Okay, so most of this is from the past week/weekend. We've just recovered from a horrible stomach bug and have finally gotten our legs back! So this is mostly last week and some of this!
Last week was spent focusing on the Earth!
Monday we went and observed Kaelyn in her dance class! She's the sweet one in black!
We later purchased a mini-globe for $1 to reinforce the "sphere" concept. We are continuing with the Earth by studying the oceans! So, we made our Coffee Filter Heart Shaped fish using heart cookie cutters to trace out a design (big heart tip touching little heart tip), added googley eyes found at dollar tree and a fin! Anna worked on her fish/kissy sound, Heart shape, and blue again! These fish are also being used for Valentine's Day Cards with very cute "catch" phrases. We also colored various sea creatures to be used later on next week in our ocean collage showing where animals "should be"(sand dollars/hermit crabs on the beach/birds in air/fish in water/stingrays on bottom). All this ocean life talk prompted a trip to the Aquarium where Kaelyn was asked to place certain animals in their right habitats as well as mark off what colored fish she could spot. Here is the link for the "scavenger hunt"
I'm not going to lie, this is mostly last weeks and a few of this week! I was horribly sick! I've also decided that Anna really needs me to focus more on her (1-1) with fewer distractions, so instead of getting to clean a little in the morning, I'm taking the first hour of my day to play with her. Kaelyn is welcome to join in, but it's Anna directed play. She is responding so well to the added attention!
