We were very busy this week getting Selena’s fair projects all finished up before they are due next week.


We worked on the letter A more this week, and made playdoh letters.

From the pictures this week, it looks like we had more fun than school work…. And of course we all know that couldn’t possibly be the case :).  We worked on fair projects and math books, and read some fun dinosaur books.


Sunday fun babysitting some friend’s kids.


Finally the tooth fell out!

Not pictured is the first of the year assessments that I did.  Selena read sight word lists so we know what she knows and what we need to work on.  She also did some timed math sheets with her addition facts.
