Sissy's Kindergarten Corner #1

Here are some of Sissy's first activities as an "official" kindergartener: 

She and her brothers made cut-out letter and number cookies.

Since we were talking about names in our My Father's World and Chrysanthemum lessons, they each got to cut out the shortened versions of their first names (and ages, since we had just a little bit of dough left).

She got to add another word to her Fancy Nancy Word Wall in her room. I got this idea from Creekside Learning. Perfect for my sparkly girl. She has to totally know a word - how to read it and spell it before she can add it. Right now, she only has no, Mom, Dad, her name, and her 3 brother's names...we're working on it!

Proud that she finally completed her upper and lower case matching game, she wanted me to take her picture. I don't know why this was such a torturous activity for her. I do know that she hates working on activities alone. She has about a 30 second attention span on her own. She prefers to be chattering away with someone the whole time. And what I know about her is...she really doesn't like to think. She likes her brain to be a happy place full of sparkles and rainbows and dancing, and she does not like to bog it down with critical thinking. For real.

We have worked through a lot of the Phineas and Ferb printables from 1+1+1=1.

She completed the last of her summer camps and activities. Here she is making a bracelet at the Mother's Day Out program in our local arts academy.

She is working through Adventures in My Father's World, along with her older brothers. 
They made Viking paper dolls and ships this week.

She has been working through her 
Modern Curriculum Press Mathematics book
 and Hooked on Phonics Pre-K Letter Sounds.
Some of her other activities this week are here and here.
