Jenna can ride a two wheeler!

Jenna and Pat went to the park on Thursday after Jenna decided now was the time to learn to ride a bike with no training wheels. She practiced with Pat running behind her for a while and then came home.
The next night she rode home by herself! She started with Evans bike and by Sunday was riding on her pink bike too. Now she can ride anything!

Fairy Girl and Daddy went to the park on Thursday after she decided now was the time to learn to ride a bike with no training wheels. She practiced with Pat running behind her for a while and then came home.
The next night she rode home by herself! She started with her brother's (formerly hers) bike and by Sunday was riding on her pink bike too. Now she can ride anything!

The Letter A and B this week
















We read two stories this week and learned 2 letters - A and B. Both big and small letters at the same time as this is mostly review for Fairy Girl. The big focus is on how the letter is formed and what sound it makes.
We are also trying to build sequencing and memory skills. The stories are read one day and then I ask her to recall them. Elf boy helps :) Fairy Girl struggles with this a bit but we will see how it goes.
We reviewed short and long "A" sounds.
We started looking for curves and lines in things around us as a prelude to some form drawing.

We will be revisiting them throughout the year to introduce new concepts.
