovel.
