Kindergarten Reading

Sitting down to write a post is always a delightful surprise.  Yes, I know that sounds weird but I love going through the pictures and watching as a pattern to our work unrolls.  This week I am seeing an emphasis in reading and language.

Working on ending sounds from the Montessori Print Shop.  These cards are a free download.

Matching cards and labels, free from Montessori Materials.

Reading a sentence from our You Can Read  printables.  Free from 1+1+1=1

Coloring in a You Can Read card.

Computer time on Starfall.

We have also been continuing our work with the geometric solids, I think K almost has the names down, a few more lessons and then she'll have it. I think next week we will work on drawing and coloring the shapes.

I also see another pattern unrolling as I look at our pictures and recall past posts, K is always in the kitchen.  Here she is baking muffins with her brother.  I think I showed this in a previous post of B's but K needs her fair share as well.  I cannot say enough about giving them each a mini muffin tray, it was totally hassle free and fun.  I don't know what brand of trays these are but they are wonderful, I dug them out of a friend's give-away pile and really like them.  We had had some mini pans before and they were terrible, so if you have terrible pans don't give up, good pans can be found.

Also on the practical life side of things, we did a bit of bead stringing and bracelet making which I now realize I don't have a photo of.

Thank-you to my new subscribers and lurking readers, I appreciate your kind words and enjoy reading your comments.  Please say hello if you are visiting because I would like to follow your adventures in homeschooling as well.  Enjoy and Blessings to you and your families!

Great activities, as usual! I love your mini muffin trays. They remind me of the great memories I had with the mini bun pan my mom let me use as a child (I had similar pans for my kids, too)! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page:
