The letter "K"...

We are rolling along in handwriting...except for the letter K. I'm not sure what it is about this particular letter, but Annie is having the hardest time with it. We are building it with wood pieces, using the mini chalkboard, tracing, etc., and I know it will just click one day, just not today. I just feel bad for her...she is so good at forming letters, and this bothers her that she is having trouble with this one. We finally left it alone and jumped into reading and math! :) You can see what I'm talking about in these photos. Poor thing. ;)

She read a whole book to me today, which made me so happy! I asked her to just read me one page, then another page, and sure enough she read the whole book! We just need to work on some sight words and then she'll be on a roll.

In math, she is still reviewing even and odd numbers, patterns, and she is learning about rows and columns.

In this photo, she laid out all of her dot cards, in no particular order, and then put a red tile underneath the even numbers and a green tile underneath the odd numbers. Then, she put all the dot cards into order from least to greatest (she's learning those terms) and again, placed the tiles under even and odd cards. From that, she was able to see the pattern of even, odd, even, odd, etc.
