HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
I hear 2011 is going to be GREAT!
My little Butterfly kept herself busy, despite being the holidays and worked on her alphabet and number activities as usual, combining two weeks into one week. We've completed Letter I and Number 9 now.
This is what we did:
Reviewing the new letter and number with Leap Frog Fridge Magnets and flash cards and tracing the sandpaper letters.
The laminated card - a whole set and a second set cut in half for matching, is from Homeschool Creations.
Writing the letter I in the paint-in-a-bag and in the Salt Box first.
Recording the next letter and number in our charts.
Driving/ Tracing an I- road with a car, and making an I on the Peg Board with coloured elastic bands.
Alphie Robot teaching I and 9.
Using "icecubes" (from the dollar store) to make capital and lower case I's.
Butterfly decorated her I's with circle stickers as icecream scoops on a cone, and with Iguana lizard stickers!
A cut and paste Inchworm activity.
The next pages for our Alphabet Craft Book- I for Iguana and i for icecream.
Writing practice booklet using Jumbo wipe-off crayons.
Number Practice booklet- laminated on cardstock, using wipe-off crayons or markers.
Counting Inchworms- matching them with the numbers
Writing the next number and counting.
For this activity, we used plastercine for the base, then using golf tees, Butterfly poked "i's" into it in a row, then she dotted her "i's" with marbles :)
The next page in our Nature Journal, following the Charlotte Mason approach.
Butterfly's Daddy brought her Inchworm ride-on toy from the garage and she had fun playing on this and riding it through the house! I is for Inchworm! :))
