School Daze .... Now we are doing Nn....

Ryleigh is 44 Months and Braeden is 17 Months
Ryleigh and her friends went to see Princesses on Ice and had so much fun!!! (Thank you
Michelle for the picture)...Braeden has a lot of fun sweeping, mopping and swiffering our floors... We have mainly wood floors so I have been looking at modern rugs to fit our school space... perhaps then he can have fun vacuuming them...
Ryleigh putting pictures of items starting with the letter "n" in her alpha book...
For our stART project this week we read Katy and the Big Snow.... and I had the girls use toy cars to paint....
Ryleigh practicing her sight words by underlining in a book from Hubbards Cupboard...
I printed out this fun story to find letter n.... from Confessions of a Homeschooler...
The girls used these training chopsticks to transfer pom poms....
The girls painted with watercolor and then we put some salt on them to create fun crystals...
The girls did a number match found in my printables
The girls had fun cutting out face features from a magazine and recreating a face of their own...
Usually Braeden is asleep when the girls are at preschool.... however, he woke up earlier and was able to be at the table like the big kids while we did our science experiments...

Here he is coloring.... next to climbing it is his new favorite activity....
Ryleigh finishing up some pattern work...we used some rubber frogs for a more hands on approach...
When the girls were done with them, Braeden got to play with them....
I think he likes school time... and although he liked the frogs- he really liked the experiments...
For Science time...we made an underwater color changing volcano... learning a little bit about acids and bases...but mainly watched the volcano bubble up like a lava lap (due to the vegetable oil) and change colors with lots of fizzing.... we did this one a couple of times to get different colors...
Ryleigh working on putting the numbers on her Letter of the Week Craft
Our finished n is for numbers!!
To see what others did this week check out Tot School at 1+1+1=1; Preschool Corner at Homeschool Creations; and the Weekly Wrap-up at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers.

Looks like you had a fun-filled week of great activities. Would love to know how you did the volcano. That sounds awesome. Your little ones are so cute and I love that your son joins in now too.

My youngest son LOVED my Mom's Swiffer Wet Jet so we got him one as his present! It was his favorite gift when he was 3! And my floors stayed clean! LOL
