Today Wyatt and I went on an adventure to one of our favorites places: DOLLAR TREE. We spent a good chunk of time in the school section and walked away with workbooks and flashcards and posters galore. I think I just need a few more visits and I’ll own practically the whole section. I feel okay about it.
As fun as the school section was, what Wyatt was really interested in was the Halloween stuff. He’s a costume kind of kid and I can’t ever seem to deny him stuff for his dress-up collection. Today he zeroed in on some pirate gear, and there was no way we were going home without it. He wore it around and called himself One-Eyed Willie (where are my Goonies fans at?) for a significant portion of the day.
I’m not sure if he knows that’s actually a knight’s breastplate, but I’m just playing along for now. Anyway, I think it looks fabulous with the doubloon necklace.
Later in the afternoon we cracked open a new workbook I picked up on sale over the weekend: Bob Books Developing Readers Workbook. It’s meant to accompany the Bob Books sets 3-5, but it seems to stand alone as well so we’re going to go forward with it. So far sight word flashcards haven’t been a huge hit, but the start of this workbook incorporates the words in a fun way that he really got into. I think we’ll go slowly through this one since it’s a smidge advanced, plus I want to take extra time to work on handwriting as well. I printed and laminated these A-Z Handwriting Worksheets that we’ll hopefully start using next week.
Since I worked again in the afternoon that pretty much summed up our homeschool day, and we were both okay with that. We’re ready for the weekend, baby.
Do you have any big weekend plans? I think you’ll find us mostly eating candy and watching movies and probably telling more knock-knock jokes.
