This is a 'pumpkin seed' counting activity. I don't know if you can see them that great but there are numbers written in each pumpkin to show how many seeds are supposed to go in it.
We had a stamping station set up. I thought that this would get used a lot more, but maybe next time.
I made this color matching game out of clothes pins and paint sample cards (for some reason the name for them is completely escaping me right now! lol)
I think that these were a little difficult for Asa because the colors are so similar. I think that I will keep it out, but I'm going to keep only the darkest and lightest colors in the basket for now.
I had a lot of these left over so Asa had a fun cutting activity. I think that I will have him cut them down smaller this week and we'll make a fun Thanksgiving mosaic out of them.....
This cute little print out is from Lawteedah. We had a fun time doing it.....
.....but Asa is in serious denial of his hair color (he colored it brown...and as you can see his hair is anything but brown).
He had a good time working on these sheets from 2 Teaching Mommies. He cut out all the words and found the correct body parts all by himself.
These were our Body Dice this week. Each side had a different body part on the dice and after it was rolled Asa (or Silas or Annabelle....and even Mommy) would point to the body part that it was showing.
Identifying his leg.
Thanks to Pinterest I found a couple really cute crafts that we enjoyed together. This was our 'What's Inside' craft. This idea was found at Homeschool Share. Cutting out his stomach.
So there is a stomach, heart, lungs, and esophagus. I was trying to review the parts that we learned with him.....this is how that conversation went:
Me: Asa what are these (pointing at the baggies and straws..)
Asa: They're stwaws.
Me: (giggling)...Very good buddy.
Annabelle and Asa also made cute little skeletons out of q-tips. We talked a little bit about the function of bones, but for the most part Asa just relates them to the hard things inside us. :)
Annabelle did the glue by herself....I think she did a good job (hers is on the left).
These next couple of trays were more geared toward Silas. He focused on the letter Ff this week. This is a print out from the fantastic Ff tot school unit from 1+1+1=1. Silas really likes these bead letters a lot.
This was the body sensory bin. What is more appropriate than some Mr. Potato Head pieces to learn body parts with?
The kids had a pretty fun time with this....and it was definitely not as messy as the rice bin! lol Jude thinks he's pretty funny with putting two arms on the same side of Mr. Potato's body. :)
Silas really wants some cool glasses just like his awesome mommy. :)
These are the vocab cards from the same 1+1+1=1 unit. I taped them to a tray and Silas matched Mr. Potato Head's body parts to the correct cards. This was his favorite tray this week.
He also really enjoyed the dot markers. This kid would've done this all. day. long. this particular day if I had let him (and I did let him.....from 11 all the way until nap time (1:30)!)
This is a fun silly faces game that we have. I think it's by Discovery Toys. We've used it before with Asa, but it was really fun to see Silas try to make some of the faces. He really only had two looks down though.....
....and the smile. Ugh....so sweet I could just eat him up!! :)
