School Daze- Week Thirty

Ryleigh is 37 Months and Braeden is 9 Months

This week we did Letter of the week "Y" is for Yellow... our shape firefly stART project...a lot of pattern work, musical mondays, dance class...and a trial for gymnastics...which she loved...hopefully we will be able to go back this year...

Putting sticker smiley faces on a "Y"...
great for letter recognition...and fine motor skills...

Working on a find the Letter Printable for "Y"
From Confessions of a Homeschooler, here she is working on numbers...
Tracing from her Kumon workbook...
I put the pages in page protectors and give her a dry erase marker...
so we can reuse them...
Working on her Melissa and Doug Patterns with Granny
Working on a pattern worksheet from the dollar store...
I also put it in a page protector to do again...
This week we made cupcakes..."Y" is for "Yummy cupcakes"... that works right?
The girls frosted and decorated them by themselves...
For "Y" is for Yellow... the girls painted the Y yellow and then glued some yellow items on...including felt, pipe-cleaners, pom poms, stickers and beads...Our stART shape project...

Tiny Tot School:
New in Braeden's world this week is the addition of the second tooth...just a sliver...but it is there... also...new favorite toy...paper towel roll....
Examining the roll...

Accepting the roll as an acceptable toy...
and by "toy"...I mean thing to bang against something...
Playing with Ryleigh...luckily I have quite the supply of these rolls...
as I am always project ready...
He also enjoys some quality reading time...
He likes to try and get the books off the shelf before I either A-notice or B-finish picking up the rest of the books... and finds the whole process extremely amusing...most of the time this activity ends with some serious giggles...
