Transition Day 4

Honestly, I don't feel like I'm handling this change very well.  We still haven't picked back up all our subjects.  I've just made sure that we have completed our math and we're still working on Lil Bit's project for her brothers. We finally got our letter draft done, along with all three pictures.

We're only on day 4 of cursive and she is doing so well with it.  She is left-handed and has some evidence of it in her print, but her handwriting is so much cleaner.

Here she is reviewing letters we've already learned.  We take on M, N, O, and P today.

We also have been trying to build an art lesson out of her pictures for her brothers.  We worked on forming larger shapes out of simple shapes.  The body of the soccer player is a circle, triangle, and circle.

Here's Tiff's finished project...

Then we used Illustration School: Let's Draw Cute Animals by Sachiko Umoto to draw a panda for her youngest brother.  She originally wanted to do an elephant, looked at the steps and got a little overwhelmed. Oh well...project for another day!

Here's the finished picture of the panda...

Today we jump into square roots, do the final draft of her letter, and learn four more letters in our handwriting lesson.  Guess it's time to get a jump on it!
