Kindergarten – What We Did

May 24, 2007 at 7:16 am (Uncategorized)

It is much harder to come up with a concrete list of what I did with my daughter this year.  So much of her learning happened with her doing things at my side like cooking , running errands, answering questions and sitting in my lap with a library book.  I did not in any way try to keep track of all those books read and life lessons learned.  But, here is what I did document…

We also did…the 1st quarter of Sing Spell Read and Write.  The 1st  50 lessons of Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons.  Watched Leap Frog Letter Factory DVD.  We read many, many many books aloud.  Played countless math board games. Played countless online and CD rom computer learning games.  Did Kindergarten and 1st grade level misc. work books for math, phonics, handwriting and general education.  


Whew…I think that is pretty much the bulk of what we did for Kindergarten.  I don’t know that we are necessarily "done" for the school year.  As a matter of fact this little girl is such a eager learner that I have to HIDE from her NOT to be teaching her something!  LOL  But, I think this will do for Kindergarten in a nutshell!
