You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato

Part of our morning routine is "circle time". Circle time is when we sit together and review the following things:

  • the day/date
  • the month
  • the season
  • the weather
  • our address and phone number
  • the states (The boys have memorized 19 states thus far.)
  • Bible verses
  • Bible story
  • prayer.

I introduced the state of Missouri to the boys yesterday. I questioned them on it this morning, and they couldn't quite get the correct name to come out of their mouths.

At first, Missouri was named "Sophia!" I have no idea where that came from, but Liam (4 1/2) was quite adamant about it, until Jack (3) corrected him and said, "NO! It's Misery!"

I promise I did not teach the pronunciation to be "Misery", but we all had a good laugh over it.

Hi Amy!
I love that you do this circle time with your wonderful boys. I cannot believe that Garrett just turned 3...Happy Birthday! Jessica told me about your blog and I had to check it out...I've gradually watched them grow up and just love to see pictures. I would really like to begin doing something like your circle time with Warren. You're such a pro at providing a good structured routine...I would be all ears for any suggestions on what works best for you!
