TOT SCHOOL WEEK SEVEN- 30 MONTHS

This week I was sick so Ryleigh's social life and schooling suffered a bit in the beginning... I had to cancel music... and I had to cancel "tot school" for her friends... however, we were able to squeeze some activities in and by the end of the week things were back to schedule. We participated in stART, Friday Art Group, and Dance. We spent some time reviewing the letters that we had already done, as well as shapes and colors....

Who doesn't love a princess? Thank you Aunt Laura....Ryleigh enjoyed some dress up time...

Ryleigh working on alphabet blocks with my Grandmother...Letters, Numbers, Animals.....still in the princess dress.....

Braeden "talking" while Ryleigh works with the alphabet blocks. He is becoming a lot more vocal....

Continuing with last weeks work, Ryleigh worked on shapes and colors. Here she was matching up the colors to the objects.

Working with purple sand...great practice for spooning, pouring, scooping, etc.... quite a mess to clean up...I think I am switching over to rice or the equivelant....this is a favorite for Ryleigh and she worked on this project for about 45 minutes....

Instead of doing a new Letter of the Week this week, we reviewed the four that we had already done. I had Ryleigh paint with the cork to color in the letters.

We also reviewed some shapes...but painted with a regular paint brush... (the cork was losing its appeal after using it in the stART project and the letter review...)

Braeden playing on his gym...grasping his toys...while Ryleigh painted...

Ryleigh wanted to "free paint"...so we did that for a while....

Ryleigh working on her number Winnie the Pooh Puzzel....($1 store)

Braeden extremely excited to go to Art Group... yes he knows he doesn't actually get to do any of the projects, but he gets to see Juliette and she totally relates to him as a peer :)

Ryleigh at Art Group at Michelle's house...they painted with homemade puffy paint that gets dried in the microwave and they also made coffee filter turkeys...

Braeden "resting" at Art Group while the girls did their projects...waiting for playtime....

Hope you're feeling better. So hard to be sick when you're the mommy and everyone counts on you! Looks like you had a great week nonetheless.

Adorable pic of Ryleigh in the princess costume! And Braeden is just a bundle of cute in that little hood!

Michelle said...

What a great week of activities even with being sick. I'm so glad you were able to come for art group. Juliette does enjoy her time with Braeden!!

You got so much done for being sick during the week. Cute pics of your kids.

Such a great week! I've been wanting to try that puffy painting at home but haven't gotten around to it yet.

And, she makes a beautiful princess! Over here, we've been wearing the Cinderella dress almost daily (well, when we're at home!). :)

The purple sand does look fun! I might have to buy some colored sand and endure the mess.

You've got to share the homemade puffy paint that dries in the microwave and the turkey craft!!

Awesome week--thanks for linking up!

Susana said...

Forgot to say, I truly hope you are feeling better--it is soooo hard being a sick mommy!

I hope you are feeling better! You had such a terrific week despite not being well. I'm so impressed that she stuck with the sand tray for so long - what a great attention span! Your kids are absolutely adorable, love all the pics!

Sorry that you've been under weather. At least the kiddos didn't get it, and it looks like it was a great week overall. Your princess is such a cutie :)

Cara said...

You definitely got a lot done for being sick! Love the princess dress! The purple sand looks fun, and you are a brave, brave woman for doing that inside! :) My son has a sandbox outside that he loves, but all of our sensory tub activities inside have been super messy.

The cork painting idea is neat...I may have to try that with our art group.

Hope you're feeling better!
