School Daze....Gg is for guitar...

Ryleigh is 41 Months and Braeden is 14 Months
TOT SCHOOL
This week Braeden has mastered another sign ("poopy")...so he now knows about 5...also...he has been working on his speed when walking and getting into mischief....his favorite activity is trying to make his sister laugh...

PRESCHOOL
We did Letter Gg this week (for guitar), Number 5, Green, Hexagon and reviewed our 7 sight words.... Ryleigh is doing really well with her Spanish numbers and can fluently recognize 1-10, even when out of order...

Braeden playing with the magnadoodle...he LOVES this toy...here he is testing the tip of the pen...trying to figure out how it is writing on the board...Braeden playing with the kitchen set...
Braeden...waiting patiently..ish...for Ryleigh to build something tall enough for him to knock down...
Ryleigh working on "Gg" in her alphabet book...
Ryleigh working on a color by number from Confessions of a Homeschooler...
Ryleigh and Teagan both loved doing the bingo markers with this printable from Homeschool Creations...
Ryleigh working on her numbers....I got this printable from making learning fun...I laminated them and have had the girls use both clothespins and dry-erase markers on them while counting...
For fine motor practice, the girls transferred pebbles into pumpkins again...they really like this activity...
As I was unloading the dishwasher I heard...pit pat...pitter pit pat....and then a splash...and then massive giggling... I turned around and Braeden had emptied his entire cup of water onto the kiddie table...and was happily splashing in it....and squealing with delight... it was the funniest thing.... this is the clearest picture that I got...his little hands were moving quite fast!
Ryleigh playing with the oversized blocks.... she made up stories to go with her buildings...very cute...
Braeden had a great time building with the blocks...and really liked knocking down the buildings that Ryleigh and I built...Ryleigh built things specifically for him to knock down...
Braeden...unamused that I am taking his picture...again...
The girls have been working on sight words for a while (they are up to 7)... so this week we did some review and played BINGO ...sort of... I was surprised that they found the majority of them without any card prompts....
For our stART project this week, they did "fancy" painting...with containers...
For a fine motor practice, I had the girls put stars on the outlines of "G" and "g"... Ryleigh was not so into this one this week...
Braeden and Anna working on farm puzzles...
The girls worked on a color by number Halloween scene that I made...available in my printables...
We used these fun sticker counting sheets from Confessions of a Homeschooler...since we were doing "Gg" this week...we used goldfish instead of stickers.... yummy!
This week for our Letter of the Week, we did g is for guitar....I tried to come up with something fun for g...Ryleigh working on the gluing on the "strings"....
The finished guitar....
* The Ramblings and Adventures of a SAHM is now on facebook...you know you are VERY excited....and want to hit "like"....
