A peek into what we have been doing lately.....

Edited to Add: I forgot to mention that Sam also did a blog entry. An original story by him. Please check it out over here. Make sure to leave a comment if you like it. He would be over the moon if you did.

I have been showing what has been going on with Gabe over the last few days but have not been showing much about school in general. Here is a little peek into all of the school we have been doing.
We started working on the state capitals with Gabe. It turned into a little bit of a life lesson for Sam. See Sam learned the state capitals awhile ago, he knew them cold. Since he did he thought that he would always no them, even with out reviewing them. He He, when they started playing the game it was funny. He kept running to his room saying that he is not the right person to do this with him. Even though the assignment was ment for Gabe, Sam did some learning to.

Since the boys are still working on Japan, they made kites for art class. It was very cute, Sam taught the class. He decided to make it like one of the Koi kites popular in Japan. Then they painted one side and folded in half to transfer the pattern.

I just love the look on Sam's face here. We were playing a history vocab game and I got a word that he really wanted. He is so funnny.

This was actually the picture taken at the begining of the reading yesterday. See everything was nice and calm. Ten minutes later the floodgates just opened up on him.

Every Wednesday I work on oral stimulation with Gabe for his sensory time. This week they went outside to blow bubbles. Sam was having tons of fun just trying to pop them.

Here are a couple shots from math today. Sam worked three digit subtraction on a FFG. Here he is double checking his answers. Gabe played his new game called Shop Till You Drop. This game is great because it does not only work math skills, it works english to because they have to do writing.
That is just a little of what we have been up to. I will be back with more soon. Hope you enjoyed it.

What a life lesson for Sam. Is he really old enouogh to be forgetting the things he has learned ? Too funny.
