Summer time fun.....
Wow is the summer really flying by. We have fun this summer along with finishing up the alphabet. It was more a review since she knows all her letters how to write them and their sounds. But I wanted to finish up the worksheets we had before moving on.
This summer has been filled with lots of fun. We had a few play dates with our Mops group. We also went to the beach a few times. Then off to New Hampshire to go camping and see the sites. We went to Loon Mountain, Storyland, Mini golf and Water country. Samantha loved it all. I was amazed at her going in the caves at Loon Mountain. She had so much fun exploring them.
We went to the Ocean Explorium in New Bedford. She touched and held a starfish. Then fed the sea horses. I can't wait to go back when we are working more on the ocean and its creatures
We also have been doing a book reading contest at the mall. So for that we have been going to the library to get books to read. She is loving all the reading we have been doing.
Oh she actually read a book. One of her phonics readers. She needed a little assistance to read some sight words but was able to sound out the rest of the words herself.
We went to a roller skating party. Samantha has never roller skated before. She loved it. Said it was easier then ice skating once she got use to it.
We also went to the replacement for Fall River Celebrates America. The city ran out of funds to put it on. This was much better. It was a family fun fair. Not sure what they called it. But it was all kind of free things for kids to do. She made some paintings and went in the bouncy house. Watched the dance show. Played in the sandbox looking for the treasures they had buried there. Went into the fire departments trailer home to teach about fire safety.... made me realize how relaxed I have been on teacher her that.. Yes we talk about fire safety but since moving in here we never made and escape plan. That is something we will be doing this week.
