school with elle: day 17.

part of our chalkboard activities each day includes recording the weather. i love elle's rendition of a windy day:


today we played an outdoor game where elle matched number words (one through ten) with their numerals. she used a combination of letter-sound correspondence and the process of elimination (plus a bit of guessing) to decode each word. [i helped her with the word one and reminded her that th makes the stick-your-tongue-out-sound, but the rest of the decoding was hers.]


this is a perfect example of how something that would bore her to snores on paper is Tons of Fun outdoors (notably when the writing utensil is sidewalk chalk).


we read a few books and poems with illos too pretty not to photograph:


three cheers for school!
