We had a lot of fun with Blueberries for Sal. This is the first time I've ever read my littles this book and they really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed it....what a sweet story.
Letter B sensory bin.
Bear Bingo tray. I just had Silas match the colors for this.
Glue the Bs on the blueberry bushes.
He had such a great time cutting out apples and gluing them for the letter A that I printed out this letter B with bears from 1+1+1=1 Animal ABCs series.
He really enjoyed this tray. Guess I will continue to do this.
He enjoyed using a different painting medium other than a paint brush. Using these little balls also gave the bear an unexpected furry look. Bonus! :) Love when something unplanned that is cool happens.
Finished bear. One of Asa's alphabet sheets....no idea where the big B went......I will probably find it someplace random at some point.
I felt the need to set up the easel one day and let the kids paint. lol I drew about 5 Bs for Silas to paint. He had a good time with it.
Asa and Silas helped make Blueberry, Banana muffins. I have been doing really good on my goal of getting the kids in the kitchen more with me.
Asa is really enjoying his Explode the Code.....what a great resource. My kids just love doing their ETC pages.
Using our GeoSafari Phonics pad.....learning more about the B sound.
Working on sorting and patterning in our Saxon K. So far this has been relatively easy for him we've been moving at a good pace through it. That is nice since it gives me the freedom to not do a lesson everyday. :)
The kids were being really quiet one day....one of those 'too quiet' moments that kind of strikes fear in the heart of a mom and you don't know what you're going to find as you walk around the corner. lol I was pleasantly surprised when I found an impromptu art class in session (believe me I was expecting syrup, or hair cutting, or wall painting/coloring). Straws, glue, and big paper = these creations.....plus cooperation, getting along, and quiet....wonderful combination.
I really wanted to do this balloon activity with them again...they LOVED it, but I just didn't have the time to set it up. Maybe another time. Up next is The Very Hungry Caterpillar for the letter C. Happy blogging!
