School Daze.... A New Year begins....

Ryleigh is 4 1/2 yrs and Braeden is 28 Months
Although we have yet to have snow this winter (YAY!!!) We have started our winter theme in Tot School and K4.... Here are some of the things we did this week....

Our Winter Sensory Bin.... this is way messier than I anticipated and will be changed out sooner than later...
Handwriting without tears.... wet, dry, try....
K4 doing a high low game with kinderbach...
The girls practiced their math skills....Braeden working on his alpha book...
Both classes worked on some fine motor skills with sticker snowmen...
Braeden really liked this activity...
We started our Road Trip across America from Confessions of a Homeschooler...
this week we did CT...
One of the books we read this week (we read one a class)... was My Red Mittens...
For the project (both classes), we made handprints in red mittens.... this worked really well for Tot School, as our color of the week was RED...The finished mittens (some of them)....
Tot School did Letter H...is for Handprint....

You have a lot of fun looking activities. I was wondering what kind of games they play on the numbers mat you have? It looks like lots of fun!

I love your crafts too! Both turned out looking great!

We'll have to check out that book.

I stopped in from stART and am now your newest follower on GFC.
