Back in the Saddle
We had a good first day back to school. We started late and that was good because it was so cold this morning it was hard to get out from under the warm covers.
Both boys got recorders for Christmas, so we have started lessons during music. I already had a very nice one that I purchased years ago that never got used. At first, I could not find something simple enough for both boys to use, but then I found Musicteacher44 on YouTube and she gave a good visual that both boys could see. So today we just started with holding, finger placement and steady blowing. Look at those faces (I first typed eyes and then realized you could not see their eyes. Ha ha)...concentrating so hard. ~Smile~
I also started Pre-K on the use of Tangrams today. I have had little foam ones for a couple of years, but never took the time to use them. This past weekend, I printed off this sheet and actually printed off paper tangrams and laminated them. This kid is really good at puzzles and now I know...tangrams
