I have been trying to start doing a theme with Michael each week and we focus on reading a lot of books, a shape, a letter, and color too. He recently turned 3 and is ready for a bit of structure, although we tend to just fit it into our day for now until I start school with the big kiddos.
This week has been the theme COWS. This morning I asked him to tell me everything he has learned about cows and this was his response...
"I learn about cows, gutters (udders!), bulls, calves, butter, beef, they go to a farm, skin (cowhide), they eat grass!"
Overall he retained quite a bit throughout the week :-)
Next week the theme is Jungle!!
