In between semesters

We are homeschooling.  Hannah is in kindergarten.  We just finished up Volume 1 of Five in a Row.  If you want to read our adventures with that, drop by my old blog.  After much prayer and research, I decided that this spring we are going to work on two things, counting to 100 and getting Hannah to a place where she not only recognizes her name (which she does) but that she can spell and write it correctly.  Right now she has the cutest way of writing her name:




She made this picture of herself the other day when she was with her sitter.  She's got all the letters but I guess she likes to group things in pairs :D
So I am pulling out something that I loved when I was in kindergarten.  If my first attempt is pleasing to Hannah I will try to get it laminated.  In my kindergarten, one of the stations that we could choose was our name.  Our full name was printed (by hand because NO ONE had computers back then and if they did, they had daisy wheel printers) on a long piece of ruled index paper and then it was laminated.  Then there was another copy of our name, also lamenated, that was cut into strips by the individual letters and we would just place the individual letters over the full name.  It was fun and I kept that copy of my name for a very long time (It's probably still in my mom's attic kind of long time!)
This morning I printed out two copies of Hannah's name and just need to cut one out for her after I get done blogging.
I've also found some free worksheets that have dot to dot that go up to the number 30 and one that has the alphabet.  This is all just for today's work.  I'm looking forward to ordering some curriculum for the spring, I'm thinking we will check into Math U See, as Hannah loves to touch.
Thanks for dropping by!  Tomorrow I'm hoping to post about my sock adventure :D
