Thanks to paperbackswap.com the boys got, this past week, The Children’s Book of Hero’s. Big Brother loves it. He sat down and looked at all the pictures and has chosen a different story each day, and paid attention. (Character Dev)
Got a couple of new books today, fitting our theme of making our reading time a bit more meaningful (gotta love that 4 for the price of 3 deal on amazon.com).
- The Mission of Addition
- The Action of Subtraction
- How Long or how wide
- One Hundred ways to get to 100 A big goal right now with us is to get Big Bother counting to 100, and after that counting to 100 with confidence. Today, for the first time, he actually counted all the way to 100 with me as we counted the pictures / numbers in the book. (Mathematics)
Some photos from today:
Chores are more of a challenge if the puppy doesn’t like to give the broom to you.
Told you are boys work, Big is picking rocks the snow plow pushed off the gravel drive to earn money (we all work on this).
Little Brother is trying really hard to petal forwards and not backwards on the trike. Big was successful on the trike the first time he got one it at 25 months, but Little still really can’t move forward.
