Alphabetical Order and “Bee Craft”

We cleaned the schoolroom this morning while listening to a book on tape. Isabel learned alphabetical order today. I wrote body parts on 3X5 cards such as, back, ear, spine, hand, etc., and had her put them in order.

I then read them a story. Luke wrote sentences incorporating his spelling words. Isabel practiced writing M and N. Luke started his new math lesson, adding money. Luke had us do a “bee craft.” He told us to draw a picture of a bee on one paper. Then draw the bee’s head on another paper, the bee’s thorax on another and the bee’s abdomen on the last and label them. I need to let him be in charge more. He LOVES teaching us things.
