Staff Pose: This pose seems simple--in fact, it's very challenging, and will strengthenyour legs, back and coremuscles, and is excellent for improving posture. Sit with your legs straight out in front of you, toes pointing up to the sky. Make those legs strong! Your heels might even lift off the floor. Pull your belly in and sit up really tall--put your hands down beside you or behind you to help. If it's very hard to sit up straight, sit on the edge of a folded blanket. Take a few breaths in and out, relax for a minute, and then try it again.
Cobblers Pose/Butterfly Pose: begin in Staff Pose; inhale and lengthen through the spine, grounding your sitting bones into the ground; exhale and bend your knees, bring your heels into your pelvis (as close as is comfortable for you); inhale and grasp the big toe of each foot, keeping the outer edges of the feet touching; bring your pelvis slightly forward to ensure proper pelvic alignment and engage your lower abdominals; exhale and lift the chest, lengthening again through the spine; do not put any pressure on your knees, ground the tops of your thigh bones into the ground; breathe here for a few breaths, release the feet, straighten the legs back into Staff Pose

Each week I have been trying to make a homemade color book. This week, I’ll work on the color green. Also coloring pages using green such as http://www.first-school.ws/t/cp_misc/tree-1.htm
I’m going to start using something I read about on the “Reading with Hannah” blog (see right for a link to the blog). Each night write a new sentence on a dry erase board. Also write the phonics words being worked on. Then put it in the homemade notebook. I will probably use sentences from goodnight moon.
The letter of the week is D-letter D printables from http://www.first-school.ws/theme/alphaletter/d.htm
The number of the week is 4
