We will be continuing with our Moses lessons this week. Hoping we will get through the plagues, the parting of the Red Sea, and the Ten Commandments. I will post more on what we are doing with that in the Week in Review.
Let me apologize in advance for a couple messy pictures. I was just trying to take them and post them so I could finish prepping them. So without further delay here are our Turkey activities.
On the top is a color the turkey book for Asa. This and other cute activities can be found here: http://1plus1plus1equals1.blogspot.com/2010/11/thanksgiving-preschool-pack.html
The rest of the activities include a feather number match, patterning feathers, and a feed the turkey game and can be found here: http://www.2teachingmommies.com/2010/11/turkeys.html
This is a turkey bowl game that I made. Pretty self explanatory.
And I know that these brown lumps do not look very attractive at this moment, but they will look much cuter in our week in review. Follow this link to see what we're going to do with our chocolate play-doh (that smells really yummy!)
I will say that even though it smells good I did not like the recipe that I used for this. It turned out really dry and I have no idea what to do about it. I did add more water which seemed to help. I also ran out of regular table salt so I had to use our kosher coarse salt....which really tore up my hands in the kneading process and did not dissolve good (hence the white flecks in the dough). Lesson learned: If you run out of regular table salt go to the store and get more. lol

I don't know how well you can see the individual activities, but I will explain them clockwise starting in the top left: Gg gumball sort, Math activity (place as corresponding amount of gumballs in the machine), Roll a Gumball Machine (the kids love any game that they get to use the big dice for), and Annabelle's first color by number (I really hope that she likes it)!
This is a random counting file folder game that I found. This week we are reviewing numbers 1-6 so this fit in, plus who doesn't love an ice cream learning game? lol We are moving slower than I would like on numbers, but she is having a more difficult time with them. She can count to 14 (sometimes 15) before she is totally lost so I need to come up with a new strategy. A more consistent calendar time will most likely help with this.
These are Silas' new trays for the week, I left out his blocks and his bead rollercoaster.
This is the pouring activity that you saw in the previous Week in Review post.
