Elephant & Piggie

Robin continues to work on pre-reading skills.  He does very much enjoy being read to, especially books which are humorous.  One of our favorite authors is Mo Willems, especially the Elephant & Piggie books.  They are at about the level of simple Dr. Seuss in terms of number of words and vocabulary, and quite sophisticated in the emotional subtlety conveyed in the character's expressions.  We also like finding the pigeon somewhere in each book.  I think they're great!

Today we read a book about jazz that came with a cd showcasing each of the instruments in a typical jazz ensemble.  

Robin continues to use Saxon Math K.  Recent concepts include identifying pennies, ordering numbers 0 - 10, and ordinal numbers up to fourth.

We read a book about amazing animals, and Robin is intermittently watching a documentary series about mammals.

We read a book about in-line skating and Robin was inspired to go in-line skating for the first time in a while.  He's also been on several long bike rides recently.
