And of course it's hammering it down, and according to the forecast will continue to rain all week. Gah.
Before the rain hit, we had some fun in the tent:
Rye is still very much into workbooks. I sat with him outside at the garden table and we did a few pages from each of his books. I confess to not quite understanding the logic of the alphabet one though.
I am liking the Thomas handwriting book:
Rye sat for hours the other evening with his different sizes and shapes book; even without being able to read properly, he was able to figure out in a general way what was expected, I didn't bother getting all anal about him doing it "correctly" and just left him to explore, and offered advice, instruction if he asked for it.
I can't see myself buying many more of these though, there are plenty of free printable worksheets if Rye continues to enjoy doing this sort of thing. I really must get some folders too, I do want to do some lapbooks with him based on the alphabet, and I think that will re-enforce his reading eggs practise more than doing these workbooks... and admittedly it appeals more to me too, the workbooks I personally find deathly boring.
