This week Alexa learned about the Letter Mm. She continues to delight and amaze me with her eagerness to and ease of learning.
Our core remains the Explode the Code workbook which Alexa BEGS to do!! She loves it!

Reading with Treyton
Alexa loves to play games on the I-Pad, most all of the games that we have are educational. This week I downloaded ABCs of God, which Alexa has thoroughly enjoyed. (I think it was $2.99) and I highly recommend it.
Writing her Letters
Alexa loves writing the letters that she learns. It is the hardest thing that she learns throughout the week, and often times when I first introduce the letter to her, she gets a little flustered, but by the end of the week she gets it and it’s worth the extra work for her. So far she has learned the letters in her name and b, f, and m. She will often times, trace them in the air for her Dad and I, as well as on the table. We’re so proud of her!

Tot School – Fun for Audrey
I love how much fun we’re having with school. It takes some time to plan it all and get it ready, but it’s totally worth it when I can see this face as she’s learning!!
