Mortensen... reading...drawing...writing...

We can say: "Yes, we did some Mortensen Math..." but not in an orthodox way. Mama started doing addition and subtraction and we did some but then she pulled out the Mortensen manipulatives and wow!! we really had a blast with it. Now.... mama kept trying to make us do 1 unit + 3 units.... or 4 units -2 units.....but we did something quite different shown below... It is not exactly math, but for us is fun and we learn too.

Reading and Writing

At school we have on Fridays library day. Every Friday we select a book from the library to bring home and read with mama and papa. The books we selected are Mickey Mouse and Pinkdelicious. By the way, I think that mama is happy that we did not select for the 3rd time "Finding Nemo." :)

We brought a bunch of books from home that, at first, looked hmm...hmm.. Later, when mama sat with us and helped with the sounds we found it fun. So, what we do is to pick at random one of those books and seat with mama and read.

When we are at home we spend a great deal of time drawing and writing. What do we write? signs for mama, we write tickets like police officers do, etc. Here are some examples:

Because we know we have to respect the 'law', in this case, the signs we created some for mama:

No fighting
Mama! wake up stop sleeping!!
