Supplementing FLL1, Lessons 31-40

A continuation of what we're adding to lessons from First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind: Level 1. (Click here for my post about the previous ten lessons.)

Common noun or proper noun review
   Just like the cards I made for the first 10 lessons, I made more index cards with common nouns and proper nouns to sort. This time I used places, geographic features, animals and pets, and things.

Calendar Printables (Lesson 34)
   We use the printable calendars available at The days are blank so you can use them for any year.

Days of the Week Poem (Lesson 35)
  To help Builder Boy remember the peoms we use signs along with saying them. This time we learned the official signs for the days of the week. Each day (except for Sunday) is the letter of the name of the day, waved in a circle. The blue-green links are to the video demonstrating them on the free site 

Days of the Week
Mother Goose rhyme, adapted by Sara Buffington

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace;


Wednesday's child is ever so sweet,
Thursday's child is tidy and neat;


Friday's child is prone to a giggle,
Saturday's child is easy to tickle;


But the child that is born on restful Sunday
Is happy and cheerful, and loves to play.


The days of the week signs were easy to learn because we already knew the letter signs. We learned them from Signing Time's 5th dvd ABC Signs. (The link is to the company's website, the picture is a link to the listing.)

Days of the Week Cards (Lesson 38)
  I wrote the days of the week on index cards and Builder Boy puts them in order. The second part was his idea.

The lessons and the poem we got from FLL1. The original link is to the author's printing press website, the picture is a link to the Amazon listing. I came up with the extra activities on my own. I don't get paid for my reviews.

  1. this is a good idea and i'm bookmarking for next year! I learned the signs when I was younger and still remember them so it's a good idea to teach them to my children.
