Lesson 25 {letter E} features an emergent reader {color or black/white} and introduces the word little.  Keep scrolling for the link to download!

We JUST finished working through Letter E of Reading the Alphabet!  Hence the reason I’m posting a day late.  Norovirus has hit our home HARD.   We’re on day 12 of it and I’m ready for it to GO!

On to happier things…here are a few shots I got of NJoy {currently 4.5 years old} doing his letter E activities.

NJoy still asks for me to print off the black and white version of the emergent reader.  He uses the Color Picture Cards to color in his book.  I enjoy the quiet while he colors. :)  I don’t know about you, but with 4 kids my house is rarely quiet.

This week, he did some rainbow writing with his poke page then asked for me to take his picture.

I turned away for a little bit to work with my 1st grader and when I came to check on him, he was cutting apart his word and rebuilding it on the floor!

He fought me on doing his elephant number activity with the dice.  So, I capitalized on his recent interest with adding numbers {you can read more about that in my guest post on 1+1+1=1} and here’s what he did instead:

I wrote out number equations. He used the family counters to solve, found the number on the elephant, then placed do-a-dot paint on the number.

After one round together, he wanted to the activity all over again.  But this time, HE wanted to write the equations. I’m not sure how successful he was as he assured me he could do it by himself. 😉

Instead of doing a print awareness activity this week, I created a concept sort for him.  Since his sight word was little, I used this word in his headings: Little and Not Little.
