Just a few pictures today of some things we've been up to this week! I am working feverishly on planning preschool & making the activities that we'll use this fall for Z's curriculum. Here is the first one I finished, and I was so excited for him to try this - it is a Numbers Handwriting Practice book - I laminated the pages & cut them into strips, then punched them & put them on a book ring. I got the idea and pattern here.
Zachary was being contrary this day, and did not want to write. He said it 'was not a school day'. Anyhow, I wrote on the cards & he wiped off what I wrote, and he thought that was fun. :) Notice Natalie playing Potato Heads in the background. :)
On a hike this week, we saw a dragonfly and he just sat still for about five minutes to let Z look at and pet him!
I am working on a new system to organize my school games - I put each one in a page protector to keep the pieces separate & organized - I hope it will work well! Here is the Rocket Size Sort I made a few months ago - found here:
And this is the Missing Letters game from Confessions of a Homeschooler:
And the Butterfly Size Sort Game, also from COAH:
The COAH curriculum also has these adorable M&M color matching puzzles - you cut them apart into two pieces & the kids match them up by color. :) I think Z will really like these - I cut them out & laminated them. :)
So that's about all the learning we've been up to - along with reading. :) Our library's summer reading program starts this week with a kickoff tomorrow night & a story hour on Thursday, so I'll hopefully share more about that next week!!! Check out more Tot School over at 1+1+1=1!
