Monkey is 3 years 8 months old
This week, Monkey started her venture into beginning reading. She’s nowhere near ready to actually start reading, but we introduced 3 part cards. With 3 part cards, she had to match words (without actually being able to read what it said). She was very fast with this–should could match words just by looking at them for a second! It was really impressive to watch!

Here, Monkey is using tweezers to put one small bead into every dent on the snail tray. She kept saying it was too hard, but she did it perfectly every time!

Monkey's first try with the 3 part cards. This set had "tree", "flower", "vine", "grass", and "leaf" in it.

Monkey was learning sequencing with this work. One set of cards was seed-sprout-flower and the other set was mixing-baking-decorated cake.
More work with the compass. This week, she added south, east, and west to her repitoire.
