    Hive Mind Larvae
  1. It is planning time for my rising 4th grader and I think I am ready to take the plunge with Latin. I have no Latin experience, but he is an eager student who is a highly visual learner. What have you used and loved? Why? What have you used and hated? Why? Thanks!
  2. I will be teaching our co-op's 4 and 5 year oId class next year. We have not had a separate class for this age before, so I get a lot of say in how we cover the basics. So I thought I would use the Hive mind to brainstorm. There will be a heavy emphasis on the alphabet and the one-letter phonograms. What are your favorite activities to do with a small group of four and five year olds? Thanks!
  3. Thank you all so much for your replies. Sometimes the naysayers in my life get too loud and I just need a little been there, done that wisdom.
  4. My five-year-old is just not getting blending sounds into words. She knows all the letter sounds, and can read them accurately in a word, but once she finishes the sounds, she totally guesses what the word is. For example, yesterday the word sat was read as both at and snake, even after she has made the sss-aaa-t sounds. Tell me that if I just lay off for a few months it will be ok, tell me that I don't need to send her to public school where she would definitely be reading CVC words by this point in the year, tell me your kid couldn't blend words at age five but by six or seven he learned to love reading. You could also give me your tips and tricks for getting blending to be more understandable.
  5. I think this organization has done a lot of fantastic work in the San Diego area and it would be wonderful to see their work expanded to other regions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Stick on mustaches? Those things always crack up kids of all ages. At least my whole extended family had a blast and a lot of laughs with them at the last reunion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
