I read to him, too.
The math lessons this week involved learning to play War, which I'm pretty sure he already knew. And we worked on counting and I think he's ironed out his avoidance of 15 and his uncertainty about transitions from 20s to 30, 30s to 40 etc. We read a book about shapes and opposites.
Robin drew a birthday card for his uncle.
We read a book in Spanish.
Robin did some exercising. We read a book about running.
We read books about sharks, animals, pumpkins, and bugs.

We visited a homeschool play-group at a rec center gym in Philadelphia this week. Robin loved it! They had these scooter-like things with a flat plastic seat, three wheels, and a handle-bar in front of the seat. You sit on the seat, put your feet on the handle-bar, and hold the ends. When you wiggle the handle-bar side-to-side, you move forward. If anybody knows what they are called, tell me! We also visited a homeschool coop, which Robin was a lot less enthusiastic about.
We read a book about peace illustrated entirely with quilts which he found very interesting.
Robin's Saxon K math this week included making various different types of patterns and practicing with word problems.
I read to Robin.

Robin took one of the 'assessments' in Saxon Math K today. It was to sort and then graph pattern blocks. I was quite impressed by the ease with which he did this. He wouldn't have known how before, but he sure does now!
I read to Robin and he continued to work on learning short-vowel words.
We read a book about Buster (from the TV show Arthur) visiting Chicago.
A book about being sick and how to get better.
And books about the stone age and a woman pirate from the 17th century British Isles. He also watched some of a documentary on WWII.
Robin did lots of walking, jogging, scootering, and strength training.
We read parts of a book about how things work.
