Kindergarten with Krash … Skylanders


You Can Read: review

RRSK: Letter Mm {I have NO photos of it!}

Theme: Skylanders


We used assessment and review materials from You Can Read.  He has completed all 18 of the base units!  We are taking a break fro You Can Read as a whole, but may bring in the color and number word units soon.  We will be focusing on lots of review at this point in the school year, and playing tons of word games.

Here he was reading words, IMG_1924

he was thrilled that he knew more words this time around!IMG_1933

He did the 10 minute writing word assessment also and was thrilled with how many words he could write!IMG_1929

This is the Teacher’s Prompt sheet.  All of these assessment materials and more are a part of the You Can Read Bundle!IMG_1930

We began reviewing All About Reading Level 1 awhile ago, and Krash continues to make consistent progress.  You can read more about why we are choosing to review this homeschool reading program here in our “Current Curriculum” post {see FAQ}.

I wrote a lot about our initial thoughts and experiences with AAR in this Kindergarten with Krash post.

I plan to up our All About Reading work now that our You Can Read work is complete.  We didn’t do any All About Reading work during Skylanders time, as he was VERY into Skylanders and I worked in his reading practice through the theme!

I get asked a lot about our case-it’s the Trident Kraken II and yes we love it! Educational iPad Apps here, also, iPad Apps-part 2!  The stylus we have that he uses sometimes is this one.
