Does anyone know what the Octonauts are? I mean seriously... I think Ella is the only kiddo obsessed with all the Octo-characters. She is even going to be Tweak for Halloween- there will be a lot of confused people because no one will know who she is. Oh well... that's what she wanted to be.
I thought we'd take a little break from our Abeka curriculum and do something fun this week. I found an Octonaut pack from 1plus1plus1equals1 blog. We've been hitting the books pretty hard and I thought a break would be a nice change.
I made and laminated some sheets so we could work on her teens, twenties, thirties, and forties (okay, so that wasn't Octonaut related). We reviewed her numbers and then I would say a number and have her circle it. She thought this was fun since she got to work with dry erase markers. I guess it's the little things...
We worked on fractions with the Octonauts.
We got more familiar with money with the Octonauts.
It was a fun, but busy week. We packed it full of Octo-work and next week will be back to our regular ol' schedule.
