School Daze...Oo is for Ocean...and other things...

Ryleigh is 3 1/2 and Braeden is 17 Months

This week we did Letter of the Week "Oo" is for Ocean....
Ryleigh and Braeden practicing their letters ....
I had Ryleigh paint snow with food coloring and water... She LOVED it....I saw this fun activity on A Mommy's Adventures...
This is what we woke up to this morning.... EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!!!
Ryleigh and Daddy out in the snow building a snowman....
Braeden...sharing his stacking toy with Ryleigh...
Ryleigh practicing her patterns with these fun 3-D insects.... she sat down and pretty much did the entire booklet all at once...and LOVES playing with them....
We had a playdate in the beginning of the week and the girls made some pumpkin muffins....
While they waited for the muffins to finish baking they seemed to all congregate around the table...so I gave them file folder games to play with.... apparently it is always school time at our house.... :-)
Braeden with his girls while their sisters were baking....
Braeden and Juliette playing with blocks...waiting for the muffins to be ready...
Ryleigh practicing putting her numbers in order 1-20...... I also use these number cards to help her practice her spanish numbers... (and they are also our numbers for my Calendar Board)....
Braeden practicing his coloring...his most favorite past-time....
Ryleigh working on her alpha book....
For our stART project this week we did Reverse Snowflakes....
We are loving these find the letter stories from Confessions of a Homeschooler....
This week we did the sight word "do"... I had the girls put stickers under the word "do" in books from Hubbards Cupboard....
Some do-a-dot fun... from making learning fun...
We did a fun science experiment...the illusion of color change...
Braeden woke up from his nap in time to play tunnel with the girls...
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.

The snow painting looks like fun. I've been sending my daughter outside with spray bottles of colored water and letting her paint the yard. We hadn't thought to also try bringing the snow inside.
