School Daze.... I is for Ice cream....even in the winter

Braeden is 29 Months and Ryleigh is 57 months (4 1/2 yrs)

Here are some of the highlights from classes this week... we also did reading, alpha books, math, geography, Spanish, Baking (Whatcha Making Wednesdays)... along with some other activities...

Practicing fine motor transfers with over-sized tweezers... Braeden started with his fingers...
All the kids loved this project.... and repeated it over and over again...
Braeden finished the project by actually using the tweezers (and loving them!)
Working on putting on the sprinkles for our letter craft...
The finished "I" is for Ice Cream....
One of the books that we read this week was The Mitten by Jan Brett...
The kids made snowflake prints to go with it...
Cutting the foam into interesting shapes (snowflakes)...
Dipping the stamp (snowflake)... into the paint...
Smooshing the painted snowflake on the paper...
Ryleigh's finished snowflakes...
Working on playing quarter notes...
Practicing Wet, Dry, Try with Handwriting without tears... so far... no tears :-)
After class is over, the kids enjoy playing in our new playroom
(the other part of the basement)

We just did the letter I too! I couldn't think of very many ice cream crafts so we went with ice and igloos instead. I am a new follower and would love for you to share these activities at my tray link party. The tweezers, foam cutting and stamping are great tray activities!

I'm interested in what you use the pencil pouches that are hanging from the walls for. I've seen those ice cube trays at Kroger and thought about doing that very same thing with them! Looks like you had a very productive week!

I miss little ones!!!! School is still fun now, too, but that age was just delightful. :)

Wonderful week, as always. Love the stamping snowflakes. I've been dying to do a bit of a winter theme but it's been so warm that I don't dare mention snow for fear of a toddler sized tantrum. lol

What fun! I love the Handwriting without Tears program. I used it a little in the classroom when I was teaching and when my little girl turns four I plan on using it with her here at home :)

Thanks for linking up to WOTT! And for inviting me to Whatcha Making Wednesdays! I wish i was a creative cook! Maybe I will be inspired by your linky! Did you get your tweezers from amazon? I really need to buy some for Boogie. They look fun and easy to use.
