When Emma and Jacob have “Journal time,” we start with a brief grammar lesson out of a DK book on Language Arts (I love DK books!!). Today we read about pronouns. The book said that without pronouns, sentences would be long and confusing. So, they each got a book and then read a few sentences out loud replacing all pronouns with the nouns. They loved it! Jacob wanted to keep going. I think he’s found a new game. 🙂
I feel so happy when we are learning and having fun at the same time. The right kind of fun is actually evidence of understanding a new concept and that’s really cool.
