Cullen's ABC's- a video he watched on YouTube. At the end of each day, #1 would say along with Cullen, "And God saw that it was good!" and do hand motions. In the picture above, he's doing "good!" We also read the story of creation in his Jesus Story Book Bible. He did three catechism questions and really enjoyed doing them for Daddy!
handwriting worksheets and #1 practiced his name each morning. By Thursday he was tired of doing the same thing, so I told him if he wrote his name he wouldn't have to trace it anymore. So he did! It's the first time he's ever written his name by himself! #1 also did the first five lessons (the vowels) in Ordinary Parents' Guide to Teaching Reading. We did the lessons each morning and reviewed at lunch and dinner time. He did well, and I think we will be able to get through the consonants quickly in the next couple weeks.
Kumon book and counting to thirty. #2 loves to count too and would run into the school room when ever he heard his brother!
