Sorting letter C words, into 2 groups {animals/not animals}…


Signing his name to the story he dictated to me.  He asked me to re-read his story to him many times, even days after we wrote it! IMG_4688


If you want early access to printables beyond what I have blogged about,


We used unit 9 from You Can Read.  Here’s a glimpse into some of the You Can Read work he did. 

He just loves this activity, can’t you tell?IMG_4478
Color by word…IMG_4658

Sight Word Search {this is a You Can Read Add-On}…


This is one of his favorites!  I chose 10 words he needed the most work on and pre-hid them in the rice.  He then had to dig them all out and graph them accordingly, using his dot paint.  Thanks again to Stephanie for this wonderful idea!

Here he is reading a Bob Book with me, using a jewel to help follow the words.  He is not enjoying the Bob Books as much these days, but we still use them every now and then. Mostly we do tons of phonics work on the dry erase board.IMG_4526

He definitely prefers the sight word readersIMG_4534

Tracing his words using our dry erase activity centerIMG_4686

Adding to his word caterpillar.  He re-reads the words up there to me, then we add any new words he knows.  The caterpillar really grew this week, suddenly a light bulb has switched on and he is memorizing sight words we aren’t even working on!

Roll & Graph Sight Words is now available in the You Can Read paid sectionKrash LOVES this activity.


He loves it even more when his kitty joins him…IMG_4579

Homeschooling at its finest. {ps-the blue tray is from Michaels}IMG_4582

Word-Play-rectangle41222I have been trying to do some sort of active word play game with him daily, simply because he loves it so much.

First I had him read through his word cards and I sorted them into piles-words he identified quickly and words he didn’t know or was slow with.  Then we played with the 2nd pile.  One day I set the 6 words up on our steps and he had to throw a beanbag on the word I yelled out.  Then we switched and he called out a word for me to throw a bean bag on.


Another day I set the words up across the room and has him sit by me.  I got a pack of fruit snacks and told him that I would tell him a word and say GO, then he had to run down and get the word and bring it back to me. If it was correct, he got the fruit snack.

After he got them all, I gave him a bonus fruit snack for any word he could read on his own without any help…he got all but 2 of them this time!

On another day, we used our Education Cubes YCR inserts {which mostly stay in our cubes at all times now}.  I stacked them up and yelled out a word and he had to wiggle around the stack to find the word without knocking the tower down.

He LOVED this!  My little wiggle worm, wiggling all the time anyway!IMG_4614

He has been very into building lately, here he built a house for his kitty out of our Rainbow Blocks.IMG_4500

I finally remembered to get out our big cardboard blocks and the boys had a great time!!!

Krash spends time playing “school” games on the iPad almost daily. Recently he has been asking PacMan to teach him things and P taught him how to add with his fingers.  Krash now has his own profile set up on Math Drills and he is progressing quickly-amazing to me!  He is VERY into this and does it in his free time.  IMG_4651IMG_4653He also spends tons of time playing Math BINGO and Sight Word BINGO.  The new free Lakeshore Apps are wonderful too, he really likes the phonics one!
