School Daze- on to Cc... and Farm...

Ryleigh is 40 Months and Braeden is 13 Months

This week we continued with our musical Mondays, calendar time, stART projects and dance classes...and lots of enjoying the nice weather....

TOT SCHOOL
In Tot School Braeden focused on practicing his walking and learning to ride a push car... also...he worked on getting more of his teeth in....fun times....

Braeden playing with the cones for the first time...checking them out completely...
Coming over to me...to hit the camera with the cone....
Walking at Grandma Sue's House....
Ryleigh pushing Braeden (gently) on the car...
Braeden working on his shape puzzle....
So far he has tried to "match" up the shapes...and puts the shape on top...but doesn't actually get the puzzle piece in place...I was impressed that he matched them....(some of them)
Braeden chasing the girls through the obstacle course....
Braeden....not letting the girls back in the tunnel....and when they eventually did get back in...he used the tunnel as a drum...and then jumped on it...wrestler style....yikes!
PRESCHOOL
This week for Calendar Time our Letter of the Week was Cc; Number of the Week was 6; Color and Shape were Red Circle; and sight words were "I" and "See"....
Our "theme" was Farm...

The girls made Cup Cakes (for "Cc")...here Ryleigh is swirling in the chocolate to the yellow cake to make it marbled...(we then put in butterscotch chips)...
Working on the Letter of the Week Craft..."c" is for cookie.... The girls used red cylinders (circles) to make 6 circle chocolate chips...
The finished cookies...
The girls also put smiley face (circles) stickers on Cc...a great fine motor activity...
We worked on our alphabet books...
Here are the three girls working on their books....
Ryleigh coloring in her itsy bitsy "Cc" book....
For our farm theme...and C is for Cow...
we did Cow Roll and Color from
Making Learning Fun...
To reinforce both the letter "C" and our shape of the week, the circle.... I had the girls paint with coins...a messy..but fun activity!
The finished coin painting project...
To review from last week, Ryleigh did Finding B and Finding b... with her bingo marker...
Working on a Farm Puzzle...she would do puzzles all day long if she could...
Working on our stART project...for Chicka Chicka Boom Boom...
Also from Making Learning fun the girls did an alpha dot...
that made the Letter C...and had a cow on it...(both C and Farm...)

Working on their sight words, the girls listened to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See? ...and worked on their books from Hubbards Cupboard ...they used a different color to underline each sight word...
Another project from Making Learning Fun was these clothes pin Farm Counting Cards...I laminated them so they would last longer...
In the middle of the week, we set up an obstacle course for the girls to run through...cones, tunnel, mat, sit and spin...(small table to crawl under)...they were most interested in the tunnel...although Ryleigh did enjoy doing running somersaults...

Ryleigh at the sit and spin with Teagan close behind...
Crawling through the tunnel...

Wow what an amazing week!! Now I am sad that we were not able to be a part of it. I totally forgot about putting stickers on the C, I am adding that to our plans for next week. Totally need to make an obstacle course here, Emily and Juliette would love it...great cones by the way :0)

Lovely to see all the pictures of your gorgeous children! My girls LOVE to play together -- it is a blessing to have them close in age and to be able to foster the friendships from this early on!
