Word Recognition:
We use these as our spelling words and reading recognition words when going through books. When we read I keep this list handy so when I point to a word and he does not recognize it in a sentence I found sometimes he does when it’s singled out. We write our spelling words 2 times each (normally 4-6 words) and then spell them out loud as well 3’s a week.

Math: (we do this daily)
For our math we love to use things laying around the house for adding, subtracting and practicing with skip counting as well. I have found pennies work great for skip counting. We start by putting 3 on the first row, then 6, then 9 etc to show the skip and then he writes the numbers on the dry erase board as he says them. For adding and subtracting we use everything; cereal, books, pens, paper, people, you name it we use it and make a game out of it. He then writes the additions or subtraction on the dry erase board.
