C: The Very Hungry Caterpillar

We in no way came near to doing everything I wanted to do for The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I didn't even make up the trays for it. :/  But, we have been on the letter Cc for 3 weeks now and it's time to move on. lol

We talked a lot about food and healthy choices and what should be eaten in moderation.  The boys had fun looking through the grocery ad and cutting out the things they would choose to eat.  After that we talked about their choices.

Making circle caterpillars.....

After the caterpillars were finished Asa decided to do an extension of the activity....and Silas joined him.  They found another grocery ad and decided that since it was a hungry caterpillar they should feed it.  They glued some food into each circle section.  Kept them busy for a LONG time.  Love it when they come up with their own ideas and have the time to see it through to the end (one of the reasons I love homeschooling).

Working on a caterpillar to butterfly puzzle.  These boys LOVE puzzles.

We made cupcakes for C (yeah for me in the kitchen!), and then frosted them to look like the hungry caterpillar.

Other random happenings these last few weeks....

Explode the Code (I LOVE ETC!!)
All About Reading Pre-Level 1 (I LOVE AAR Pre-1!!)  He is playing a rhyming game.
Then he colored his rhyming game (his idea again).
Another AAR activity.
This took him forever, and he was pretty proud of himself.
On a day I had nothing prepared for them they put together this floor puzzle and were copying the letters from it.

Math happenings.....

Working with pattern blocks
Graphing counting bears
We also made boxes for Operation Christmas Child (which reminds me I need to drop them off still!).  Our church usually does an adopt a family (which is GREAT!), but they always have more than enough help, and all we essentially give is money so it really doesn't mean anything to the kids.

I wanted them to see something tangible that they were giving.  We had a lot of fun with these.  They helped shop for what went in the box, stuffed the box, and learned why we put things in like soap/washclothes, toothbrush/toothpaste, socks, etc.  We got everything at the Dollar Tree (good stuff too...candy, water bottles, art supplies, bubbles, little animals, slinkies, balls, etc) and invested everything we would have into adopting a family into three boxes.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful autumn!!  Happy blogging!
