Today is our first Monday of the Summer break, which means we began a new weekly schedule. I chose Hannah and the Seven Dresses as our Mom School book to illustrate the different days of the week.
I had prepped for the follow up activity by creating a blank schedule, and corresponding images with which to fill it in. To do this, in Word I created a table: the columns contain the days of the week, and the rows contain the activities in which we participate. Since I have two non-readers and my 4YO is not fully reading, I searched online to find an image to represent each activity. I inserted that image into the appropriate cell(s) of the table. I then printed a copy of the completed table.
Our printed table shows we have five days of swim lessons (swimsuit), one day for our city's reading in the park program (park bench), six days of chores (broom), six days to play with friends (swingset with the letter below; the letter is the initial of the family who is hosting that day's play time), and church (CTR insignia).
The OCD/perfectionist in me really wanted to print that, show it to the kids, and call it good. But then that wouldn't have been an interactive activity, now, would it have been.
So I then printed a version of the table with the images removed.
