Birthday in the Family

Robin celebrated his sister's 4th birthday today!  He was very excited about gift giving and cake.

Robin tested out of several lessons of Saxon Math 2.

We began using Explode the Code to work on Robin's phonics skills.  He tested out of the first book (A) but needs to work on the second book (B).  He's having trouble with sound/symbol correspondence - he clearly 'gets' isolating initial sounds of words, but he has a hard time taking an identified sound: '/f/' for example, and then naming and writing down the letter 'F'.  So we're going to do some work on that - he does thrive on repetition!

We read to him, including these books: The Demigod DiariesThe Demigod Diaries by Rick Riordan
 and
The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, #1)The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

He wrote in his journal.

And drew.

Robin swam, skateboarded, scootered, biked, and went to the skate parks several times.

He attended his Religious Education class, which focused on soil.  And went fishing.
