Labor Day, "Lite" School

Our first day adding our next "layer" of school plans went awry yesterday. Real life reared its ugly side when I scratched my cornea over the weekend. I've been flying half blind since Sunday (typing with one closed now!) and I ditched our literature heavy plans yesterday. No reading for me, sadly!

M. still wanted to do "projects," however, so I pulled a few things out!

Cutting and pasting is an all-time favorite and this Kumon-like workbook from BJ's is darling!

We worked on patterns with these apple pattern cards from Spell Out Loud. We haven't worked on this all summer, but we got back in the groove quickly! I did discover that ABABAB is still best for M. He couldn't quite get the hang of ABCABCABC patterning yet.

Then, of course, drawing! We brought out our favorite crayons and went to town!

We had a great time, and today were able to do more of our normal routine.


  1. So glad you were able to use the apple cards!

  2. I'm so sorry about your scratched cornea! That sounds really scary to me. Does such a thing simply heal?

  3. Sorry about your eye, will it heal soon?

    Ooh, I've been meaning to buy Stockmar crayons and blocks for months, should I go just for it?
