We’ve been in transition mode. This means not that home schooling has stopped, but that it has changed and adapted to the current needs of our life. I’ve improvised in many areas of my children’s education. I plan on sharing more with you, but the following is just one example of such improvising.
We have a variety of flashcards ready to grab whenever we feel the itch. More on how I organize it all on our boat is soon to come.
Raspberry Bug picked the letter tiles up so I gave her the special blend flashcards from A Becka. I believe these go all the way up to a third grade reading level. Though we aren’t doing the full ABecka curriculum for first or third grade, the flashcards are still being used regularly.
We began by sorting the letters so we could find them easier than in a baggy.
I gave her a tray to work on ( my fancy broiler pan to be precise).
She drew a card and proceeded to sound out the word. Then she spelled the word in tile form.
Blueberry ball took interest soon after. He was able to make sentences with the words he drew.
This was a great way to review! It was even great for Raspberry Bug to learn some new blends.
What do you do when your children are in transition? I’d love to hear your ideas!
