Sierra is listening too

A few weeks ago we did day one of the Download N Go, Goofy Geckos. Well stuff and things happened so we didn't get to day two until this morning. When we study a Download N Go Sierra is allowed to join in as much as she likes. Today I gave her some paper to cut, glue and a coloring page of Geckos. While I am working with Zoey I tell her the next question is, "What do geckos use to clean their eyes?" We were getting ready to watch the video link to answer our question when Sierra pipes up, "Dey use der tongue to keen der eyes.(They use their tongue to clean their eyes)" She is pointing to her tongue and eyes the whole time. She remembered this from the day one study. It was briefly mentioned in something I read.  She really amazes me.

Tuesday I was working with Zoey on math. I told her to color the same toys the same color on her worksheet. Sierra wanted a worksheet too so I drew nine shapes on a piece of paper, three squares, three circles, three diamonds. I gave it to her and said, "you can color this however you like." She colored each shape that matched the same color. And circled same shapes in same color. Now Zoey's work was small as it was only one problem on a sheet of problems and Zoey used two shades of yellow for different objects (you could barely see the difference) it looked nothing like what I gave Sierra. I was so surprised. What a hoot this kid is.

The Caterpillar

Zoey memorized her first poem from First Language Lessons is record time. I can't wait to see how she does with the next one.
