Three Weeks Down

We just finished up our third week of school and I can’t believe how fast it is going by! I haven’t taken a lot of pictures other than of Emily on the first day (because Chris was actually taking them) and of some of our book and art activities.

The first week we worked on the letter A. Here is Emily with a few of her activities. Most of the activities were printed from Kidssoup. She worked on making an A with playdough, matching different color A’s, tracing the letter, coloring things that start with A, putting together a puzzle, and gluing on words that start with the letter A.

We read the book And Rain Makes Applesauce and made umbrellas with cupcake liners and yarn on cardstock and drew applesauce rain on the pictures.

Their favorite activity of course was making acorns. I saw this idea on Pinterest. You take Hershey Kisses and add a mini vanilla wafer and top it off with a peanut butter chip on the top. We used icing for the glue. DSC02899. DSC02901

We enjoyed our acorns while watching our letter A movie…The Apple Dumpling Gang. Lets just say they were not that impressed with the movie:)

On the 2nd week we worked on the letter B and what is more fun than blowing bubbles. I filled up cups with water and food coloring and added straws. I let the girls blow bubbles in their cup onto water color paper. This was a big hit because they are normally not able to blow bubbles with their drinks.

This wraps up the first 2 weeks of school. I was very happy with how well the girls have gotten back into the groove of school. Yes, we have had some not so great moments but I feel so blessed to stay home and teach my girls!!!!
