I finally got my camera charged back up and took some pictures today to let you know what we have been up to. We started the letter "I" this week. Yesterday we talked about ice cream. We made cones out of construction paper, read a book about ice cream and even had ice cream cones for our snack. Brodie got some letter writing in and was excited to see that "I" was so easy to write. Today we read about inch worms and made these cute little creatures.
We also stuck foam worm stickers onto paper and colored them (ok, maybe they are catapillar stickers but who cares). Tomorrow we will talk about igloos and Friday will be insects.
I also made this little contraption. I saw something similar to this on another blog. The one they made was a little more fancy than mine but I figured it didn't need to be perfect as long as it serves its purpose. Brodie is great at counting but his number recognition is what we are working on. I am hoping this helps. I just used lids off of juice bottles and cardboard. I am also in the middle of making another Tot book. This one is really cool and I will post about it when it is finished.
We spent the rest of the morning today putting up our Valentine's decorations. It was a little refreshing to take down the snowman stuff as much as I like having it up. There will be an end to all this cold weather eventually! And as always the boys had fun taking turns between playing in the water and playing in the beans. Always a favorite activity.
