  2. Workbook page

  3. Boy Scout Badge work

  4. Play Alphabet game together  - We make a list of the alphabet and then pick a topic. Whoever can come up with the most words on that topic wins. So, if we choose "Musical Instruments" or "Things in a Grocery Store" we each try to list one item for each letter of the alphabet. The trick is that my son can void the words off my list if he writes down the same word I have. Amazingly, he loves this game and doesn't even realize he is working on his handwriting, spelling, and vocabulary at the same time.
