It seems that making time to blog is inversely proportional to the amount of nice weather we get, hence I have done zilch in the way of blogging for 3 or so weeks!
This week is going to get the dreaded list option and will probably be deathly boring to anyone but me!
Mon-Friday we have played on EC every day, on Monday and Tuesday Ot did some playing with magnetic letters and now knows and can say the sounds for letter sounds a-n so we’re 1/2 way throgh the alphabet. Tiger did some work on place value and is beginning to grasp tens and units. I think some Deans blocks would be very useful. We also did some reading and recapping on phonic sounds and long and short vowels on Mon-Wed. We have read every day and everyday Tiger has done some spelling and writing on a site we found on another blog which is fab. We have been doing lots of playing outside, pedaling,ball playing, checking on seedlings, plants, lots of talking about plants and how you get seeds, what the different parts are called their jobs etc and lots of tip top eating!
Monday and Tuesday
Went to the gym. Played in the garden.
Garden playing, flower picking and looking at the bits inside by pulling them apart.I went to the gym in the am for 50 mins again and mom stayed in the car with the boys who were both asleep.
Nanna looked after Ot and Tiger for the pm whilst I popped over to visit K and O. Was nice to chat, K had to go to the docs briefly so O and I had a walk round the town. Surprisingly O didn’t have any tears today, despite not having seen me for a while and K having to race to the loo as soon as she arrived at ours (quick say hello and 10 minutes play for the boys) so that was good.
The boys did garden playing, a walk to the coop and train track building with nanna
Went to Grasmere and got some seeds and netting for the veg patch as well as some broad and runner bean plants and a courgette. Tiger liked pushing the trolley around. When we got back we had dinner, the builders came and went through the estimate…lots of bits were missed off so we’re now waiting for a new estimate. When they’d gone we spent the rest of the afternoon and early evening in the garden with nanna doing playing an planting. Veg patch is looking much more like a veg patch now the bean canes (willow wands) are up :0)
Went swimming first thing then shopping at Sainsburys in the morning and playing in the garden and trip to Banners gate in the afternoon. Tiger peddled his go kart up to the duck pond and back and everyone had fun playing on the slides. Ice-creams all round and a walk in the forest then back home for tea and telly. Earthed up the potatoes today and Rich helped me to net over a large portion of the veg patch to deter the cats from ‘fouling’!
Went to Bromford Farm in the morning, lots of animal feeding, playing in sand pits and on tractors which was enjoyed by the boys. Went to Clarkes on the way home and got shoes and sandals for the boys. pm played in the garden (I had a nap) nanny and grandad came round at about 4:30 ish. Had a late tea, bath, tidied toys and sorted into drawers. Did a bit of talking about bits of flowers, names of bay animals, tractor peddling, ball throwing and catching, reading and talking about blood. Some role playing as doctors and super heros, car peddling and general fun and games.
I know I have foregotten stuff but this is the general gist!
