Morning Lessons... This morning the kids worked on several things. They each did a file folder game: our daughter worked on counting money matching the coins to the corresponding number, and our son worked on pattern matching found in this butterfly file folder game. Then they worked on puzzles for awhile. Our daughter wrote a thank you card to a friend and practiced her handwriting skills and our son worked on his numbers on a leap pad while I nursed the baby.

We had a bible study lesson with a verse memorization. Today we worked on Proverbs 15:1 "A soft answer turns away wrath" our daughter memorized it and we read a story that showed this principle in practice. Then we talked about the story, the verse and how she can apply it in her life. She repeated the verse several times and we talked about it until it became apparent that she understood what she was memorizing.

Then the kids picked up a Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme Book and asked to work on their rhymes. We practiced reciting several rhymes (the two year old was able to repeat and recite some while the four year old worked on her memorization and pronunciation) including:

Itsy Bitsy Spider
There Was an Old Woman
Jack Sprat
Sing a Song of Sixpence
Old MacDonald
Pease Porridge Hot
One, Two Buckle my Shoe
little Miss Muffet
Little Miss Tucket
Little Bo-Peep
Rain, Rain Go Away
Old King Cole
Here We Go Around the Mulberry Bush
The Purple Cow
Mary Had a Little Lamb
Humpty Dumpty
The Cat and the Fiddle

After our nursery rhyme work than we made lunch and it will soon be naptime (which today for me is clean the house time) and then we will make a library run this afternoon after our groceries are delivered (I love online grocers!) and put away. Hope you are having a great day.
